Z-Incline Elevates IQF 14 Feet
Winneconne, WI - Multi-Conveyor (www.multi-conveyor.com) Multi-Conveyor recently built this stainless steel vertical scoop flight elevator that raises fresh frozen fruit over 14' in a small footprint. The operator manually loads bulk individually quick frozen (IQF) product into a specially designed infeed hopper where it will accumulate until the conveyor can take it away.
The product inclines and then discharges onto a customer supplied vibratory scale feeder with a total throughput of approximately 75 pounds per minute. A local NEMA 4X VFD was supplied to start and stop the conveyor as called for by the customer's scale and to control the motor speed.
Hinged polycarbonate covers with magnetic latches keep berries from falling out of the flight pockets when overloaded. Belt hold-down rollers make smooth transitions from horizontal to vertical with simplistic one-bolt removal for maintenance or sanitation.
