Our reputation was built on gently handling our customers’ products. We have the equipment technology you need to convey friable materials without breakage or degradation.

What it
means to you

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.
For over 45 years, UniTrak has been committed to perfecting the smoothest ride possible for your product. In particular, our TipTrak™ bucket conveyor line has been specifically designed for the gentle handling of a wide variety of bulk materials, while our Powderflight aeromechanical conveyors are well suited for gently conveying powders and granules.Examples of friable materials that our equipment handles include:
