Bulk Up: Heavy Duty Bulk Conveyors

Bulk conveyors are designed to carry large amounts of material from one place to another. Often, they are used to transport raw materials, like rocks, sand, or other heavy, raw materials. Depending on the conveyor, some bulk conveyors are constructed for light duty and the transportation of lighter and less abrasive items, while others are used for transporting the heaviest and most abrasive materials available.

How Do Pneumatic Conveyors Work?

Pneumatic conveyor manufacturers create a variety of pneumatic systems for a variety of transportation methods. In general, a pneumatic conveyor is designed to move lightweight material quickly from one place to another without hassle or a large amount of space. It is common to see these conveyor systems used with grains and other loose material as well as lighter manufactured items, like plastic bottles and containers. Most pneumatic conveyor manufacturers use a similar design for their machines, which help move the materials quickly without clogging or other problems.
