Granular Products – Sugar & Salt Processing

The problem with processing granular products such as sugar and salt is that a regular conveyor often just won’t cut it.

If you try to process salt or sugar on a standard conveyor system, you’re playing with fire.

The vibrations will scatter your product into the air. And yes, this is shockingly inefficient – just think of the wastage – but it’s also a serious fire hazard. The slightest spark will cause an explosion.

But there’s a simple solution to this – the tubular conveyor.

Minimise waste while maximising profit

Tubular conveyors are perhaps the most important of all sugar and salt processing equipment. Through safely and neatly containing everything in a tubular conveying system, there’s less atmospheric dust. This will greatly reduce the risk of fire and explosion.

On top of that, tubular conveyors reduce wastage. Every grain of every product will get exactly where it needs to go. Because nothing falls between the cracks, nothing is lost – so you can minimise waste while maximising profit.

Cleaner, quieter, and more efficient – vibratory conveyors are better in every way. Ultra-low cost of ownership and world-class hygiene standards.

Inline Metal Detection - Cox and Plant

Inline Metal Detection

To accommodate wrap-around metal detectors we utilise a combination of polypropylene (under the metal detector) and stainless steel.  When metal is detected in your granular production line a gate opens removing the rejected product in a split second.
