Cable & Tubular Drag Conveyor Systems
Cablevey tubular drag conveyor systems are designed to move materials in a safe, clean and efficient manner. Our cable and tube conveyors are ideal for moving materials and mixes in a dust-free, contamination-free way. And they’re ideal for conveying delicate bulk materials through all phases of the production and packaging processes.
How It Works
Our cable and tube conveyor technology features the combination of conveyance tubes with cables and discs attached at set intervals. This design serves to gently handle materials from inlet to discharge by holding materials between the discs within an enclosed tube. Materials are not blown about or forced around sweeps. They’re carried without bumping, battering, stress or friction. Breakage is thereby kept to a minimum. For fragile materials safe handling means the difference between profitability and loss.
We have installed tubular drag conveyor systems in over 65 countries around the world to move nearly 1,000 different types of materials. Whether you’re a food processor, pharmaceutical company or industrial business, Cablevey Conveyors can provide you the right conveying system for your needs and plant configuration. Our tubular drag technology systems are highly customizable and offer flexible layouts.
Our 4″ (101.6mm) diameter cable conveyors are commonly used to convey brown-skin almonds, whole bean roasted coffee and a variety of breakfast cereals from flakes to rice puffs. Systems are customizable to move just about anything. These cable conveyors are the go-to conveyor workhorse systems for most applications. Our systems are designed to operate on multiple planes such as feeding silos or moving materials from floor to mezzanine.
With tube conveyor systems, you can expect:
- Gentle material handling
- Enclosed dust-free environment
- Easy maintenance
Depending upon the bulk density of materials, our 4″ systems are rated to move up to:
- 525 Ft³ (14.87 M³)/hour
- 22,000 pounds/hour
