Heavy Chemical Conveying and Elevating System

Heavy Chemical Conveying and Elevating System

The Task:

A chemicals company in Cheshire required a conveyor to move bentonite from a ground floor production area to the second floor.

There was a restricted amount of space available in an already crowded factory floor, therefore a conveyor was required that took up minimal space whilst maintaining high throughputs.


The Solution:

Gough supplied a Swinglink Bucket Elevator for the task, with a throughput of 16 tonnes per hour. The 12m in height bucket elevator included stainless steel, heavy duty chain and dust extraction spigots built into the casing. The ‘one-in, one-out’ Z shape design is often used as a simple means of vertically conveying product.


The Result:


The surface-treated bentonite is used to soften clothes in laundry detergents; the product is slightly corrosive however the Gough bespoke plastic buckets also available as metal detectable are designed to deal with these sorts of product.
