Non-Powered Rollers in Gravity Conveyor Rollers are the most popular and simple method of conveying goods. The rollers are not powered. Goods are moved and conveyed by gravity or by human power. Conveyors are usually arranged horizontally or inclined.
Gravity roller is a device widely used in light material conveying systems. It uses the object's own gravity to promote the movement of the object. Typically, gravity rollers are made of metal, plastic, or composite materials and have a flat outer surface. They come in two common designs: straight rollers and curved rollers.

These belt rollers design the appearance and configuration of the rollers to suit different conveyor belts. A belt driven roller conveyor system is a series of structurally supported rollers that are driven by a belt.
The appearance and configuration of the rollers are designed to suit different conveyor belts.

These sprocketed heavy-duty conveyor rollers are used to replace or upgrade the rollers on heavy-duty chain-drive conveyors. Also known as chain-drive live rollers, they are ideal for moving heavy items such as pallets, drums, and bulk containers. The sprocketed rollers have teeth that engage with the drive chain to prevent the chain from slipping, even in dirty or oily conditions. These conveyor rollers are installed in roller conveyors to support and move items on the conveyor. The rollers let loads roll from one place to another, reducing the effort it takes to move the loads.

Conical rollers are also called curved rollers or conus rollers. These conveyor rollers are predominantly employed in piece goods conveyor systems to These conveyor rollers are predominantly employed in piece goods conveyor systems to allow for realizing curves or junctions.
Conical rollers typically have a tapered shape, with a larger diameter at one end and a smaller diameter at the other end.
This design allows the rollers to smoothly guide materials around curves in a conveyor system.

Frequently asked questions about conveyors roller

What Is a Conveyor Roller?

A conveyor roller is a line in which multiple rollers are installed for the purpose of transporting goods in a factory, etc., and the rollers rotate to transport the goods. They are also called roller conveyors.

They are available for light to heavy loads and can be selected according to the weight of the cargo to be transported.

In most cases, a conveyor roller is a high performance conveyor that is required to be impact and chemical resistant, as well as being able to transport items smoothly and quietly.

Inclining the conveyor allows the conveyed material to run on its own without external drive of the rollers.

What to Consider When Choosing a Roller?

Your rollers must fit your system exactly for optimal performance. Some different aspects of each roller include:

Size:  Your products and conveyor system size correlate to the roller size. The standard diameter is between 7/8″ to 2-1/2″, and we have custom options available.

Material:  We have several options for roller materials, including galvanized steel, raw steel, stainless steel and PVC. We can also add urethane sleeving and lagging.

Bearing:  Many bearing options are available, including ABEC precision bearings, Semi-precision bearings and Non-precision bearings, among other options.

Strength:  Each of our rollers has a designated load weight specified in the product description. Rolcon provides both lightweight and heavy-duty rollers to match your load sizes.

Uses of Conveyor Rollers

Conveyor rollers are used as conveyor lines to move loads from one location to another, for example, in a factory.

The conveyor rollers are suitable for conveying objects with relatively flat bottoms, as there may be gaps between the rollers.

Specific materials conveyed include food, newspapers, magazines, small packages, and many others.

The roller does not require power and can be pushed by hand or propelled by itself on an incline.

Conveyor rollers are often used in situations where cost reduction is desired.

Principle of Conveyor Rollers

A conveyor is defined as a machine that continuously transports a load. There are eight major types, of which belt conveyors and roller conveyors are the most representative.

The difference between belt conveyors and roller conveyors is the shape (material) of the line conveying the cargo.

In the former, a single belt rotates and is transported on it, while in the case of a roller conveyor, multiple rollers rotate.

The type of rollers is selected according to the weight of the cargo to be conveyed. For light loads, the roller dimensions range from 20 mm to 40 mm, and for heavy loads up to about 80 mm to 90 mm.

Comparing them in terms of conveying force, belt conveyors are more efficient because the belt makes surface contact with the material to be conveyed, and the force is greater.

Roller conveyors, on the other hand, have a smaller contact area with the rollers, resulting in a smaller conveying force.

This makes it possible to convey by hand or at an incline, and it has the advantage of not requiring a large power supply unit, etc., and can be introduced at a low cost.

How do I know what roller diameter to choose for gravity conveyors?

A typical 1 3/8” diameter roller has a capacity of 120 lbs. per roller. A 1.9” diameter roller will have an approximate capacity of 250 lbs. per roller. With rollers set on 3” roller centers, there are 4 rollers per foot, so the 1 3/8” rollers would typically carry 480 lbs. per foot. The 1.9” roller is a heavy duty roller that handles approximately 1,040 lbs. per foot. The capacity rating can also vary based on how the section is supported.
