Choose an equipment vendor wisely to avoid integration headaches
Purchasing a bucket elevator, aeromechanical, or flexible screw conveyor involves not only buying the right equipment and configuration, it also involves ensuring that the conveyor will successfully work as intended once it is inserted into your process. Conveyor integration is a key aspect of any equipment purchase.
Conveying equipment can be integrated into a production line or process in a number of ways. The challenge for the equipment designer is to develop a solution that suits the configuration of the process, while moving material safely, efficiently, and effectively.
Given the wide range of process configurations and material types, successful conveyor integration depends on an equipment manufacturer’s ability to customize and adapt their equipment to a specific environment. Particularly important is how the manufacturer designs and adapts their equipment to interface with the upstream and downstream equipment that will link up with the conveyor.
