West River Conveyors & Machinery Company is a leader in custom-built, custom-designed belt drives and components. Whether you need a belt drive, tail section, take-up unit, special-designed unit, or replacement parts, West River is here to help you meet your production goals.
West River has been providing customers with quality service for more than 32 years. In addition to building new conveyor products, West River also stocks a wide variety of new and used speed reducers, motors, couplings, conveyor pulleys and other conveyor components to suit your needs.
The company is committed to building quality products and exercises quality control in all that is built and sold. Total customer satisfaction is the primary goal with every customer interaction and every item leaving West River's property. All of our conveyor components are manufactured in our recently expanded 70,000ft² state-of-the-art facility.
West River Conveyors' belt drives are built from carefully selected, industry-leading materials and constructed to provide a strong and rigid, mine-duty frame that doesn't distort during installation or use. Our heavy-duty frames are built from heavier steel than most companies use, providing a drive that withstands the most demanding underground and above-ground bulk manufacturing operations. Our ability to work with you to create a drive suitable for your needs is our number one priority.
West River currently builds an alignment-free drive, combination drive/take-up unit, chain driven drive and shaft-mounted reducer belt driven drive. All drives are available in a variety of belt widths and any desired horsepower/voltage.
West River can supply any type of starter to suit your needs. Our starters are enclosed in metal and are suitable for underground mine-duty use. The three most common types available are across-the-line, soft start and variable frequency drive (VFD). Recently, West River partnered with System Controls, Inc. in Birmingham, Alabama to provide Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) starters for their belt drives. The new Triple 500HP VFD drive was recently added to the product line.
West River's custom-built tail sections are available in a variety of heights and belt widths from 36in to 96in. West River has built more than 1,350 tail sections. The most popular designs include our glide bar, impact bed, impact idler, feed thru, and AR plate. A proven heavy-duty structural design and ability for quick turnaround makes us a desirable choice for a tail that fits your application.
Our take-up units are designed with a variety of options including cylinder selection and travel length/belt storage features, with our heavy-duty rigid frames able to withstand the most rugged applications. The 20/40 hydraulic take-up unit is the most common but we often recommend lengths based on your needs.
Power packs are the motive source of any size take-up unit. West River carries a variety of hydraulic power packs for use with our take-up units. We have power packs in stock for a number of different take-up unit sizes with standard t-frame motors - including 5, 7.5 and 20HP. We have successfully manufactured custom power packs for different take-up unit styles and sizes.
Our 50-acre property and 30,000ft² square foot warehouse is stocked with new and used parts ready to sell in a pinch. We stock a variety of top brand speed reducers including Falk, Link Belt, Hansen, Dodge, Foote Jones, Browning, REX and many more. We also stock reducers in new, surplus new and used condition.
In addition to complete units, we also stock housing, gearing and shafting. West River has sold new and used equipment to customers in almost all 50 states.
