Horizontal Motion Conveyors

Key benefits

  • Nuts, vegetables and fruit work well on vibratory shakers as they will not graze or scuff against the conveyor tray, and high throughputs can be achieved
  • Any fragile product (e.g. snack food, fresh-cut salad) works well as there is no damage to the product. We do a lot of work within the salad industry and find that vibratory shakers tend to be the best option for moving bulk and low volume throughput salad leaves
  • If you are working with a mixed product or a product with several sizes in the same batch, then horizontal motion conveyors may be are the best a good option. The mild focused vibration means that the product will not separate, and the mix will remain consistent throughout
  • If your product is seasoned or coated, you need a vibratory conveyor that will keep your product intact. The constant vibratory horizontal motion prevents any accumulation of the flavouring or coating which may gather on the belt or tray of other conveyors

Horizontal motion conveyors are known to provide the most gentle handling and are very easy to sanitize and maintain. The low cost of ownership is a key feature as they are easy to maintain and require minimal parts, especially when compared to belt conveyors. Despite their 40% lower initial price, they eat up this saving within their first 2 1/2 years of operation by being very maintenance and spare part hungry.
