Hi Roller Conveyors
designs and manufactures carbon steel, stainless steel or galvanized enclosed belt conveyors. Hi Roller developed the original version 25 years ago and the enclosed belt conveyor has become the standard of the industry.
Any dust or spilled material falls onto the returning belt, travels to the tail section, is reloaded to the top of the enclosure and directed back onto the belt’s carrying surface.
Hi Roller conveyors must meet three primary goals: they must be totally enclosed and self-cleaning, designed without bearings exposed to the internal atmosphere, and maintenance-friendly. Following these guidelines, Hi Roller has developed numerous models to handle capacities up to 4,800 tph.
The "Consignor," a totally enclosed moveable tripper designed to replace open belt trippers in enclosed galleries, is remote-controlled via a programmable logic controller (PLC).
Hi Roller has developed many innovative options, and its literature can be downloaded through our web site at www.hiroller.com.
