Merit Line Aluminum or Steel Frame Conveyors

Sturdy and reliable even under the most demanding applications, Merit Line Conveyors are designed to meet a wide range of conveying needs.


Main Features:

  • Aluminum or Steel. . . it’s your choice – choose aluminum for greater portability, steel for maximum heavy duty industrial wear.
  • Direct Drive Package: The motor and SEALED GEAR REDUCER attach directly to the pulley shaft, minimizing maintance.
  • No roller chain or sprockets to align
  • 150 lbs. maximum load
  • Leg Sets and Castors included (adjustable up to 34" belt height)
  • Double V-Guide Belt Tracking: Provides exceptionally stable belt tracking, which significantly extends belt life. Guides are on the sides rather than the middle make it easier to track the belt.
  • Semi-Modular Construction: EMI belt conveyors are built in sections to allow future changes in belt length, if desired.
  • Optional Accumulation Hoppers, and Nosebar Available

  • Specifications:

    1. Drive Package: The Direct Drive package includes a C-faced, TEFC 1/3 hp motor. Motors through 1 hp are 110/60/1 voltage and come with a thermal protected toggle switch motor starter in a NEMA 1 enclosure. 15' of SJ cord with a standard three-prong plug is pre-wired to the starter (other voltage and motor starters available). Control wiring is contained in liquid tight conduit and connectors. Drive packages for conveyors 3'–30' long have 150 lbs. maximum load (drive packages for heavier loads are available). NOTE: If an optional variable speed drive is purchased, we do not recommend running the motor at less than 1/3 of the overall output (speed), as this could result in lowering the life expectancy of the motor. If you are planning on running at less than 1/3 of the output, please consult an EMI Representative.

    2. Belt Guidance: True Track Belt Guidance System comes standard on 3'–30' long conveyors. Using a Double V-guide slot in the frame, 1/4" wall crowned pulleys, and bonded Double V-guide belting, “True Track” minimizes belt run off and reduces belt tracking maintenance.

    3. Pulleys: To ensure long lived operation, 3.5" diameter crowned pulleys incorporate 1" diameter shafts, self aligning sealed ball bearings with eccentric locking collars, telescopic take-up adjustment, position locking nuts, and Zerk grease fittings.

    4. Belting: Our easy to clean, FDA approved, white, PVC belting with staple-type belt lacing (which prevents lacing pullout and splice failure), makes belt maintenance quick and easy. Inclined conveyors have a bottom cleat support plate and bonded flexible cleats that have no bolts or rivets that may tear out.

    5. Frame: Choose from 1/8" anodized sheet aluminum for greater portability, or 12-gauge painted (light grey) steel for maximum stability. Both are built to withstand heavy-duty industrial wear.

    6. Rails: To ensure molded pieces do not get pinched, damaged, or lost between the rail and belt, we place either 12-gauge stainless steel or 1/8" anodized aluminum 4" rails so that they overlap the belt by 0.5". To keep your molded parts contained on the infeed end of the conveyor, we include an infeed-end backpiece.

    7. Shipment: Generally conveyors 3'–10' are shipped fully assembled, pre-wired, tested, and ready to run (legs must be attached). Conveyors 11' and over are shipped partially assembled to minimize shipping damage. Some frame and belt assembly is required; drive packages and system panels are pre-assembled and tested. For your convenience, arrangements can be made for longer conveyors to be shipped assembled.

    8. Leg Sets: Quick adjusting leg sets and locking swivel castors are included as standard on all Merit Line conveyors. Belt height must be specified.
