- n. A machine used to trip or unload a belt-conveyer. It consists essentially of two rolls placed one over the other in a suitable frame or support. The traveling-belt, guided upward by rollers supported by the frame of the tripper, passes over the upper roll, turns abruptly downward and backward and under the lower roll, and then onward in a horizontal direction. The load, which rests on the traveling-belt, is carried over the upper roll, when the sudden change in the direction of the belt throws it off into a spout which leads it away to the bins or other storage-places. The tripper may be fixed at one point, or it may travel on rails placed on each side of the conveyer for convenience in unloading at different points. The flxed tripper may be arranged to discharge into a bin and to stop automatically when the bin is full. See
