HOUSTEX 2013: Jorgenson Conveyers announces newest conveyor

The new MunchMan® hinged steel belt conveyor is designed specifically to handle heavy chip loads and large stringy chips and balls of chips generated in milling and turning applications where high work piece stock removal rates exist. The MunchMan® hinged steel belt conveyor employs a unique stacked conveyor arrangement at the lower curve and through the incline and chip discharge of the system. A traditional horizontal hinged belt load section transitions to the incline when a second hinged steel belt conveyor mounted above the primary conveyor is running the belt in the same direction as the primary belt. Both belts are designed with carrying cleats. As the chips and stringy balls of chips go through the transition at the lower curve, the chips and chip balls are literally sucked in and pinched between the two moving belts through the incline and discharge area. Chips are effectively compressed and trapped until they are forced off the discharge end of the conveyor.
