Shibuya Hoppmann Corporation: Bulk conveyor achieves speeds of more than 60 ft./min.
The new EC-Series Bulk Product Conveyor from Shibuya Hoppmann can be used as a bulk conveying system or can be modified to accommodate a bulk hopper for any prefeeding need.

The low cost EC-Series conveyor uses formed edge product rails, which are slotted to adjust the amount of clearance between the belt cleats and the sidewalls. The conveyor’s rugged 3/8-in. thick belt cleats are suitable for heavy-duty applications. A product well at the base prevents parts from falling.
The conveyor’s speed of over 60 ft./min. allows for movement of large quantities of parts. The conveyor also has a 304 stainless steel construction and an FDA/USDA-approved white PVC belt with heavy duty 2-in. tall cleats.
Options for customizing the conveyor include longer conveyor lengths, other cleat pitches, and custom chutes.
