Gently convey barley, malt, and essential grains for breweries

Barley and malt, grains essential to the brewing industry, benefit from gentle transport as these grains can be delicate. An enclosed tubular drag conveyor can handle multiple inlets and discharges from various grain silos and cover the appropriate distance for the next processing stage. As a sealed system, the tubular drag conveyor drastically cuts back on dust and helps prevent product contamination. Tubular conveyors offer a hygienic option for breweries, able to handle different cleaning methods. In addition, the modular design of the Cablevey cable and disc conveyor systems offers flexibility for myriad configurations within an economical plant footprint to help preserve valuable floor space.
