Application Review:
Tubular Drag Conveying System - Tire Manufacturer with Dust-Free Multiple Inlet System Handling Carbon Black

CHALLENGE

A major tire manufacturer needed to fit a material handling conveyor into a tight space, move the material (carbon black) from inlets and discharge it at two locations. In addition, the intermediate discharge had to be free of residual build-up, and the entire system dust free.

SOLUTION

Hapman provided a system using its totally enclosed and dust-free series 4000 tubular drag conveyor with a self-cleaning (pneumatically controlled) discharge gate.

RESULT

The conveyor fit into the designated space and accomplished the objectives of the manufacturer. Operation was able to be continuous without concern for dust.
