Vertical Divert

Features & Benefits

The Vertical Diverter can route bags from a single source to one of two routes,

The Robson Verti-Divert is a vertical diverting 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.
