Vibroflow was asked to contribute a spiral conveyor in order to lift foundry sand approximately 3 meters in a reclamation system.


A standard design was utilised in this application. Motors were located on top to keep away from material that may spill and damage them. Oscillating mounts were used instead of steel coil springs to assist in the stability of the unit, especially due to the overhead motors.
