QC Industries introduces the adjustable hopper, a new low profile conveyor accessory that includes two other products: flared side rails and end stops. Flared side rails can be used as a stand-alone accessory, or, by adding end stops, can create accessories for other applications.
Flared side rails are ideal for applications that require a drop zone wider than the width of the conveyor. These rails attach to the conveyor with adjustable guide rails, and are available in 12-inch to 48-inch lengths. End stops can be used in conjunction with the flared side rail to allow better control in directing product flow. Designed to be compatible with 1-inch and 2-inch cleats, end stops are equipped with a swing gate to help contain the product.
The greatest amount of product flow control can be obtained by adding an additional end stop to the configuration, thereby creating a hopper. The adjustable hopper is created by using flared side rails with two end stops, one on either end, that are adjustable down the length of the rail. The flared side rails, end stops, and adjustable hopper are designed with a stainless steel finish, and are compatible with 125 series standard, cleated, magnetic, and corrosion resistant conveyors, as well as 125-Z series angled frame and 250 series end and center drive conveyors.
QC Industries is the industry leader in low profile conveyors, offering standard low profile conveyors ranging from 2 inches wide up to 24 inches wide and up to 25 feet in length. QC offers a variety of styles including standard automation conveyors, cleated belt conveyors, magnetic conveyors, corrosion resistant conveyors, five configurations of angled frame conveyors, timing belt conveyors, and a broad selection of standard accessories.
