Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of coffee can Chain-Vey convey?

Chain-Vey is ideal for coffee in all forms. From green unroasted, to freshly roasted, to precisely ground coffee, Chain-Vey works for all of them.

Are tube conveyors easy to clean?

This is a resounding yes. The reason is that they're enclosed, so ambient dust never gets inside the conveyor. Wiper discs also continually clean the conveyor as in runs.

What kind of maintenance will I have to do to keep my Chain-Vey working?

Basically none in the first year. It's pretty much the lowest costing conveyor in time and parts to maintain available.
