Conveying Peanuts

 

Conveying peanuts

Our peanut conveying systems can be used on all types of peanuts whether they are raw, in the shell or in a powder and can be used in any part of the production process. Most peanut suppliers are looking for a safe method of conveying peanuts which will not damage the product and create dust. One of our best conveyors for achieving this is the cable drag conveyor.

The cable drag conveyor carries the peanuts alongside high molecular polyurethane discs and drags them through the tube. This conveyor offers dust-tight protection and is one of the most gentle applications so your peanuts will arrive at the roasting or washing process with minimal damage.
