TRADITIONAL BELT CONVEYORS
Belt conveyors are the most common method of product transfer. Because of their simplicity we fabricate all items in this section to-fit for each project. In larger bulk applications, the belt often cups or wraps around the product for added security and option flexibility.
Roller Conveyors are in-line rollers which allow gravity or momentum to carry product to its destination, and are typically preceeded and/or followed by belt conveyors to control speed.
CORRUGATED BELT CONVEYORS
Corrugated belt conveyors have extra material on the sides and deep segments allowing product to be carried horizontally and nearly vertically by the same belt.
CHAIN-DISK CONVEYING SYSTEMS
Also known as chain-and-puck or cable-and-puck conveying, this method uses spaced-out pucks to drag product through a tube. Product is gravity-fed in, dropping between the pucks in the top, and gravity-fed out via cut-outs on the bottom. This method is effective, gentle on the product, and can go vertically and about tight corners with little difficulty. Chains are typically the best method because they are cheaper and don’t wind up over time.
AUGER CONVEYING SYSTEMS
Auger conveying employs a turning screw-shaft in a tube. Straight augers are like screws with disproportionately large threads, and flex augers are the same without the solid core (just the threads). This allows transference about (wider) corners but at the cost of efficiency when sloping too steeply.
Silos come in various shapes, sizes, and materials for bulk storage. If you’re wondering if you should get a silo, the answer is almost always “yes”. The money saved in bulk orders quickly offsets the cost.
BULK BAG UNLOADERS
Bulk bag unloaders stage product by the 2,000 lb super-sack. Our proprietary designs allow them to fit in tight spaces and deliver the product efficiently and simply.
