Conveying dried chopped fiberglass is not without its challenges. The product is friable and tends to accumulate static charge when moved or handled. In addition, the light nature of the product makes it susceptible to spillage as it is transported on a conveyor.
To help Johns Manville select the right conveyor for the job, UniTrak conducted extensive testing of the Johns Manville fiberglass material at its product test facility. This testing showed that TipTrak™ S-5 PEC bucket elevators were an ideal equipment choice for assuring product integrity, preventing spillage and static charge buildup, while achieving the desired throughput rates.
