Erie, PA—According to Eriez, a global authority in separation technologies, its new E-Z Slide Horizontal Motion Conveyor (HMC) will make damage to friable or delicate products caused by the hopping and tumbling action common to typical conveyors and feeders a thing of the past
Thanks to its positive sliding motion, fragile food products are moved down the conveyor safely and smoothly without breakage—with the same damage-free ride applicable to coated parts.
In foundry and metalworking applications, noise is greatly reduced due to parts gently sliding along the tray bottom. Drop gates can be provided along the length to carefully drop materials onto other conveyors or cross feeders.
The self-cleaning, gentle and low maintenance Eriez E-Z Slide HMC is offered in a wide range of widths and lengths to suit specific product requirements.
It can be floor-mounted on pedestals or suspended overhead. The single-drive unit may be located at either end or under the tray to fit any plant installation, even where space is limited.
Controls are available to allow variable speed adjustment. A variety of sanitary stainless-steel trays are standard, with many optional coatings and surface finishes offered. Trays may be equipped with single or multiple gates for bottom discharge.
