specifications of spiral chute with skate technical specifications
general description the cm-27 with skate wheels is a spiral chute consists of reinforced 90° fiberglass modules assembled to a center pole support. each module is attached to the square center pole with a steel arm. trays/tote boxes are fed into the chute at the top and are gravity fed down to the bottom. it is possible to utilize a swoop module at the end for transitioning the tray/tote box to a horizontal take-away conveyor. an efficient and effective design that utilizes skatewheels to move trays from one level to another. each module has a flat bottom with vertical sides to contain the trays/totes and assist in maintaining tray/tote orientation.
1)1499 mm overall diameter of chute excluding the outside enclosure;2)elevation drop-in per 90° is 260.35mm;3)width between sidewalls of 90° profile is 457 mm.
2)each module has a flat bottom with vertical sides to contain the trays/totes and assist in maintaining tray/tote orientation.
3)skate wheels are inserted into the flat bottom of the chute surface. material fiberglass pieces are produced using the “hand lay-up” technique for stiffness, strength, toughness and uniformity of thickness. “chopper-gun” method of construction is not acceptable.
4)the fiberglass reinforcement has laminations (layers) of fiberglass consisting of 4 layers of 42.62 ml glassmat, 2 layers of 682 ml. woven, and 1 layer of glassmat strip on bolt flanges.surfacethe gel coat shell has a highly abrasion resistant filler and an ultraviolet stabilizer. appearanceto present a uniform appearance, the painting of underside of chute is available.
