Segregation of material is often the costly result of selecting the wrong conveyor technology to transport blended product. Segregation leads to inconsistent product quality resulting in higher operating costs and lower yields. The break-down of a blended mixture occurs when materials of different sizes, shapes and densities sift and separate due to vibration or agitation during conveying. Unlike other conveyor technologies, Hapman's tubular drag chain conveyor smoothly conveys blended materials from the mixer without separation. The engineered distance between flights in the chain assembly provides optimum conveyance while mitigating material flowability, thus preventing the separation of the blended material.

Hapman's tubular drag conveyor is a versatile choice for bulk solids handling, easily conveying on multiple planes and in any direction from numerous inlets and outlets. The flexible engineered design allows for infinite layout configurations to efficiently convey a variety of materials beneath floors, around doors and plant obstacles, and through walls and ceilings. A heavy-duty chain and flight design results in gentle, quiet performance with little need of service.

Hapman's tubular drag conveyor has successfully handled a diverse range of materials, from hardened steel shot to pasta. Comes with Hapman's exclusive Performantee™, a true performance guarantee.
