Conveyors are used for loading and unloading trucks and moving packages or other items through facilities or along assembly lines. Depending on the load and application, conveyors are configured by the manufacturer by the number of wheels and the spacing of the wheels. It is important to consider the size, flowability, abrasiveness, corrosiveness, moisture content, and the temperature at which it must be kept before deciding on a conveyor system that suits your company’s needs. Distinct types of conveyors include belt, pneumatic, and screw.
Belt conveyors consist of pulleys with a closed loop of carrying something from one place to another. It rotates about while one or both pulleys are powered, which moves the belt forward. The main industrial classes of belt glasses include material handling and bulk material handling.
Pneumatic conveyors use pipes or ducts that carry materials and a stream of air. Because of this, the materials are free flowing materials like cement. Using air pressure, products are moved through tubes , and items are pushed from one entry point to an exit point.
Screw conveyors use rotating helical screw blades to move liquid or granular materials. Typically, they are used horizontally and in bulk handling industries. They are an efficient way to move semi-solid materials, like food waste, wood chips, cereal grains, meat, and more.

Purchasing used equipment is typically 40-50% cheaper than buying new and can save thousands of dollars. Buying used permits the purchaser to control the delivery date, often just a few weeks, whereas new equipment delivery can take months or even a year to manufacture.
