Introduction to VRCs (Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors)
What is a Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor?
Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor (VRC)
Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors are a classification of freight lifts, or material lifts, governed by the ASME B20.1 Safety Standard, used for moving materials only from one level to another. They provide an efficient, convenient, and safe way to lift materials from basements, to mezzanines, and between floors in multi-story buildings. They are also significantly more cost effective than traditional elevators.
CIP Material Lifts are ideally suited for safe and efficient movement of materials to a mezzanine, new or existing upper floor levels, or once inaccessible space.
What are the Many Benefits of a VRC?
- Increased productivity with reduced manpower requirements
- Increased space utilization through easy access to mezzanines, lofts, upper floor levels, or once inaccessible space
- Increased safety through transporting materials on equipment designed and built for heavy duty lifting
- Long term performance and reliability
- Cost effective to install, operate, and maintain vs. elevators or hydraulic lifts
- Quick return on investment (ROI)
CIP vertical reciprocating conveyors – the alternative to costly freight elevators!
Vertical reciprocating conveyors are safer than using a forklift or manpower to move materials between levels and are easier and less costly to operate and maintain than elevators or forklifts.
