Accumulation system

June 1, 2009




The Slipstick conveyor has a horizontal discharge bin with optional product dams that are designed to be quickly and easily sanitized and reduce the risk of cross contamination between product runs. The conveyor’s trough may be open-ended, close-ended with a discharge rate control weir or extended for accumulation and discharge to multiple locations over long distances between receiving locations. The horizontal motion of the Slipstick allows product to build depth behind a pneumatically lowered product dam without product-damaging impact against the dam.
