Case History 8
Casing Diameter: 4 inches
Elevation: 21 feet
Rate per hour: 6 tons
A mid-size foundry was seeking an efficient method to elevate foundry sand to a height of 21 feet to feed their sand mixing machine.
The foundry had been using a crane to hoist bags of sand up to workers who emptied the bags into the mixer's hopper. The foundry owners considered purchasing a pneumatic conveyor to elevate their sand.
Instead, they purchased a 4-inch diameter OLDS ELEVATOR™ vertical conveyor for a fraction of the cost of the pneumatic conveyor. It delivers sand to a height of 21 feet at a rate of 6 tons per hour.Email Olds Elevator™
