Flexible Screw vs Pneumatic Vacuum VS Tubular Conveyors
Spiral conveyor, pneumatic vacuum conveyor, tubular conveyor…which is the best option for your bulk solids?
We break it down for you below.
Comparing Flexible Screw Conveyors, Pneumatic Conveyors and Tubular Conveyors
There are several options available on the market when it comes to conveying most materials. Spiral conveyors (also known as Spiralfeeder™ or flexible screw conveyors), pneumatic conveyors and tubular cable conveyors (sometimes called drag or disc conveyors.) Choosing the best one for your specific use, however, requires three primary considerations:
- The type of materials you need to convey
- Physical parameters/environmental conditions
- Project budget
Most often, our customers have narrowed their choices down to either a flexible screw conveyor, pneumatic vacuum conveyor or a tubular conveyor. That’s why we are only going to compare these three options here.
