The Elevator is monitored by belt alignment and rotation sensors ensuring safety and performance criteria are met. Options for explosion suppression systems to be incorporated ensuring site safety for explosive materials.
Airglide Conveyor (Air Supported Belt Conveyor), has a fully enclosed carrying compartment and sealed casing that is both weather proof and meets food sealing standards.
The Airglide's smooth transition is particularly effective in maintaining the qualities of white sugar such as product size and aeration
The Airglide uses a cushion of air to allow the belt to glide along the troughed conveyor bed plate, this provides significant benefits over conventional trough belt conveyors where the belt sags between rollers, that creates a natural movement in the product as it rises and falls between the sections. This causes the material to move and wear against itself.
