Metering Systems (Sanitary)

Metering systems are designed to create a minimal pitch of product that are being transported in a random pattern.  There are numerous ways product can be metered. The most common way is a brake/meter conveyor system (2 conveyors).  The Brake conveyor slows product down to the minimum rate possible while the meter conveyor runs at a faster rate (1.5 to 2 times the rate of the brake conveyor) to pull the necessary gap for the downstream equipment.

Key Features:

Typically for light and medium sized loads.  Can be suitable for product, package, carton and case handling. Light duty to medium construction.


  • Washdown construction available
  • Option one drive (infeed brake conveyor to be slave driven off metering conveyor tail section)
  • High friction belting for metering conveyor
