INDUSTRIAL Conveying Australia has released the Spiral Conveyor. It is suitable for heavy or light industrial products and uses its corkscrew configuration to move product up or down between floors. The system can be built to a precise user-specific travel length and height.
The product is suitable for the curing process of moulded products. Where chemicals are used, wash down is fast and simple. Units are suitable for cooling and drying applications in controlled temperatures.
The Spiral Conveyors allow precise set up of travel speeds so that each product arrives at the appropriate manufacturing process at exactly the right temperature and physical condition. This travel speed is set in relation to temperature-controlled drying and cooling times. A company does not have to specifically store product on shelving or massive bench tops while waiting for the curing process to finish.
Operating temperatures range from -40ºC to 250ºC. It also works efficiently in humidity from completely saturated to of dry. Stainless units can be fitted for hygienic wash downs. The conveyors have a controlled slope for smooth transfer. They are designed to suit individual products, and can be assembled on site as gravity or powered systems. They are suitable for inline accumulation.
The system is modular in design and is quickly and easily installed regardless of the shape and size of premises. A first-in first-out configuration is possible. This allows different products to run at different speeds for different running times.
