The unit features a high velocity vacuum fan that draws airborne dust from the operator's atmosphere onto cartridge filters. Automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning allows continuous, efficient operation; timer activated solenoid valves release short blasts of compressed plant air inside the filters causing dust build-up on outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper.
The conveyor moves material using high-strength polymer discs affixed to a stainless steel cable, that slide fragile materials within smooth stainless steel tubing, gently, quietly and dust-free, horizontally, vertically or at any incline. The discs and cable are driven by a wheel at one end of the circuit and put under tension by a wheel at the other end, and fully evacuate the conveyor of material.
The modular system can have single or multiple inlets and outlets, and convey
