Belt Conveyors are utilized in most AFS systems. Flat belts are typically used for whole tires. Trough belts are typically used for all bulk materials. In recent projects, AFS has used wide shallow trough belts to convey both whole tires and bulk materials on one conveyor. Truss framed conveyors are typical in AFS systems for long spans and a preferred method to elevate tires into a preheater tower where space allows. Truss framed or channel framed, AFS will appropriately design for the application.
