A closed, natural-frequency trough conveyor, 30 m long and 400 mm wide, was shipped by VIBRA SCHULTHEIS as part of a project to expand a production facility in China. The conveyor is designed to handle 20 tons per hour of a hot, calcined aluminum powder. In addition to the unusually long conveying distance, it also integrates the following outstanding features:
Since the material conveyed is highly abrasive, the conveying trough takes the form of a closed, rectangular tube with an extra-thick wall. Owing to the modular design, the individual trough sections can be easily replaced when they eventually become worn at some time in the distant future.
