The idea behind this article is to help you in your research of tubular cable drag conveyors. Here at Spiroflow, we place an emphasis on customer education and buyer satisfaction above everything else. This is why you’ll see the names of our competitors in articles like this one.

Defining a Cable Drag Conveyor

I’m talking about conveyors that have been used throughout a range of industries for decades. A cable drag conveyor is mechanically driven inside a totally enclosed tube. It uses a cable and disc assembly to gently drag a variety of materials from an inlet point to an outlet point. These conveyors can have more than one inlet and outlet.

Here’s What We Can Offer You

Like I mentioned at the top of this article, Spiroflow is here to help. I hope you can rely on us to be your resource for not only cable drag conveying solutions but also anything to do with bulk material handling.

Spiroflow was founded more than 45 years ago with the development of the flexible screw conveyor. As time went on, Spiroflow evolved. Today, we have a wide range of bulk material conveying equipment. We can offer a variety of bulk bag filling and discharging equipment. We also offer control system integration solutions through our Spiroflow Automation Solutions business division. Our team is responsible for thousands of installations all over the world.

Our cable drag conveyors are called Cableflow® cable drag conveyors. The cable (rope) inside the conveyor tends to stretch over time. In order to make things easier for processors, we developed and patented an auto-tensioning system. It’s called a DART (dynamic automatic rope tensioning) system. Pairing a DART with a Cableflow will keep the conveyor running longer and your maintenance costs lower.
