Vibratory Spiral Elevators are vertically aligned oscillating conveyors, which are increasingly being used in production lines and processes to elevate or softly de-elevate material/product.
Its use is becoming one of the standard solutions for bulk material handling in numerous industrial sectors where space is restricted .
Due to a small horizontal footprint and large travel distance, Vibratory Spiral Elevators are often used to either cool or in some cases heat material/product. To further increase it's cooling or heating ability holes can be added to the central tube and cold (or hot, depending on process) air can be passed through to assist the material/product to reach desired temperatures.
Due to their design , spiral elevators allow for easy access for cleaning and sterilisation purposes.
Spirals can be totally enclosed i.e. when handling very fine powders.
Gentle handling characteristics make them suitable for most products/materials.
VPC- Systems Spiral elevators are very low maintenance, very reliable and built to last offering trouble free production for years to come.
Due to the diversity of products/materials and their properties, the design is almost always project-related, whereby standardised gradations of the helical diameters are taken into account to implement functional features to suit the application.
Twin track spirals are available.
Spirals can be made in stainless steel or mild steel.
