HPVa1000 conveyors lift and transport the screening over long distances. They are used to remove screenings from locations that are difficult to access and/or have a low elevation. The reception units and the Wash Presses can be located in a convenient and elevated location. HPVa1000 conveyors guarantee effective, easy and clean collection and transportation of screenings.
The systems consist of reception units, vacuum pumps, hoppers at the screens, connecting pipelines and controls.The screenings drop from the screens into one or several hoppers. When a batch of screenings has collected in the hopper, the batch of screenings is evacuated from the hopper and pulled through the pipelines. The screenings are drawn into a reception unit from where they drop into the hopper of a Wash Press underneath. After being washed and compacted in the Wash Press the screenings are discharged into a container or dumpster.
