The Horizontal Units from Robsons Handling Technology designed to guide pre-selected bags from the main carrying conveyor to an alternative route, rigidly constructed and mounted.
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 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.
