Slipstick Horizontal Motion Conveyor
Available from Screening Strategies, a division of Triple/S Dynamics
Unlike conventional vibrating conveyors that use a vertical pitching motion to propel material with repeated impacts which can cause product breakdown, the Slipstick employs a single-drive mechanism to move the product. This mechanism provides a unique horizontal differential motion which glides the product down the pan. The consistent conveying motion throughout the length, width, and depth of the product bed helps prevent sticky build-up. And because it isn’t dependent on impact to provide motion, the Slipstick conveys deep product beds uniformly, with no stratification.
Ease of Maintenance
The Slipstick is designed for long, trouble-free service life. Mechanically, it’s based on a minimum of moving parts, with the fully enclosed drive mechanism consisting only of bearing-mounted, gear-coupled shafts. Durability is ensured through our dedication to solid construction throughout.
With more than 1,000 Slipstick conveyors in use today, you can be sure of decades of reliable service. The Slipstick’s enviable record of uptime solidifies its reputation for reliability, even in the harshest of environments.
Advantages of Horizontal-Motion Conveyors
The horizontal-motion conveyor offers a number of advantages over the conventional vibrating conveyors, screw conveyors, and drag conveyors that are often used in bulk-handling applications. Compared with conventional vibrating conveyors, which are usually powered by springs and convey material through impact.
