  • Conveying Equipment - Overhead Gravity Pressure Rolls
    The Mellott Overhead Gravity Pressure roll is used behind a rip saw or planer to assist the feed of lumber onto a rooftop transfer.
    Mellott has an onsite engineering and design team capable of meeting your specific needs. We will consult and coordinate with you to provide the best options for your application.
    Main System Components
  • Sizes: Standard: 24”, 36”, 48”. Custom sizes are available. (Recommend 6” wider than planer or rip saw)
  • Rolls: 6-5/8” OD with 1-7/16” shafts and bearings
  • Height: 34” +/- 1” with adjustable feet
  • Length: 24”
  • Electric Drive: Sumitomo reducer with 2 hp Motor
  • Electric Drive: 2 hp Variable Frequency Drive (speed - to be determined)
  • Electronic Sensor: Air cylinder, valve and electric eye. Life expectancy of the overhead gravity pressure roll will be enhanced if the electric eye lowers the top roll onto the lumber as opposed to the lumber driving the top roll open.
