Olds Elevator Bulk Conveyor
Looking for a safe, simple, and cost effective bulk materials handling solution for bulk solids, granular, pelletised or powdered materials? Olds Elevator is a smart alternative to bucket elevators, conventional screw conveyors and augers, belts, and pneumatic conveyors.
The static screw rotary motion Olds Elevator conveyor technology can be used as a feeder, heat exchanger and offers inherent protection against dust explosion.
Olds Elevator - How it works
It seems to defy logic that by simply taking a conventional screw conveyor, fixing the auger shaft and rotating the casing, spectacular improvements in performance can be realised.
Olds Elevator is a bulk conveyor that can elevate and convey vertically, or on an incline, a broad range of materials including dense abrasives, sand, pellets, grains, powders and minerals. By virtue of its design, it can also be used as a feeder and heat exchanger while inherently protecting against dust explosion.
Simple design with few moving parts ensures maintenance is limited to accessible, long lasting and low cost parts. Olds Elevator is able to minimise the high cost of maintenance and energy consumption associated with bucket elevators, conventional screw elevators and augers, pneumatic conveyors and inclined belt conveyors while at the same time contributing to a safer workplace.
