    When to use horizontal, vertical or inclined conveyors

    2021-08-19 13:56:51

    As you might expect in the field of material handling systems, having equipment that can adapt to your organization's unique needs is critical. Not every location is identical, and to make your solution run smoothly an array of different configurations may be needed.

    For that reason, xingyong offers various options with its shiftless screw conveyors - horizontal, vertical and inclined. Each have their place in a material handling facility, so when should each type be used?

    Horizontal conveyors 

     Moving materials from one place to another is the core objective for a conveyor.  When the point of origin and the destination are at an equal level, a horizontal shiftless screw conveyor is most efficient piece of equipment available. 


    Vertical conveyors 

    In some situations, it's necessary to transport materials upwards rather than outwards.  In facilities with limited space, for example, sometimes taking some of the system up is the only solution when expansion is required, as floor space is at a premium. 

    Unlike with a horizontal conveyor, however, gravity is a factor when moving material.  Xingyong’s vertical shaftless screw conveyors feature breaks in the liner to provide resistance points along the way, helping to prevent the formation of rotating plugs and encouraging the material to move vertically.  If your facility needs to take materials to a higher level, a vertical conveyor is an ideal choice.


    Inclined conveyors  

    Falling somewhere between the horizontal and vertical options, inclined conveyors are capable of approximately 45 degrees of elevation through hopper feeding, or steeper with force feeding.   Whether as a connecting solution between two levels of horizontal conveyor, or a less steep means of upward material handling, an inclined shaftless screw conveyor is a suitable middle ground for many facilities. 

    Whatever the layout and configuration of your material handling facility, xiongyong's has the shiftless screw conveyor solution to meet your requirements.
