Methods or apparatus for conveying articles or bulk solid material from one location to another, for example within an industrial plant,

  • by gravity, for example in chutes
  • by rollers, for example on driven or non-driven roller-ways
  • on endless load-carrying surfaces, for example belts or chains, or an essentially endless series of individual load-carriers
  • on jigging surfaces
  • by impellers, for example reciprocating scrapers, rotating fingers or elements carried by endless traction members
  • by throwing
  • by rotating or screw-like impellers
  • by fluid flow or pressure, for example in tubes or by floating

Relationships with other classification places

Storage

This subclass is the general, function-oriented place for mechanical aspects of storage of the articles and materials stated in the definition statement above. Classification is made in this subclass if the method or apparatus is of general interest in the field of storing. This subclass does not cover modification or treatment of materials by storing, for example by drying or maturing.

If the method or apparatus is characterised by its adaptation to particular materials or articles (for example silage or parked cars) it is classified in the place for that adaptation, if such a place exists. For examples of application places, see the section "References relevant to classification in this subclass" below.

If subject matter is of interest both for its general function-oriented aspects and its application aspects, classification should be made both in this subclass and in the place for the application.

Conveyors

This subclass is the general, function-oriented place for conveyors or similar transport devices. Such devices are incorporated in many different types of apparatus and industrial plants. Classification is made in this subclass if the method or apparatus is of general interest in the field of conveying, for example when it relates to the solution of a problem that is internal to a conveyor (for example a driving mechanism) or not primarily related to a particular process.

If the method or apparatus is characterised by its adaptation to a particular process (for example drying or heat treatment) or its incorporation in a particular apparatus (for example a root-crop harvester or a furnace), it is classified in the place for that process or apparatus, if such a place exists. For examples of application places, see the section "References relevant to classification in this subclass" below. This subclass does not cover processes in which articles or materials are modified or treated during conveying.

If subject matter is of interest both for its general function-oriented aspects and its application aspects, classification should be made both in this subclass and in the place for the application.

Transport devices

This subclass essentially covers stationary or portable transportation devices, such as conveyors or conveying systems. It does not cover vehicles per se, which are covered by classes B60 - B64, or containers, trays or pallets, which are covered by B65D. For more detailed references see the section "Informative references" below.

Loading and unloading

This subclass covers loading and unloading of vehicles, ships and aircraft by means which are not incorporated in those vehicles. Loading by means which are incorporated in vehicles is covered by the places for the vehicles. For examples of such places see the section "References relevant to classification in this subclass" below.

Filling and emptying

This subclass covers general, function-oriented aspects of filling and emptying of larger containers, such as bunkers or hoppers. Classification is made in this subclass if the method or apparatus is of general interest in the field.

If the method or apparatus is characterised by its adaptation to particular materials or processes (for example in forage silos or coke ovens) it is classified in the place for that adaptation, if such a place exists. For examples of application places, see the section "References relevant to classification in this subclass" below.

If subject matter is of interest both for its general function-oriented aspects and its application aspects, classification should be made both in this subclass and in the place for the application.

This subclass does not cover filling of packages or small containers, for example boxes or cans, which is covered by subclass B65B.

With the exception of manual tilting of barrels, which is covered by B65G 65/24 , this subclass does not cover emptying of small containers, for example cans or casks, which is covered by B65B and B67C 9/00.
