Cookies - Fragile Materials

Ensuring product integrity as it travels from one process to another is often one of the biggest challenges faced in bulk material conveying. Whether it is in the food or chemical industries, customers need their product to have a damage-free ride. Gentle handling of product is especially critical when it is necessary to convey friable and fragile materials and minimize product degradation or damage.
