Skip hoist conveyor transfers each batch from mixer to mill or dump extruder.
The skip hoist design is said to provide an efficient use of floor space and can run within the existing batch cycle time, according to the company. The skip hoist bucket is designed for a clean transfer of the material from the mixer to the extruder throat.
The skip hoist assembly includes an open top steel carrier bucket with chrome plated working surfaces; a bucket carriage mounted on four sealed wheels; an inclined track weldment with side guards and legs; an AC gearmotor with parallel motor chains for lifting/ lowering the carriage and bucket; end of travel proximity switches; safety and containment screens; push-button station raise, lower, stop and e-stop with wiring; and controls to integrate it with the mixer interface.
Skip hoist conveyor models are available for mixer sizes from 20 liters to 110 liters. Custom designs can be readily provided.
