Cablevey Conveyors

New Research: Evaluating and Implementing New Conveyor Systems »


Powdered materials prevalent across industry sectors

Almost every industry has a powdered version of products or ingredients that will require transport throughout a production facility for further processing. This includes edible powders such as flour, sugar or protein concentrates and isolates in the food industry or powders for industrial use such as plastics or chemicals. One constant and pressing problem is dust due to its potential for combustion and its potential to contaminate materials. The consequences can be costly and hazardous.

Address dust concerns with tubular conveying

Convey powders securely and with confidence with Cablevey tubular drag conveyors. An enclosed dust conveyor system, such as the tubular cable conveyor from Cablevey, addresses concerns over dust containment for dust explosion prevention and to prevent contamination, for cleaner handling of powdered materials. The modular tubing system conveys powdered materials with discs attached to the central cable, pushing the materials spaced into segmented compartments similar to a string of small train cars. This mitigates dust and dramatically reduces the chance of contamination. It also facilitates portions when required for mixes or blended powders. Separate inlets allow powders to be deposited into the individual spaces or compartments for controlled transport of powdered mixes and blends.
