Our specially-designed solutions will allow your personnel to safely crossover active conveyors at designated and approved locations, significantly reducing the potential for worker injury and dramatically enhancing the efficiency of workflow.
Routes of travel within job functions and conveyor operations, and duties such as maintenance or service, often require movement across conveyors, assembly lines, small machines, piping or other obstructions. Used in industrial applications, crossovers are the economical choice compared to adding a gate into an existing system.
The welded steel construction of our conveyor crossovers allows for a longer life cycles and for lower maintenance costs then gates. Because a Bluff conveyor crossover is designed specific to your needs, the customization includes capacities and configurations, specific widths and vertical clearances. These clearances range from conveyor height to an elevation which clears the both the conveying surface AND the highest item expected to be conveyed. Alternate configurations include U-shaped, Z-shaped and L-shaped with intermediate landings where necessary, based on your crossover footprint restrictions.
