It conducts a harmonious blend of precision engineering and automated finesse, redefining the way we handle and process peanuts. Dive into the dynamics of a conveyor system that’s redefining the standards of peanut processing and offering unparalleled advantages for businesses worldwide.

What Are Tubular Drag Conveying Systems?

Tubular drag conveying systems are a type of mechanical conveying system used to transport bulk materials from one location to another. Unlike some other conveying methods, these systems transport materials gently, ensuring minimal degradation, which is especially important for delicate products. Here’s a brief overview:

  • Design and mechanism – Tubular drag conveyors consist of a closed-loop tube or a series of tubes. Within this tube is a chain or cable with discs (also called flights) attached at regular intervals. As the chain or cable moves through the tube, the attached discs drag the material along with it.
  • Operation – The system operates at relatively low speeds, which helps in the gentle handling of the material. The conveyor can move materials horizontally, vertically, or at any angle, even around corners, making it versatile in navigating complex layouts.
  • Applications – Tubular drag conveying systems are used in various industries, including food processing, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and more. They’re particularly beneficial in situations where product degradation or dust generation must be minimized.

Explore the Benefits Cablevey's Peanut Conveyor Offer

Beyond the traditional conveyor belt system, Cablevey stands out, revolutionizing the realm of an industrial conveyor belt. This being said, let’s check out what the Cablevey system will offer you:

  • Ensures safety of materials – Safely transports fragile and brittle materials throughout every production stage. With our unique cable and tube conveyor system, we prioritize maintaining the original quality of products, reducing potential damage and wastage.
  • Sealed, clean, and dust-free setting – Our sealed tube conveyors enhance facility safety and cleanliness, significantly diminishing dust and ensuring the contents remain uncontaminated.
  • Minimal maintenance – Designed with a tubular drag approach, our conveyors utilize straightforward pneumatic tensioning for cables, resulting in minimal maintenance needs.

Peanuts Are a Sustainable Source of Plant-Based Protein

The humble peanut has become one of the most ubiquitous legume family members. It is no surprise that peanuts are inexpensive, nutritious, and sustainable. It’s also an eco-friendly crop that produces an environmentally friendly protein source.

In food applications, peanuts have proven their versatility through an ability to carry bold seasonings and flavors, especially in snack foods, which have great appeal for Millennial and Gen Z consumers seeking adventure through food. Even among nut butter, peanut butter reigns as the most popular variety, with Americans downing close to 700 million pounds of it every year.

Product Integrity Is Vital for Snacking Peanuts

Peanuts, however, can be a challenging product to transport because they can be easily damaged. Product integrity might not matter as much for nuts ground into peanut butter. However, many other applications in snacking or baking place a premium on product integrity and part identity, leaving a whole or half nut as the desired outcome. 

Luckily, Cablevey, besides the belt conveyor system, offers suitable systems for moving unshelled peanuts, shelled peanuts, dry roasted peanuts, chopped peanuts, peanut powder, and even peanut butter. No matter what form your peanuts are in, our equipment can move your material in a gentle and sanitary manner. Our peanut conveyors can be utilized throughout the peanut processing stream, from initial harvest through roasting, grinding, or packaging.

From Tubular Enclosed System to a Conveyor Belt for a Warehouse

The enclosed tubular conveyor protects peanuts and peanut products until the final processing or packaging step, regardless of distance, height, or desired throughput. On the other end of this spectrum, we have the conveyor belt for warehouse applications. These belts are synonymous with efficiency, versatility, and robustness. 

Both these systems, while differing in their design and primary applications, serve the overarching purpose of optimizing material flow, reducing manual handling, and enhancing overall operational efficiency in their respective environments.

Check the Cablevey Conveyor Systems for Nut Transportation

A conveyor belt for food plays a crucial role in the automation of many processes in various industries, including the processing and packaging of nuts. When dealing with nuts, it’s important to choose conveyors that are gentle to prevent damage and maintain product quality. Here are some common types of conveyors used for moving nuts:

Belt Conveyors

These are perhaps the most common type of conveyors. They consist of a continuous belt looped over pulleys at either end. For nuts, flat or troughed belts can be used to ensure they don’t fall off. Belt conveyors are versatile and can move nuts over short or long distances.

Chain conveyors enclose materials to keep them safe during transport. They can move materials in any direction and have multiple inlets and discharges. They are similar to drag cable conveyors, except that a chain is used to move the material along.

Aero-mechanical conveyors are often referred to as “rope and disc” conveyors. The system consists of several evenly spaced discs attached to a wire rope. The rope and discs travel at high speed in a continuous loop within steel tubes. The material moves due to the airstream that is produced by the movement of the rope and discs at high speeds.

These use air pressure or vacuum to transport nuts through tubes or ducts. Pneumatic conveyors are especially useful in plants where there’s a need to move nuts over long distances without damage.
