Cap Feed Elevator System
Asmech undertook a project at the start of the year to supply a market leading dairy with a brand-new Cap Feed Elevator System to replace an existing system that was proving to be unreliable. The new Conveyor which Asmech design, manufactured and installed proved to be so successful that we recently accept another order for a second system.
Operators were able to access the hopper with ease as the assembly was designed to incorporate gas struts, thus meaning the system could be supplemented without the need to heavy lifting and allowed the product to remain contained with no access for dust or contamination.
The Conveyor was designed to be integrated into the base of the hopper to filter bulk product into the Capper. Once product has been deposited into the hopper, product would transfer into the pockets of the belt where they would be elevated onto a mezzanine floor. Once product has reached its new work height, it would be dropped onto a new Asmech Cross Conveyor which has the potential to deliver product to two destinations. This was achieved by designed an underslung drive arrangement which allowed the conveyor to run in both directions.
