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.
TRADITIONAL BELT CONVEYORS
We carry straight belts of numerous makes and custom-build them for special projects. They can be made of a wide range of materials and fitted with custom reject systems.
CORRUGATED BELT CONVEYORS
Corrugated belt conveyors have walled sides and deep segments allowing for greater capacity and for product to be carried up steeper slopes.
The spines on crossbelts provide traction up steep slopes. Crossbelts often have open sides, allowing product to be rejected or sorted cross-wise, as the name implies.
U-Belt conveyors cup or wrap around product. Most commonly used for outdoor applications, this allows product to be taken up slopes or over uneven terrain at high speeds without spilling.
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. Chains are preferred over cables because they are cheaper and don’t wind up over time. Learn More Here
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.
Pneumatic systems can move product upwards of 1000 ft/min, but are rough on product and requires discharge gates out of silos and bins to allow for pressure differentials. Whether dense or dilute phase will be determined by your product’s density, abrasiveness, consistency, and resiliency, so talk to one of our experts before considering this option.
When space allows, chain conveyors move product more quickly and gently than other options. They can take corners, go up slopes, and handle abrasive and high-temperature products with minimal wear. 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 preceded 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.
Work bins provide a convenient place to stage or work with product between processing steps. They are usually custom-made and can be stainless, carbon, cylindrical, or cubic.
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.
SILOS & GRAIN BINS
Silos are available in many standard shapes, sizes, and materials, but can also be made-to-order with custom discharge gates. When silos are needed but space is an issue, we can help with zoning permissions and creative workarounds.
