Sanitary Conveying to Higher Levels
March 14, 2012
Depending on the product and type of application, scoop elevators can be more economical than bucket systems. Scoop flight conveyors are normally lower in maintenance than bucket systems, thus ensuring more up-time for your line.
The scoop elevator, shown in the photo, was used to elevate wrapped candy from a wrapping area to a weigh scale bagging area. A stainless steel system, the elevator was designed for wipe-down sanitation. The Lexan guards, which prevent product dropping, are removable for cleaning with no tools required.
Indexing conveyors and scoop elevating conveyors are engineered for the application. Several units have been built for candy manufacturers ranging from 10 feet to 18 feet tall, at speeds of 60 – 80 feet per minute.
