We previously reported on several new projects involving overhead cable conveyors – click on Products and then Overhead Conveyors for more details. One of these projects is a small scale Pilot Plant for the vertical growing of speciality salad products in a controlled environment. The trials are very encouraging with considerable interest being generated especially within the restaurant food supply chain. A large scale facility is now being considered. The overhead cable conveyor moves carriers and trays for growing the product installed in a specially designed building with a controlled environment. The following pictures show the carriers and trays suspended from the overhead cable conveyor within the pilot trial unit.
