Belt Trippers

A belt tripper is used to “trip” the material off the conveyor at specified locations between the terminal pulleys. A belt tripper can either be in a fixed position, or travel continuously at a constant speed for layered stacking.

 A belt tripper consists of a structure with two pulley assemblies. As the belt passes over the upper pulley, the material is discharged from the belt into a collection chute. The material is then diverted to one side or both sides of the belt for discharge, or back onto the belt if the desired discharge position is at the end of the conveyor. Several powered drive options and chute configurations are available.

There are two types of belt trippers: Fixed Belt Trippers discharge at a definite point. Traveling Belt Trippers are independent units which travel on tracks discharging at selected points or allows continuous uniform stock-out of material along its travel. Traveling Belt Trippers are usually self-propelled, motor driven and motor winch propelled.

Belt Tripper Solutions

Belt trippers are used to solve many applications where more than one conveyor discharge position is required. Other situations where belt trippers can be an advantage:

  • If you need a reversing belt with discharges at both ends
  • If along the conveyor belt your operations need to be filling many bins
  • Or if you require a long continuous pile such as filling a bulk storage building

Tripper discharge spouts are built to suit each installation. They can be designed to discharge to either side or both sides or can reload onto the belt for an end discharge.
