New: Compact chain conveyor Compact chain conveyor for 0 to 20 m3 per hour
The expense involved in explosion-proofing bucket elevators can sometimes exceed the purchase price of the conveying system itself by up to a factor of three. So Poeth Solids Processing, based in Tegelen in the Netherlands, developed the cost-saving Z-Conveyor to eliminate the need for extra investment in ATEX explosion-proofing. The new, explosion-proof Mini Z-Conveyor for gently transporting 0 to 20 m³ of powders, grains or granules per hour is Poeth’s latest development of this concept. The Mini Z-Conveyor features compact design and is especially suitable for indoor use.
Explosion-proof conveying prevents high costs for safety equipment
Dry, organic materials can generate dust that is explosive by nature. This risk is particularly acute when these products are transported at speeds of more than 1 m/s. Bucket elevators are an excellent solution when products have to be transported vertically. However, these systems only operate effectively at speeds above 2 m/s.
