The long awaited and eagerly anticipated Skandia Belt Conveyor is now available in the UK through BDC Systems Limited and will take centre stage on the company’s stand at Lamma this week. Stand No 315.
For many years, Skandia Elevator has been one of the world’s leading experts in chain conveyors and bucket elevators for grain transportation. The company now presents its first belt conveyor. Having researched what was missing from other belt conveyors on the market, Skandia Elevator has set out to produce a new and better product “the world’s best belt conveyor”.
Launched worldwide at Agritechnica in Hanover in November the new belt conveyor is available in capacities from 40tph – 150tph and this fits into Skandia’s “I” range of semi commercial equipment. The BTI is an ideal machine for filling large buildings and is energy efficient for the long transportation of grain.
Heavy duty angled rollers, each easily adjustable, support the belt on the top of the machine. Heavy duty horizontal rollers support the belt on the return with angled rollers set periodically down the machine to adjust the belt and keep it running centrally.
The discharge tripper can be supplied with a manual or motorised valve and the tripper is moved by a fixed electric winch and cable system. Top covers can be supplied for external use. Limit switches can be supplied to position the discharge tripper and the drive is a direct coupled right angled Nord motor gearbox. A self-adjusting weighted tail end roller is supplied for longer units.
BDC’s Managing Director, Andrew Head commented: “This new machine has been on the drawing board for a number of years and we are very pleased that Skandia has now added this to the range. It certainly looks a simple, robust and well engineered conveyor – something that will be evident to show visitors who have the opportunity to view a full sized section of the machine on the BDC stand.
BDC Systems has represented Skandia in the UK for many years and offers unrivalled product knowledge and technical support on both Skandia equipment and the extensive range of other grain drying, cleaning, storage and ventilation equipment it also supplies to the UK market. Examples of BDCs other product ranges will also be highlighted at Lamma.
