The efficient conveying of grain and malted
grains is an important aspect of routine operation for many maltsters and
distillers. As a result, choosing the right conveyor design is a crucial factor
to maximise output and return on investment. Guttridge analyses four conveyor
designs in turn and examines how they have each earned their rightful place in
these industry. All types are able to start under load, enabling maintenance
with minimal loss of throughput and rapid restart. In addition, they are all available certified
for installation in ATEX zones.
for vertical transportation of dry or wet grains.
operation with minimal product drag provides the most energy efficient means of
elevating product available.
monitoring preserves machine health, whilst reducing the need for manual
checking and providing protection against source of dust explosion ignition.
services and trouble free when correctly maintained adds considerable value
over long term use.
stand and cleaning slide arrangement available to facilitate easy clean-down as
well as our unique self-clean floating boot arrangement.
for both vertical and horizontal transport of dry grains and grist.
small cross section and run full, which allows no areas for dusty or explosive
atmospheres to develop.
incorporate multiple bends to offer maximum suitability for planning in.
casing design enables use where there are space restrictions.
flights normally fitted to
- minimise product residue.
for both wet and dry side applications.
design minimises product spillages and dust control issues.
the movement of individual grains, thereby limiting the potential for damage.
over relatively long run lengths, reducing the need for multiple machines to
transport material over significant distances.
efficient operation and self-clean design.
for horizontal or inclined material transport in dry and wet side operation.
low capital and maintenance costs on short machines without hanger bearings.
be fitted with mesh lids for easy manual wash down or supplied with integral
sprays for automatic cleaning to prevent wet, germinating grains being left in the machine compromising product quality and efficient operation.
