Nut Conveyor Systems

Nuts and nutmeats are experiencing a new wave of popularity driven by consumers investing in healthier and immunity-boosting food products. Nuts supply protein, fiber, and a host of vitamins and antioxidants from a plant-based source, attracting consumers seeking more sustainable foods. In addition, nuts fit into many trending diet plans, including both paleo and keto. This adds up to an anticipated CAGR of approximately 5% for the nuts and seeds market through 2028.

Preserve product integrity of nuts for quality purposes

Nuts are brittle and sensitive to motion and free fall, a common occurrence with certain styles of conveying. Gentle tubular drag conveyors successfully and swiftly transport fragile products such as nuts and nut products throughout every stage of the manufacturing process, including sorting, roasting, chopping, and packaging. Our conveyors are designed to handle a wide range of nuts such as almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, Macadamia nuts, peanuts, pine nuts, pistachios, and walnuts, and more, in all forms, from whole nuts to slices, slivers, or ground nuts and flours. Tubular cable and disc conveyor systems are gentle on both raw and processed materials to minimize material breakage and maintain high levels of product quality. Preserve nut product integrity and its value with a tubular disc cable conveyor from Cablevey.
