Abstract

See full text

A belt conveyor and a method for accelerating articles conveyed atop a moving conveyor belt. The conveyor belt includes rollers that are arranged to rotate on axes transverse to the direction of belt travel. The rollers have a large-diameter portion on which conveyed articles ride and one or more smaller-diameter portions that can be engaged by a bearing surface to rotate the rollers as the conveyor belt advances in the direction of belt travel. Articles atop the large-diameter portion are propelled in the conveying direction at a speed greater than twice the forward speed of the belt.
