State Of Conveying 2023 Report
In the modern rapidly advancing industrial landscape, there is a growing need for efficient, durable, and sustainable bulk material handling equipment. Our plastic conveyor system is a state-of-the-art innovation that will redefine your method of material transportation. Our tubular drag industrial conveyor belt systems are tailored to meet the unique needs of every client, whether it’s plastic material handling, food, or pharmaceuticals.
The plastics industry has a vast array of products and plays a vital role in numerous sectors, and thus it demands innovations that can enhance its efficiency, reduce costs and increase productivity. While pneumatic conveyor systems have already been present in the industry, in recent years, tubular drag conveyors have emerged as a much-needed innovation. They play a significant role in modernizing processes and moving the plastics industry forward.
Conveyor systems have revolutionized and redefined the standards for efficient and quality-driven material handling. Their unique design ensures gentle and consistent material transportation, preserving the integrity of delicate plastic granules and powders. Furthermore, these conveyors, with their enclosed nature, promote a contamination-free environment, ensuring that the purity of plastic materials remains uncompromised. Their streamlined structure demands minimal maintenance, paving the way for cost-effective operations and reduced downtime.
Unlike a conventional conveyor belt system, a tubular drag conveyor stands out with several benefits, including versatility and safety. Their key features include the following:
By reducing potential spillage, the work environment becomes safer, decreasing possible workplace hazards.
The Ultimate Guide to Enclosed Tubular Drag Cable and Disc Conveyors
The global plastics market is valued at more than 580 billion US dollars and still growing due to plastic’s flexibility, convenience, and price point. Raw materials can run the gamut from powdered plastic to flakes, fluff, and pellets. The first focus with plastics is on efficient transportation, but in addition, dust containment is particularly important when conveying these raw materials for further processing. Plastic dust can be hazardous because it can generate volatile or flammable gases that react and combust.
Improve plastics transport efficiencies and avoid dust, plastic accumulation, and waste with tubular conveying from Cablevey. Cablevey tubular conveyors can help plastic processors avoid issues common with other types of conveying systems. The tubular drag conveying system moves plastics of all kinds, including regrind, without the friction or heat often associated with other conveyors. This alleviates elastic separation when plastics heat up during the production process and subsequently melt and accumulate within the machinery. The enclosed tubular system also mitigates dust and eliminates contamination potential.
To ensure your processes run smoothly and safely, you need to understand both the material you are handling and the belt conveyor system. Although plastics are resilient, conveying such materials come with its own set of unique issues. One of the more prominent risks include the potential for breakage and fire hazard. Plastics, especially in small forms like pellets, can generate static electricity, making them stick to conveyors and potentially causing fire risks. Moreover, plastics can break easily or even melt if the conveyor gets too hot, compromising their quality.
In industries where plastics touch our food or bodies, like in food packaging or medical devices, keeping the conveyor super clean is vital to avoid contamination. At the same time, many factories have limited space, making it challenging to fit efficient conveyor systems. Also, conveyor systems need to be fast and handle large volumes, but they also need to be safe.
When it comes to the complexities of conveying plastics, Cablevey Conveyors has designed tubular drag conveyors to effectively address and overcome many of the industry’s inherent challenges. Here is how our design helps:
In essence, Cablevey Conveyors, through our innovative approach, has optimized the tubular drag conveyors to meet the unique challenges of conveying plastic materials. By focusing on efficiency, safety, and cost-effectiveness, we offer a solution tailored to your specific needs.
