Enhancements to Valu-Lift™ Vertical Conveyors From TKF Result in Lower Maintenance Requirements, High Speed

Valu-Lift Vertical Continuous LiftTKF has improved on its popular Valu-Lift™ Vertical Conveyor, redesigning the systems take-up and stub shaft assemblies to utilize internal ball bearings as opposed to bronze bushings. This design enhancement greatly reduces maintenance issues, and increases the life of the assemblies.

The Valu-Lift vertical conveyor is a four-strand, continuous lift, light-duty conveyor designed to handle cartons and other smooth-bottom unit loads up to 50 pounds. It offers economical modular construction and a patented platform designed specifically for efficient high-speed operation, low maintenance and simplified and quick assembly.

The unique platform design consists of simple, lightweight interlocking molded polymer flights with steel connecting pins and lifts at a maximum speed of 118 fpm. The conveyor can operate in up, down or reversible mode.

Standard net lifting heights range up to 20’-0” with customized heights available. The Valu-Lift’s maximum unit load is 50 lbs., with a length of up to 26”, and width of 16”,

Standard safety features include a 24 volt DC control, a current sensing relay, which instantly shuts down the conveyor if it is overloaded, totally enclosed shroud-type tunnel guards and a smooth, clean design.
