Hytrol E24™ Roller & Belt Conveyors: Simple, Flexible and Efficient
Hytrol Conveyor, a world leader in the design and manufacturing of conveyor systems since 1947, has perhaps no better example of their fierce commitment to high quality solutions than the E24™ line of conveyor solutions.
As a company specializing in conveyor systems, we’ve found there’s no other conveyor solution on the market today like the E24 ™ product line. By focusing on simplicity and efficiency, they have used their decades of experience to design the 24-volt DC conveying solution customers have asked about for years. E24 ™ sets the industry standard by providing a long lasting, low voltage means of product transportation. Better yet, the E24 ™ works great with the EZLogic zero pressure accumulation systems. Whether it’s roller transportation conveyors, belt conveyors, or powered roller accumulation systems, the E24 ™ product line provides many benefits to the end user.
A Few Hytrol E24 Benefits:
|Smart energy efficient power use||Minimal Maintenance|
|Multiple options for accumulation||Simple to install|
|Variable speed adjustment||Very quiet operation|
|Single motor design||No air requirements|
|Lower than normal elevations||Long Life expectancy|
|Plug-N-Go Cabling system||Creativity in system design|
E24 ™ conveyor is designed with a drive train along its entire length with smaller drives located strategically to allow multiple functions in multiple zones. This includes the capability of different speeds, multiple directions, and starting/stopping individual zones. Additionally, conveyor elevations can be lower due to the space saving design – allowing for more flexibility in unit layout.
Single Uniform Motor
The E24 ™ external motor has no gears or brushes and has very efficient heat dissipation. Fewer moving parts means it’s safer, quieter and has a lower rate of internal component failure. The single uniform motor is also designed for all conveyor widths so there is smooth, continuous motion without the need to stock multiple motors types.
Decentralized Drive System
The decentralized drive system is simple to install with smaller drives located throughout the length of the entire unit. This is key to the popularity of this system as it offers the ability to change speed and/or direction on specific conveyor zones. This also allows for a sleep mode capability which cuts energy use when product isn’t flowing.
You can expect long life with the E24 ™ design. Up to 125,000 hours of continuous operation requiring less maintenance due to fewer internal components.
