As part of the wider Rotolok Group, Solitec design and manufacture a range of modular mechanical conveyors for the chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries.
If you are looking to convey, dose or discharge granulates or powders whether this be from a bulk bag discharger, sack tip station, hopper, silo or valve then Solitec have a mechanical conveying solution for your application.
Solitec conveyors can be mounted horizontally, vertically or at an angle. We can also incorporate multiple inlet and discharge points giving greater flexibility.
Screw Conveyors are one of the most versatile and extensively used devices for the conveyance of powder and granular materials in a great many industries. Solitec is a leader in the design, manufacture and installation of such conveyors to the solids handling marketplace. All our Screw Conveyors are a progressive development, incorporating modern and outstanding design features gained from many years of industrial application knowledge. Normal Duty and Heavy Duty machines are available as standard in mild steel or stainless steel construction. All standard machines conform to HASAWA (Health & Safety at Work Act).
Solitec conveyors include, U Trough, Tubular and Flex Screw in a multitude of diameters and can be manufactured in Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel.
Aero Mechanical Conveyors – DiscAir
The Solitec DiscAir Aeromechanical Conveyor is a well established method of air/product conveying. It works on the principle of a clamped polyurethane disc fixed to a wire rope travelling in a tube at a relatively high linear speed. The discs, loosely fitted in the tube draw in air and product, thereby effectively and efficiently creating fluidisation and product protection with very minimal product degradation.
The design lends itself to vertical and horizontal conveying or a combination of both.
Conveying distances are only limited by the power consumption and physical constraints. By splitting the units into various or varying lengths unlimited distances can be conveyed. Products handled are almost limitless, from light non-abrasive products like carbon black, to aggressive products such as iron oxide and sand.
As rope assembly speeds are considerably in excess of the conventional bucket elevators, the DiscAir is considered to have high capacities compared with other methods available on the market.
Solitec can also offer customised bulk powder engineered solutions with products including, Bulk Bag Dischargers, Bulk Bag Fillers, Sack Tip Stations, Gravimetric & Volumetric Feeders, Rigid IBC’s, Bin Activators, Silo’s, Dryers and a range of Mixers.
With extensive Rotolok Group design facilities located in the UK, USA, France, India and South Africa, customisation of equipment to meet specific requirements can be easily accommodated.
