Abrasive

Conveying abrasive materials requires equipment that is durable and will stand up to increased wear and tear. Our entire equipment lineup can be adapted and tailored to provide the extra durability you need when conveying abrasive materials.

What it
means to you

Abrasive materials are very hard on conveying equipment – by their very nature, these materials abrade and wear equipment components and systems far more than other substances. If you are conveying abrasive materials, the good news is that you can minimize the effects  by choosing equipment that features wear-resistant components.
Our entire equipment lineup can be tailored to handle your abrasive materials conveying needs. In addition, we also offer a material test and analysis service to help determine how best to handle your abrasive materials challenges. Examples of abrasive materials that our equipment handles includes the following:

  • Powderflight Aeromechanical Conveyor

    Powderflight Aeromechanical Conveyor

    Powderflight aeromechanical conveyors operate on a simple principle. Within a steel tube, a wire rope with evenly spaced discs travels at high speed, running in sprockets at each end of the conveyor. As material is fed in, the air stream aerates or fluidizes it and carries it to the outlet, where it is discharged by centrifugal force.
