Facet Engineering specialises in the design, manufacture and supply of conveyors. Their extensive range of conveyors caters for virtually all industries and sectors of the market.
Belt conveyors are one of the most commonly used power-driven conveyors. They are very versatile and offer one of the most cost-effective means for conveying goods. Product is conveyed directly by the belt and a wide range of items of varying shapes and sizes can be transported effectively. Belt conveyors can be used to move products in a straight line or through changes in elevation or direction.
Plastic modular belt conveyors are a specialised form of belt conveyor. Their unique feature is the plastic modular belt, which is manufactured from plastic modules arranged in interlocked patterns making it very strong. Plastic modular belt conveyors are used predominantly in the food industry.
Steep incline belt conveyors are used for transporting a wide range of products up steep inclines. These types of conveyors generally use conveyor belts with cleats and/or corrugated sidewalls. Steep incline conveyors are used to optimise space and have a unique benefit in minimising product spillage.
Roller bed conveyors are a very effective way of moving boxes, crates, pallets or any unit with a flat base. Roller bed conveyor systems can be designed to handle very light to very heavy loads of up to five tonnes and are also very effective in moving loads around bends. Roller bed conveyors can be manually operated or driven with geared motors.
Accumulation conveyors are a type of driven roller bed conveyor, whereby the product can build-up or accumulate on the conveyor to be processed as and when required.
Ball transfer conveyor tables work on the same principles as a roller bed conveyor, using transfer balls rather than rollers.
Slat band conveyors are a specialised type of belt conveyor and are typically used for conveying bottles and light products. A slat band conveyor uses a special type of modular belt, available in plastic and stainless steel. Slat band conveyors are used extensively in the automation of process plants.
A mobile bag stacking conveyor is essentially a belt conveyor designed to move bags or boxes at an angle or incline to feed onto the back of a truck or leading wagon and can be manoeuvred and adjusted in height to suit the requirement.
Vibratory conveyors are commonly used to transport free flowing products horizontally over short distances. The main function of a vibratory conveyor or feeder is to regulate the flow or feed rate of the product.
Swing tray bucket elevators are designed to gently transport a wide variety of products, both horizontally and vertically, without transfer points. Swing tray bucket elevators are capable of handling most dry, granular, free-flowing products; and can also work well with non-free flowing product.
A screw conveyor consists of a rotating helical screw blade, also referred to as an auger or flighting, housed inside a tube or trough. A tube screw conveyor is fully enclosed, whilst a trough screw conveyor can be accessed via a lid. Screw conveyors are mainly used horizontally or at an incline for transporting bulk materials. Screw conveyors are cost-effective and efficiently move bulk products to various points using multiple inlet and discharge points.
Bucket elevators are used for the vertical conveying of free flowing products such as grain, seed, pellets and powders. Bucket elevators can be used indoors or outdoors and can be designed to handle very small capacities and very large capacities of up to 200 tonnes per hour.
Drag chain conveyors are fully enclosed conveyors ideally suited to move high capacities of a wide variety of free flowing, bulk products. Drag chain conveyors are low maintenance and are ideal for horizontal conveying over longer distances (up to 150m) with the option of multiple infeed and outlet points.
Troughed idler belt conveyors are a specialised type of belt conveyor, most commonly used to move free flowing products such as minerals and grains. Troughed idler belt conveyors offer a cost effective means to transport bulk materials over long distances.
