Cable and chain tubular drag conveyors.

Following the acquisition of Dynamet of Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA last year, combined with a concurrent in-house development, two types of Tubular Drag Conveyors are the latest additions to Spiroflow's portfolio. So, today, they offer four types of conveyor: Flexible Screw, Aero Mechanical, Pneumatic/Vacuum and, now, Tubular Drag.

'Cableflow' Tubular Cable Drag Conveyors are in fact a development of their tried and tested Aero Mechanical Conveyors operating with reduced clearances and at reduced running speeds. 'Cableflow' conveyors are designed with gentle handling and installations requiring conveying in multiple planes in mind. They can transfer friable bulk products from single or multiple in-feed points to single or multiple discharge points with little or no damage. Good examples of where they have found particular favour is in the coffee industry, where they are used to convey coffee beans, and in the snack food industry, where they are used to move friable finished products.

The 'Dynaflow' Tubular Chain Drag Conveyor is also a mechanical drag conveyor system operating within the confines of a pipe-However, the discs that move material along the pipe are robust heavy duty discs connected by articulated metal links (chains) meaning that they are well suited to the most arduous of applications. The discs can be made from a variety of materials including steel and cast iron. This enables them to operate at temperatures up to 250[degrees]C.
