Chain Driven Live Roller (CDLR) conveyors are ideal for transporting loaded pallets, tires, drums, or other heavy items. The welded construction makes them rugged and durable enough to handle even the toughest conditions. The sprocketed rollers and roll to roll chain system provide positive driving power to the product. Made to order lengths and widths are a standard offering.
Chain Driven Live Roller conveyor (CDLR) consists of (2) structural channel sideframes separated by welded on structural angle spreaders. The sideframes support a bed of rollers with internal bearings that allow the roller tubes to rotate around a fixed axle that extends through holes in each sideframe. There is a welded on drive base that supports a motor and gear reducer. A b-hub sprocket keyed to the output shaft of the reducer delivers rotation to (2) of the rollers through the drive chain. The subsequent rollers are driven by a series of roller to roller chains. A guard is required for safety purposes and consists of a formed steel bottom guard that is welded to the spreaders and a formed steel top guard that is bolted to the sideframe and typically painted safety yellow. A separate drive guard is formed to cover the drive chain and sprocket. Structural channel legs can be welded or bolted to the conveyor frames.
