Roller Selection:


The load being moved on the conveyor, determines the type of roller to be used. The length and material of the roller is defined as well as the type of roller bearings. It is important as well to consider the environment in which transporter will be in, since wet or corrosive environments demand special materials and rollers for the conveyor.

Rollers For:
- Light load service
- Medium load service
- Heavy load service for wet
  environments. (Maintenance
  free)
- Extra heavy weight for wet
  environment. (Maintenance Free)
