Flow rail conveyor

Flow rail skate wheel conveyors are used to make simple gravity conveyors for pallets, skids, totes and cartons. They are the cheapest form of conveyor per foot, yet have high flexibility and excellent weight capacity.

  • Turn virtually any surface into a rolling / gliding surface for light to heavy loads
  • Fit into existing warehouse racking to enable loads to slide into position
  • Heavy Duty galvanized construction – up to 400 pounds per foot load rating depending on model when fully supported
  • Steel wheel flow rail is designed to handle high weight capacities
  • Multiple rollers are in contact with the load at all times enabling smooth movement
  • Made in the USA by Ultimation Industries, LLC
  • Suitable for conveyors and conveyor side guides for belt conveyors and roller conveyors
  • Cut to length and mount where needed to enable pallets and other items to flow smoothly
  • Available in various sizes (order online now for 5′ and 10′ sections)
  • Various wheel and channel combinations with regular and offset  wheels
  • Wheel also sold separately for fixed applications

Seven Styles available. Standard lengths 5′, 8′ and 10′

Ultimation flow rail (skatewheel conveyor) is available in 5′, 8′ or 10′ sections. See the image gallery on this page for photos and dimensions of all styles. Made from heavy duty powder coated or galvanized steel, this product is typically used to create simple gravity conveyors or as side guides for motorized roller conveyors. Wheels are 1-15/16″ diameter. Suitable for -10 to 400 F temperatures. Weight capacity is dependent on support available. Fully supported load rating is  260 – 400 pounds per foot (i.e rollers and bearings loading) where the flow rail is mounted to a structural surface. If mounted without full underside support load rating is reduced.

Flow Rail safety

  • Never stand on or near flow rack or flow rail track!
  • Heavy loads may move quickly and continue to accelerate
  • Be careful when creating systems where loads may create pinch points between the load and the rack or conveyor structure
