Ermanco Sortation Conveyor Systems

These two sortation systems were just removed from a low-use facility. These Ermanco sorters are very energy efficient and quiet because they utilize a series of narrow belts with individual take-ups. High-friction rollers raise to grip and gently divert products at a 90-degree angle right or left, on-the-fly. Continuous contact between belt and product provides maximum tracking accuracy for optimum sort reliability. These NBS 90 sorters run at speeds of 300 feet-per-minute with sort rates up to 65 cases-per-minute (single side).

Installation is quick and easy and can generally be done in half the time of conventional sorters. The NBS 90 sorters are designed to provide less product tipping and skewing, and overall superior diverting characteristics. These sorters also inherently have less noise, belt pull and component wear than traditional sorters.

System Specifications

  • Frame overall width 18-1/4"
  • Maximum through-put: 65 cpm
  • Product weight: 8 oz. to 75 lbs/product
  • Product minimum size: 6" x 9"

Please contact Sam Sterner at 320-485-4970 for additional details and pricing on these Ermanco Sortation Systems.
