|Our latest success story covers a powered belt conveyor, gravity roller conveyor and controls for a major Tea and Coffee importer and blender.
Very heavy bags of coffee beans, up to 75kg each, need to be loaded into a hopper/bucket elevator feeding a new blending plant. For improved handling efficiency and safety reasons an inclined mobile powered belt conveyor has now been installed. The conveyor carries the heavy bags up to approx. 1,500 mm height onto a short length of gravity roller conveyor. One roller has been removed to provide space for the operator to cut the bags to release the beans into the feed hopper below.
Both conveyors are readily movable to allow easy access to the hopper/elevator when needed. Please refer to the pictures of the installed unit.
