A Van Beek Screw conveyor is always customised, on each occasion designed for that one specific application.
A screw conveyor transports powders, granules and pastes quickly, safely and hygienically from A to B, horizontally or at an angle of maximum 90°. It is a sealed system with an inlet and outlet. This makes the screw conveyor extremely suitable for the dust-free and noise-free transfer of powders.
Each screw conveyor system is customised...
The running and flow behaviour of powders may differ considerably. Dosing powders and granules therefore requires knowledge and experience. Van Beek has both in house. Its batch measuring equipment is never standard; there are plenty of other suppliers for this. Van Beek comes into the picture precisely when the client cannot manage with a standard batch measuring system.
The trouble-free elevation of powders and granules: Van Beek screw elevators are built especially for this. Difficult and risky dragging of bags on ladders and platforms belongs to the past. With the screw elevator all the material is delivered free of dust to the right place. You decide how high the screw elevator should reach and what the exact required capacity of the hopper should be. Van Beek screw elevators are made exactly the way that suits you best, in accordance with the Health & Safety requirements or safety aspects (CE).
In certain cases a buffer is necessary. For example if the product is discharged from a buffer for further process handling. This discharge requires experience and knowledge. The product may for example have clumped, contain lumps, stick together or have formed arches. Van Beek has the knowledge and experience to deal with this. Its buffer stations are designed on the basis of this experience.
Van Beek associates hygiene and screw conveyance: Hypreme.
Hygiene and screw conveyance come together in Hypreme. For Hypreme products the starting point is controllability of hygiene. Specially developed for food, pharmaceuticals and chemicals, the complete design is dominated by preventing microbacterial growth and the thorough cleaning and inspection of the system. Hypreme hence offers controllability of production processes in which everything revolves around hygiene.
Unique solutions thanks to unique combinations.
With the Hypreme concept each system is fully geared to your production process. After all, different requirements are made of hygiene in the pharmaceuticals industry than in the meat processing industry. Van Beek does not therefore deliver a ready-made solution. We work with you to design a conveyor line that best takes into consideration the hygiene requirements laid down. By together making the right choices of materials, finish levels, bearings, gaskets, drives and inspection and cleaning provisions, Hypreme makes any required combination in hygienic screw conveying possible.
Hypreme makes the right connection between the knowledge of our specially trained engineers, production employees, suppliers of components and materials, institutes (TNO and EHEDG) and your requirements within the production process. Together these elements form the recipe for a unique hygienic screw conveyor system.
