A client needed a hygienic method to transport roasted nuts from an oven into a bucket elevator for further processing.
During oven startup, nuts are fed through but are rejected. The client also wanted a method of discharging the rejects to the side.
The oven also caused other issues with discharge as the area is quite large and material is difficult to catch.
Vibroflow offered a direct drive vibratory conveyor to receive material from the oven and feed into the bucket elevator.
Build material is a food grade stainless steel (316). In order to overcome the reject discharge, Vibroflow installed a removable side chute that, when installed, will discharge all material to the side.
Vibroflow increased the catchment area by installing a high side wall which would force the nuts to bounce back into the trough.
