Cablevey® Conveyors Frozen Food Conveyor Systems

If you’re in the frozen food industry, you know how important effective conveyance systems are. Whether you need to transport frozen peas, carrots, corn, pinto beans, or any other frozen food product, using a high-quality frozen food conveyor is key to keeping your production running smoothly.

Cablevey® Conveyors Frozen Food Conveyor Systems are suitable for moving all sorts of food batch ingredients and finished products through all stages of food processing, all the way to packaging. We offer tubular cable and disc conveyor systems designed to provide optimum performance in your particular application.

Flexible Design

Our tubular cable and disc conveyor systems are modularly designed to offer flexibility for a wide range of applications. Component parts come in a variety of sizes, tube diameters, and tube materials that fit even production plants with tight floor space.

We also offer a full range of feeders, cleaning, and transfer system components. No matter what your processing facility layout is, we have the frozen food conveyor solution for you.

Custom Solutions

Our frozen food material handling equipment for production facilities, large to small, can be found in dozens of countries around the world.

Every Cablevey frozen food conveyor system is custom-specified by our engineering department. This ensures that all systems are optimized to fit our clients’ needs.

Design considerations typically include questions such as how much material can be moved without breakage, how far, how high, and how fast you need to move the materials, and similar. The configuration and available space within processing environments are also taken into consideration.

The bottom line is that our engineers and our extensive library of system parts can provide a solution for just about any frozen food conveyor movement needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a tubular cable and disc conveyor system move raw materials other than frozen vegetables?

Yes. Our frozen food conveyor systems are designed to move frozen vegetable ingredients, frozen fruit, and frozen meat, such as frozen chicken strips.

Are cable and tube frozen food conveyor systems safe and sanitary?
Yes. The enclosed tube environment keeps your materials clean, free of contaminants, and safe while in transit. Enclosed tubes also serve to keep wastage low and your plant clean.
How is a tube conveying system cleaned?
Wet cleaning, dry, and in-line cleaning options are available for the Cablevey conveying equipment. As part of our engineering and service process, we will work with you to determine the best cleaning solution for your needs and train you on how to use specified equipment.
CLEARVEY CONVEYORS

Product:

Frozen peas, diced carrots, cut corn, and pinto beans.

Application:

Freezer Tunnel Discharge Conveyor

Frozen Carrots“Clearvey” 300 Series / 6” clear plastic tubing; One (1) inlet, one (1) pneumatic discharge, one (1) clean-out box, and drive unit with discharge extension chute. Product introduced from freezer tunnel belt conveyor, and then dropped into our inlet and conveyed approximately 90 feet to designated discharge points. The product is discharged into UBC’s (Universal Bulk Containers) and stored in cold storage (AMERICOLD), waiting for repackaging to CPG consumers. Conveyor is “Wet-Cleaned” and ready for ATP “Swab-Test” testing after each shift.

 

Commissioned:

The system was commissioned by Cablevey Conveyors May 21st, 2020 .

The Cablevey Conveyor’s Advantage

The customer’s previous conveyor technology being used were PD (Positive Displacement) pneumatic conveyors, however, due to the inherent high temperatures of compressed air, “After Coolers” (Heat Exchangers) are used just after the blower to cool down the temperature to allow for the product to be conveyed while minimizing potential heat increases. This is expensive and costly to operate with coolant recharging and general maintenance of the additional equipment.

All PD pneumatics require a Filter Receiver to operate which also creates its own issues with product buildup around the tangential inlet that needs constant cleaning to try and maintain the sanitary level compliances.

This also enlarges the equipment “Footprint” which can minimize the operator access area during maintenance requirements. Most of the PD systems for these operations require a minimum of 25hp motors, sometimes up to 45hp. These systems normally operate around the clock for six months of the year, which also increases costs through higher energy use.

This particular location is in operation twelve months of the year, however, full processing operation lasts approximately six (6) months, right after the first harvest from June to November. During this time 180 million pounds of vegetables are processed.

Cablevey Conveyor eliminates the high energy costs by utilizing a 5hp gear motor, significantly reduces potential product degradation, increases sanitary compliance via the enclosed tubing, smaller “Footprint” and “CLEAR VISIBILITY” of the product during the conveying process. This was a huge plus factor for the QA personnel at this facility.
