The Cablevey Tubular Drag Conveyor is an enclosed mechanical conveyor that uses a cable-and-disc assembly to continuously move materials through a tube at high speeds. The speeds, however, can be adjusted on some systems to fit various applications.
Not to be confused with a traditional Aeromechanical Conveyor, a Cablevey Tubular Drag Conveyor handles material gently, so friable and other delicate materials can be transported without degradation. Blended materials can also be moved with very little segregation. It can also move foods and other materials that need to be kept sanitized.
Depending on individual applications, the conveying tubes can have diameters of 50mm, 100mm, 150mm or 200mm. The materials are transported to discharge points in enclosed conveying tubes, so harmful dust and toxic or flammable materials don’t escape into the environment. And the materials are protected from the atmosphere because they are completely sealed within the tube.
Cablevey conveyor systems can have a wide variety of configurations and options, so they are very flexible. The conveying systems are custom designed and can be straight or curved, laid out in various configurations including vertical, horizontal or angled parallel lines; a loop; or multiple-corner shapes. The drive unit provides power to move the cable-and-disc assembly through the conveying tubes and the tension turnaround unit maintains the proper cable tension.
Cablevey conveyors can include multiple inlets and outlets and can move material vertically, horizontally, around corners and at an angle so users save space, energy and money because they don’t need multiple conveyors. These systems can convey up to 35cu.m/hr.
Cablevey conveyors control dust, so money is saved on dust collection systems. In addition, there are no filters to clean and product degradation and separation are virtually eliminated.
Cablevey conveyors operate on low horsepower – 1 to 3.5kW motors that provide material transfer rates of less than .1 to 35cu.m/hr, so users save money on energy. They are quiet, so they reduce the noise level in a plant and they are self-cleaning, so they eliminate the build-up inside the tube.
Cablevey has prepared a report showing comparisons between the Cablevey Tubular Drag Conveyor and other common dry material conveying solutions, including Aeromechanical Conveyors, Bucket Elevators, Pneumatic Conveying Systems and traditional Tubular Drag Conveyors.
