A conveyor system was required to move a corrosive chemical product along production lines.
The scheme consists of three reversible horizontal troughed belt conveyors, which are set to convey at 1,832KGs per hour and two horizontal troughed belt conveyors at 3,651KGs per hour. The factory produces Sicilia Gel, used as a desiccant to combat condensation, and the Gough Conveyor System transports the product in its production from powdered chemicals to the gelation stage of the process.
Results & Conclusions:
The troughed belt offers extra throughput capacities compared to flat bed conveyors. The Gough Troughed Conveyors are fast, efficient conveyors to transport materials in wet or sticky conditions with the trough belt shape contains materials making them ideal for aggregates, glass, plastics , soil, powdered chemicals, and recyclables.
