A conveyor designed to handle hazardous materials

By Chemical Engineering |

Luxme International

This company’s Tubular Chain Conveyor (photo) reliably contains dusty and hazardous materials, safeguarding workers at the same time as protecting the conveyed material from external influences. It is also resistant against internal pressure buildup and helps to contain propagating flame, making it suitable for handling potentially explosive chemicals. By using a low-horsepower motor, energy consumption is considerably less than traditional pneumatic conveyors. Constructed from chemical-grade stainless steel and other FDA-approved components, the conveyor comprises a fixed drive and tension assembly, which automatically tensions the chain continuously during the process and regulates it according to friction, product flow and variation in atmospheric or product temperature. — Luxme International Ltd., Brossard, Canada
