Configuring a YORK En-Masse Conveyor

The following steps outline the process of configuring an appropriate YORK conveyor for your application. These steps are intended as a guide only. We strongly advise contacting YORK to review your application and obtain the appropriate recommendations for your specific needs.

STEP 1: Determine application requirements

  • Material type handled
  • Power requirements vary for different grains
  • The method of feeding the conveyor
    The conveyor can be flood fed were the capacity of the conveyor is determined by the speed of the chain. The conveyor can be control fed by a bucket elevator, for example. The conveyor capacity is affected by how it is fed.
  • The required system capacity in bushels per hour or metric tons per hour
  • The length between the input and output of the conveyor

STEP 2: Select a standard model size

  • Review the model specifications in the En-Masse Conveyor section of the current YORK sales manual to choose a standard model based on the desired capacity.

STEP 3: Choose options

  • Determine any desired options

STEP 4: Verify power, bearing diameter and maximum conveyor length.

  • Use the tables in the current YORK sales manual to determine horsepower and bearing diameter requirements as well as maximum acceptable conveyor lengths.

STEP 5: Verify dimensions for the selected model size.

  • Use the diagrams and tables in the current YORK sales manual for verification.
