Australian-made elevating spiral conveyors from vibratory equipment company Enmin have been specifically designed for the food industry.

This product range conveys products and raw materials vertically to higher levels, or conversely, down to near ground level, and fills a gap in the market that has until now only been supplied by offshore imports, Enmin says.

It’s also been designed to handle a wide range of tonnages and large array of dry materials, ingredients and products.

The traditional limitations with conveying material up an incline has been overcome through the acceleration of powerful vibratory motors combined with a specially engineered spiral flight path.

The result is the positive movement of material within the spiral, taking product from the in-feed point to the elevated discharge.

Its small footprint makes it perfect where floor space is a premium, and its ease of cleaning along with virtually maintenance free operation ensures the range is perfect for a large variety of food production environments.

The profile of the spiral ensures no spillage during the transportation process, and the open design allows for easy visual inspection, cleaning and changing of ingredients and product.
