Tubular conveying serves a broad range of industries
Conveyor systems are ubiquitous in industrial operations, with multiple lines and conveyor types operating simultaneously under the same roof. Yet not all conveyor systems are the same. Specific applications reap a more significant benefit from a conveyor that supplies a mode of transport and helps preserve product integrity for friable materials, supplies a greater degree of safety, conserves space, eases maintenance, and saves energy. The tubular drag conveying system from Cablevey supplies all of those features and more.
Tubular cable systems supply numerous advantages
The modular design of our cable and disc conveyor systems offers flexibility for myriad configurations within an economical plant footprint to help preserve valuable floor space. A minimal number of parts in various sizes, tube diameters, and tube materials such as stainless steel and polycarbonate (clear) tubing, combine to expand system layout potential in terms of direction changes or multiple inlets/outlets.
Cablevey conveyors provide an ideal means of transport for a broad range of industrial materials including powders, biomass, plastics, pellets, hemp, and more. Tubular cable systems have low energy consumption with motors typically running at 5 HP. The modular design offers maintenance crews removable parts for easy maintenance. And there is no system gentler on friable materials than the tubular drag-style conveyor to eliminate material degradation. The enclosed system design drastically reduces dust for safer and more sanitary, industrial environments.

Find out how to preserve product integrity of delicate or challenging materials by weighing the options among conveying technologies.
Low impact installation
The modular design lends the tubular drag conveyor immense flexibility and versatility for installation or upgrades as needed. Fits within floor space limitations, up (ascending) and down (descending) inclines or around corners (sweeps at 45, 60 and 90-degree angles).
Quiet & energy efficient
The engineered design requires lower horsepower motors, for lower energy requirements and quiet operations.
Tubular drag style conveyors, designed to require simple pneumatic tensioning for the cables, require very little maintenance.
Cablevey Conveyors Easily Integrate into Production Facilities of All Types
Learn how Cablevey tubular conveying systems integrate into almost any type processing system, adapting to limited spaces and plant footprints, or traveling between floors and even buildings, depending on system requirements. System design offers incredible flexibility.
