When Industries around the world needed a better solution for bulk material handling, Peter Olds had the answer. Learn more below...
The Olds Elevator™ Vertical Bulk Material Conveyor was invented by Peter Olds, of Maryborough, in Queensland, Australia. As an engineer who operates small foundry, Peter sought a better means to elevate foundry sand 18 feet to feed a newly acquired automated sand mixing machine.
Dissatisfied with the conventional methods of bulk material handling, including bucket elevators, screw elevators, pneumatic conveyors and inclined belt conveyors, Peter developed a radical concept that overcame all the obstacles he encountered when it came to elevating sand in his foundry – all while using less than 5 sq. ft. of floor space.
The Olds Elevator™ design combines speed, safety, and simplicity in an entirely closed system comprised of a casing that rotates around a static screw, enabling fast and effective material elevation while drastically minimizing the risk of dust explosions. The first Olds Elevator concept worked immediately on prototypes, which were followed shortly after by real-world units. Applications utilizing casings for 6 to 60 feet tall, with diameters of 2½ to 24 inches are capable of elevator up to 100 tons of bulk material per hour!
The Olds Elevator™ didn’t just revolutionize high-speed bulk elevation for materials ranging from steel shot and sand to powders, grains, and pellets of every kind. It also makes slow and careful elevation of potentially breakable materials easier and more cost-effective. In fact, with minimal centrifugal force, even manual turning of the Olds Elevator™ casing will elevate the product. This phenomenon opens the door for applications where easily damaged products can now be elevated without concern.
The performance advantages and economical nature of the revolutionary Olds Elevator™ technology are compelling, and the potential applications are limited only by your imagination.
