Tubular Drag Conveyors

Technical Details: Cableflow® Cable Drag Conveyors

Cableflow Tubular Cable Drag Conveyors

Cableflow Tubular Cable Drag Conveyors are in fact a development of our tried and tested Aero-Mechanical Conveyors operating with reduced clearances and at reduced running speeds. Cableflow conveyors are designed for gentle material handling and for conveying in multiple planes. They provide complete material batch transfer of bulk products from single or multiple in-feed points to single or multiple discharge points with little or no damage.

Because they are derived from our Aero-Mechanical Conveyors, they enjoy the option to have our patented DART (Dynamic Automatic Rope Tensioner) rope tensioning system for maximum rope life and minimum maintenance. This is a key advantage over competitor's cable driven conveyors.

Cable discs are manufactured from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and are suitable for temperatures up to 176°F (80°C).

Complex Cableflow Conveying Systems

Cableflow conveyors are ideal for conveying high volumes of friable product to process or packaging.

The system shown below allows a major coffee producer to move 10,000 lbs/hr of 5 different blends of coffee from silos to a high speed packaging system.
