Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a combination of any two or more systems?

Absolutely. The point of the specific sample designs is to highlight each capability. Your tubular drag conveyor(s) will be customized to your exact project requirements with as many inlets, discharges, and sweeps that you need.

Can I get an entire tubular drag conveyor made out of sight glass?

Theoretically yes. In practical terms, you could probably get away with most of your system in sight glass. Just ask your sales engineer for more clarity.
