Explanation:
It would certainly make sense if this were "convoyeur/transporteur à écailles". A plate conveyor would be appropriate for transporting concrete blocks since it would be more robust and resist abrasion better than other types.

Maybe "sélecteur" is their term for "convoyeur à écailles de sélection", a plate conveyor with some sort of pusher/diverter system for redirecting the blocks.

Our plate conveyor is designed as per national criteria JB2389-78. Scalelike conveyor meets industry standard JB/T 7013-93. Foll.
