Gravity Roller Conveyor
Found in most conveyor systems, gravity roller conveyor is a very common type of conveyor. This style of conveyor uses gravity to propel an item along the conveyor line. The package travels along on rollers which are commonly spaced approximately 3-6 inches apart. This style of conveyor is best for use with flat-bottomed loads, however is typically able to support a heavier load than skatewheel conveyor.Gravity Roller Conveyor Prices
"Roller conveyor typically comes in either above frame or below frame roller configurations. If the rollers are the above frame type, your package can be wider than the overall width of the conveyor. If your rollers are below frame, your package can only be as wide as the conveyor frame."

Skatewheel Gravity Conveyor
Skatewheel conveyors are another popular gravity fed conveyor option. Like gravity roller conveyor, these conveyors use gravity to move a load along a set path. Unlike roller conveyor however, these conveyors use many small wheels (often called skatewheels) to support the load. Skatewheel conveyor is typically better suited for lighter loads with smooth bottoms. The skatewheels can be made from a variety of materials such as steel, aluminum, nylon or plastic.Skatewheel Conveyor Prices
