Diverting and Sortation Conveyors
The Robson Verti-Divert
is a vertical sortation unit designed for use within Airport Baggage Handling Conveyor Systems for "in-line" X-ray and line diversion solutions. It is developed to divert cleared and uncleared bags to low and high-level collector conveyors stationed above one another.
The Robson Verti-Divert is rated for 25 bags per minute and is based on current maximum Level 1 X-ray throughputs; the 25 bags per minute can be down rated for lower throughput levels.
The unit utilises three standard queuing conveyors built from standard components.
The three queuing conveyors are mounted within a steel support frame, fixed to the floor. Conveyors A & B pivot on bearings mounted to the frame and are moved via a mechanical link mechanism driven by a timing belt connected to a geared motor drive unit. This drive unit is in turn controlled via an inverter unit.
The stationary Conveyor 'C' transports baggage away from the Verti-divert.
The inverter unit is used to give a smooth controlled motion to conveyors A + B during the pivoting action. It also allows a variance in speed for the motion. The 3 standard queue conveyors run at high speed to give maximum bag travel speed through the unit.
Manual controls allow inching movement of conveyors A + B minimising downtime in the event of jams.
The Verti-Divert Conveyor is guarded with both weld mesh and mild steel plate guarding to suit site conditions.
The Robson Plough Diverter
is used at most national and international airports to divert bags from the main carrying conveyor either to an alternative direction or to reject to level 3 inspection. Automatically deployed the plough blocks the way of the travelling bag and with the rotating grip face belt on the plough the bag is gently sweep to the desired direction
The plough's design is to guide pre-selected bags from the main carrying conveyor to an alternative conveyor at a maximum rate of 20 bags per minute. Rigidly constructed and mounted to withstand impact from a maximum specified single bag weight.
The plough is post and frame mounted fitted with both thrust and pivot bearings providing a robust and reliable mechanism for diverting luggage.
A geared motor unit via the pivoting mechanism, deploys the plough all suitably guarded to the latest British and European Standards.
The plough conveyor is of pressed slider bed construction from 2.5mm thick mild steel plate. Grip face conveyor belt, vulcanised endless will run around terminal pulleys comprising of a head pulley with integral roller bearings running on a dead shaft and a tail pulley running in self aligning bearings keyed to a shaft, complete with shaft mounted geared motor unit.
The conveyor belt speed will be variable to cater for both the home and deployed position.
The Robson Pusher Diverter
is a compact solution to diverting luggage within the Airport Baggage Handling Conveyor System. Providing fast action to divert bags 90° to other conveyor lines.
The pusher is designed to push bags off at a maximum rate of 45 bags per minute rigidly constructed and mounted to withstand impact from a maximum specified single bag weight at the belt speed. The pusher is mounted on a fabricated frame complete with shock absorbing feet.
The pusher is deployed by a 2.2 kW geared motor unit. The output shaft of the geared motor unit is equipped with a timing belt pulley which drives a pair of drive pulleys via a timing belt tensioned by two spring loaded devices.
Each drive pulley is connected to a drive shaft which runs in upper and lower bearings and at the lower end connects to a pivot arm via upper and lower locking nuts. The other end of each pivot arm runs in a pair of bearings mounted in the pivot arm located over a pivot pin.
The pivot pin is welded to the pusher arm and one pusher arm connects to the pusher blade by a metalastic bush and the other pusher arm is welded to the pusher blade. The face of the pusher blade is covered with a damping/isolation pad. The Horizontal Pusher is suitably guarded with both weld mesh and mild steel plate guarding as appropriate.
