From simple installations to complete system design and integration, we help move bulk dry solids, powders, and slurries efficiently. Whether it’s food, pharma, or industrial, there is a best method for moving every product and we deliver the appropriate level of speed and gentleness.
Also known as chain-and-puck or tubular drag, 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 conveyors, or screw conveyors, employ turning screw-shafts in tubes. Straight augers are like screws with disproportionately large threads, and flex augers are like screws with only threads. This allows transference about [wider] corners but at the cost of efficiency when sloping too steeply.
TRADITIONAL BELT CONVEYORS
We carry straight belts of numerous makes and custom-build them for special projects. In larger bulk applications, the belt often cups or wraps around the product for added security and option flexibility.
CORRUGATED BELT CONVEYORS
Corrugated belt conveyors have walled sides and deep segments allowing product to be carried both horizontally and up steep slopes.
When space allows, chain conveyors move product more quickly and gently than any other option. They can take corners, go up slopes, and handle abrasive and high-temperature products with minimal wear. Chain conveyors are also naturally resistant to messy product applications. Depending on the type of flight (paddle) chosen, the product can be conveyed up slopes as steep as 90°.
Roller conveyors, or gravity conveyors, are in-line rollers which allow gravity or momentum to carry product to its destination. They are typically preceeded and/or followed by traditional belt conveyors to control speed. We can source, customize, or fabricate roller conveyors for a wide range of applications.
Bucket elevators move product vertically without requiring large footprints. They’re most useful when multiple steps in a process are gravity-fed but share the same floor. Bucket elevators have been replaced by chain disks for many applications but remain the best solution for others.
SILOS & GRAIN BINS
Silos are available in many standard shapes, sizes, and materials, but can also be made-to-order. When silos are needed but space is an issue, we can help with zoning permissions and creative workarounds.
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. For specialty applications, hoist & trolleys and stainless construction is also an option.
