your conveyors be lengthened at a later date
to facilitate the growth of our business?
Yes they can! With a Rancon / Bridgeveyor conveyor,
our modular design allows us to add or remove
parts to lengthen, shorten or re-configure an
existing system, quickly and easily.
I order a conveyor today, how long will it take
before it is ready to be shipped?
As a standard, we ask for 6-8 weeks delivery.
If you require the conveyor sooner, depending
on our schedule and the complexity of the system,
we can sometimes get a conveyor prepared and
ready for shipping in about 1-3 weeks. This
is thanks to our modular design and large assortment
of parts in our shipping department.
comparison to other conveyors, how does a Rancon
conveyor compare in price?
Our conveyors are designed with strength and
durability in mind. All components are made
of solid steel and most parts are heat treated
to last much longer than conventional conveyor
systems. You would expect our equipment to be
much more expensive than that of our “competitors”,
since they use thin gauge tube and plastic,
but realistically our prices are “competitive”
and we pride ourselves on giving our customers
more value for their money.
fast do your conveyors go?
Our D-1000 or
Units have the ability to travel anywhere from
0 fpm (feet per minute) to 72 fpm, depending
on the application. If you have a small conveyor
speed is not necessary, but if you have a rather
large conveyor 60-72 fpm is recommended. Anything
faster than 72 fpm will generate centrifugal
force, causing the products to lean outward
away from its axis.
is the maximum weight your conveyors carry per
The maximum load we recommend per foot is 100
lbs. (45.5 kg). Our C-250 conveyor has an engineer
rating of 100 lbs/ft, but with our P-801
Four Pendant Carrier and P-701
Dual Pendant Carrier, we have the ability to
increase our load capacity by spanning product
over multiple footages.
is the life expectancy of your conveyor systems?
We have some applications that have been running
365 days a year 7 days a week… some on
double shifts, and have been in operation since
1969. With the proper maintenance and lubrication,
there is no reason your application shouldn’t
achieve these same results.
often do your conveyors need maintenance?
This question all depends on your application
and the frequency of the conveyors usage. As
a general rule of thumb, a service should be
conducted a few weeks after the initial installation
(to tighten any loose chain) and again about
6 months after that. After this break in period
has passed, an annual to semi-annual service
is recommended to keep your Rancon / Bridgeveyor
conveyor operating in an optimal working condition…
again, this all depends on application and usage.
are the limitations of your conveyor designs?
With our unique product, each section of conveyor
is modular. This means that everything bolts
together in prefabricated sections, giving us
the ability to follow virtually any path regardless
of its intricacies. We can go around, above
or under obstacles which would otherwise be
a problem for other conveyor companies.
