Almond Processor Achieves Gentle Conveyance with an Equipment Upgrade

An almond processor in California needed a gentle conveying system that would reduce breakage and loss of high-value yet delicate almonds. Other requirements included an enclosed system to help reduce dust, with multiple inlet/discharge capabilities, that could fit within limited available space. Both aeromechanical and pneumatic conveyors resulted in an unacceptable level of damage to the nuts. A tubular cable conveyer from Cablevey fulfilled all of the almond processor’s parameters, improving cleanliness and boosting production.
