Tubular Drag Conveyors

Technical Details: Cableflow® Cable Drag Conveyors

Cableflow Tubular Cable Drag Conveyors are a further development of our best in class Aeroflow aero mechanical conveyors operating with reduced clearances and at reduced running speeds. Cableflow conveyors are designed for gentle material handling and for conveying in multiple planes. They can provide complete material batch transfer of bulk products from single or multiple in-feed points to single or multiple discharge points with little or no damage.

Cableflow conveyors are offered with our optional Dynamic Automatic Cable Tensioning system. This patented cable tensioning system maximizes cable life and minimizes maintenance - a key advantage over other cable driven conveyors in the industry.

Cable discs are manufactured from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW) and are suitable for temperatures up to 176°F (80°C).

Complex Cableflow Conveying Systems

Cableflow conveyors are ideal for conveying high volumes of fragile product to process or packaging.

The system shown below allows a major coffee producer to move 10,000 lbs/hr (4,535kg/hr) of 5 different blends of coffee from silos to a high-speed packaging system.
