At UniTrak, we help processors to surmount the dusting challenges associated with conveying powders with our Powderflight™ Aeromechanical conveyor and two bucket conveyor designs: TipTrak™ PEC and TipTrak™ Monocoque. All three of these equipment designs can successfully handle dusting challenges.
What it means to you
In many applications, preventing, containing or otherwise minimizing dust is a primary concern. From food to chemical and hazardous material applications, dust can cause negative consequences if not properly addressed. Airborne materials can cause contamination, health and other safety risks, as well as leading to more frequent maintenance needs. Tailoring the proper equipment to reduce or eliminate dust can make the difference.
Our entire equipment lineup can be tailored to handle dusty materials and prevent contamination and safety risks. We have solutions for varying degrees of dust control and over 45 years of successfully doing so!
How we've got it handled
TipTrak Bucket Elevator
For nearly 50 years, the TipTrak™ bucket elevator has been the number one choice for food and chemical processing companies to elevate their value added powders and bulk products. The TipTrak™ bucket elevator provides the gentlest handling, least spillage, lowest maintenance, and quietest operation of any bucket conveyor system.
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.
