Cable & Tube Conveyor Uses

Move Just About Anything with Cable & Tube Conveyors

Tube Conveyor Uses

Cablevey tube conveyor uses have spanned the globe to convey almost 1,000 types of materials in over 65 countries. Our equipment services many of the largest food processing companies in both the United States and abroad. Whether it’s coffee, breakfast cereals, oats or cat treats these industry giants have sought out Cablevey to move their materials in the safest and most efficient way possible.

Common Material Types

Cable and tube conveyor uses can include moving just about anything that will fit into a tube. But the most common applications of cable and tube conveyor technology generally fall into one of these categories:

  • Small and Powered Materials: enclosed tube conveyors are ideal for materials that risk being blown away. This results in efficient movement and reduced wastage of materials.
  • Sanitary Materials: enclosed tube conveyors are also an ideal way to keep materials like food product clean and sanitary. Enclosed systems also keep your plant from being contaminated by materials.
  • Toxic Materials: enclosed tube conveyors are also useful to keep your materials from contaminating your production facility.
  • Delicate Materials: cable and tube conveyors offer small “bucket” movement as a gentle way to move large volumes of product. Once materials are loaded between the discs in a tune, they are safe for runs including high-speed and long distances.

Modular Component Design

To meet the needs of the many uses noted above, our cable and tube conveyor systems are modularly designed to offer flexibility for wide-ranging applications. Component parts come in a variety of sizes, tube diameters, and tube materials. We also offer a full range of feeders, cleaning, and transfer system components.

Custom Solutions

Each and every system is custom specified through our engineering department. This ensures that all systems are optimized to client needs. Design considerations typically include how much can be moved without breakage, how far, how high, and how fast you need to move materials. The configuration and available space within processing environments are also taken into consideration. Bottom line, our engineers, and library of system components can solve just about any material movement needs with cable and tube conveyor systems.
