Open Track Conveyors ( I-Beam Monorails)
I-Beam Monorail Conveyors are basically a light duty monorail system. The (2) wheel trolley is attached to the chain and rides on the bottom flange of an I-beam. The load is attached to the trolley and the series of trolleys are powered by a common chain drive. For heavier loads, load bars are used to spread the weight over a second pair of trolleys. Like a monorail system, they can be “snaked” through a plant by straight and curved routes, and at different elevations.
