Vertical Conveyor elevates, heats, cools, and meters sand.

Press Release Summary:

Able to elevate bulk material at 90° in under 10 ft² of floor space, Vertical Lift Sand Conveyor does not segregate materials during elevations and eliminates need for separate metering devices. Rotating casting with attached intake scoops is only moving part to touch product, preventing contamination. In addition to providing dust-free elevation, conveyor offers variable flow rate and is designed to reduce maintenance and accelerate clean-out.

Palmer Manufacturing & Supply, Introduces New Vertical Lift Sand Conveyor

SPRINGFIELD, OH – Palmer Manufacturing & Supply, Inc., recently introduced a Vertical Lift Sand Conveyor.  This conveyor uniquely elevates, heats, cools and meters.  And, only one moving part comes in contact with the sand!

The uncomplicated design of this new elevator substantially reduces maintenance costs compared to standard bucket elevators. The rotating casting with attached intake scoops is the only moving part to touch the product; thereby preventing any product contamination. One foundry moving 10-20 tons of sand per day is reporting no maintenance costs or downtime over a six year period!

Significant advantages:

• High Volume & High Temperature Handling

• Vertically Elevates, Heats, Cools and Meters

• Does Not Segregate Materials during Elevations

• No Need for Separate Metering Devices

• Small Footprint – elevate bulk material at 90° in under 10 sq. ft. of floor space

• Precision Variable Flow Rate

• Fire & Explosion Risk Minimized

• Dust-free Elevation

• Product Shielded from Contaminants

• Rapid Clean-out

• Energy Efficient – operates with low amp draw and outperforms pneumatic systems without costly compressors, blowers, and vacuum equipment

• VFD-based for Metering

“Our new vertical conveyor represents a major breakthrough as it outperforms bucket elevators and reduces maintenance costs at the same time.  It reduces contamination, maintenance and is a safer and more accurate elevator.  Designing heavy-duty systems that are easier to operate and need fewer devices are Palmer hallmarks,” said Jack Palmer, President of Palmer Manufacturing & Supply, Inc.
