Transporting hard-to-handle materials with a horizontal-motion conveyor
Finding equipment that can smoothly and efficiently move a fragile, easily agglomerated, dusty, or light-density dry bulk material, a material with interlocking shapes, or a blend of materials with widely varying bulk densities can present an enormous challenge in a dry processing plant. This article introduces you to one machine that can answer that challenge -- the horizontal-motion conveyor, which gently impels material without segregating, aerating, or stratifying the particles.
A horizontal-motion conveyor [also called a horizontal differential-motion conveyor, differential-motion conveyor, or differential conveyor] can convey any free-flowing dry bulk material. But it's the conveyor's unique way of applying motion to a solid that provides several benefits for transporting many hard-to-handle dry materials.
