Like the name implies, a tripper conveyor is used to “trip” the material off the conveyor at locations between the terminal pulleys. A tripper can either be fixed position or movable and 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 for any belt tripper.
