are located in Clearfield, Utah. Our address is 372 South Main St.

Why are you located in Clearfield,
We, the principles, grew up in Clearfield and the surrounding towns. We
attended the local schools and churches. We have been in business since
1977, but have had business ties here long before that. We feel we can
offer you, the public, the best services by remaining close to all our
resources and personnel.
do I know what conveyor is best for me?
We have many
options when it comes to your specific needs. The main determining
factor is the material you need to move.
How do I
determine the best conveyor length for my job?
- series conveyor (16" concave belt without cleats)
length can be just under 3 times the distance of the vertical climb at 22�.
It needs about � 90% of its length for the horizontal clearance. (See
SD - series
conveyor (16" concave belt with cleats) length needs
to be just over 1� times the distance of the vertical climb at 40�.
It needs about � 75% of its length for the horizontal
C - series
conveyor (10" belt in a vertical trough, with
� moon shape 'C' bucket cleats)
length only needs to be about 1.15 times the distance of the vertical
climb at 60�
using up only
50% of its length for the horizontal
(Note: The C - series is restricted to fine, non-granular,
products that wont lodge between the cleat and the side wall of the
determining factors are the conveyor
and how you are going to handle
& place the unit and
distances you need to reach given the conveyor length options
available. Conveyors can piggy back from one to the other using the
receiving hopper or by simply placing a 4" x 4" across the rear frame
end, for the discharge of the previous conveyor to rest on.
Why don't you list a price sheet? I
understand your minimums are quite high.
You can never give enough information
on specialty items. We want to make sure you are bidding a job using
figures on the correct equipment. Conveyors are so specialized that
prices do vary on jobs depending upon availability, maintenance,
shifts, chemical applications, product type
& quantity. Competitive prices begin at 1
week minimum rates.
Why don't you have the 10 foot
feel the 16" concave belts are best for most applications, rather than
a narrower flat belt, which these stackable units are. We do have the
'C' series conveyor with
taller cleats when a narrower conveyor is preferred. Also our motors
are easier to detach for preventative maintenance. The 10' stackable
conveyors also don't lend themselves to piggy backing a long open span
as do our variety of longer conveyor lengths
If I don't rent from you,
where else can I go?
Most rental yards refer their customers directly to us, though we'll
work through your choice if you prefer a certain vendor. We are not
always the most competitive on short term rentals; If asked, we'll
recommend another known source.
What are some things I can check
to make sure the conveyor is going to run properly?
Here is a checklist that our technicians
go through to make sure our conveyors are running at their best.
Align pulleys with hose clamps - On
every motor there is a rod attached that slides into the conveyor pipe
mount that has 1 to 3 hose clamps on it. The hose clamp help make the
'V'-belt straight by keeping the pulleys aligned.
Mechanical Leverage on 'V'-belt - On
every motor there is a tension chain on a spring that you attach to the
'S' hook on the conveyor to increase or decrease the motor 'V'-belt
tension. If the motor pulley spins on the V-belt under load, you may
need to mark and remove the tension chain, remove the V-belt, re-hook
the chain at 1 or 2 links tighter, put the V-belt on the small motor
pulley first then start the V-belt on the big pulley and use the
mechanical leverage of turning the big pulley by hand to force the
V-belt on tighter.
3 - 12 gauge extension cord / 110 volt motors / 20
amp - You will need to have a 12 gauge
extension cord (100' max) for up to a 20 amp current and a 20 amp
circuit breaker for every motor.
Belt alignment and tighten - At the
tail end of the conveyor there are adjusting bolts on each side, called
take ups, that you can alter to make the belt tighter and move
straighter, or in alignment. If the drive drum spins on the carrier
belt, you will need to tighten these take up adjusting bolts. Opposite
the drive chain side, at the drive end of the conveyor (same side as
motor is on) there is one adjusting bolt to keep the drive drum in
alignment. You will need to unlock the nut on the threads and loosen up
the four bolts that secure that side of the drive shaft flangette in
place so you can move the drum to align the belt. If the belt is
traveling closer to the adjusting bolt or motor side, you would tighten
the nut on the bolt by turning it clockwise (ccw if belt is traveling
closer to the opposite or drive chain side).
Spare 'V'-belts - Make sure you have
at least one spare V-belt for each conveyor. They are tie wired on the
frame just forward of the motor area. The 'V'-belt size is 5L700 or
Gas engine level - The
engine needs to be level with the ground. It can not exceed 15� off level.
There are several pipes making up the motor mount on the conveyor and
the motor mount plate bolted to the bottom of the gas motor. These
provide a wide range of mounting options for the motor mount rod to be
inserted, in order to keep the gas engine level.
