Key features, options, and models
Mechanical vertical transport can be realized using elevators or a screw. Both systems can handle bulk materials as well as loose materials and both systems are available in different versions.
Elevators are highly suitable for vertical transport of large quantities of product. Elevators from Dinnissen take up minimal space and can be integrated into existing and new production lines. Depending on the product to be transported, we have various types of buckets. Elevators can bridge one floor and are also suitable for multi-level transport. Elevators are suitable for transporting ingredients that are sensitive to abrasions, such as sugar, compound feed, chemicals, chalk, sand and cement.
Depending on the specific situation, elevator conveying can be done vertically or in a Z- or U-shaped pattern. For granulates or very fragile products, shuttle cups can be used. Furthermore, it is possible to install a pre-dosing system. The containers are available in polished or unpolished stainless steel, plastic and wear-resistant steel.
A screw can be used for both horizontal and vertical transport and is mainly used for short distances. Screw transport is very suitable for products with a high viscosity. Sticky or clumping material, such as a paste, syrup, or slurry, is transported smoothly by the rotating movement of the screw. This transport system with a low loading factor is also very suitable for transporting fragile products.
A screw conveyor from Dinnissen is available with single screws, double screws, or concave screws (overlapping/converging screws). In addition, the angle of the screw can be adapted to existing installation(s). Dinnissen's screw transport consists of a cylindrical tube in which a spiral screw is mounted concentrically. You can also use a screw conveyor without a tube. This is called a screw auger. For environments with strict hygiene requirements, Dinnissen supplies special easy-to-clean systems, equipped with shaftless screws or screws that can be easily removed.
