The SpanTech specialty Spiral Cooling Conveyor was originally designed to solve a cracker company's cooling problems.
Advanced Equipment Company & Span Tech solve the cracker conundrum with a 360-degree Spiral plastic belt curved cooling conveyor with only a quarter-horsepower motor.
The cooling conveyor travels 360-degrees around the room. Normally, drag is created between the plastic chain and the outside edge of a spiral conveyor. This drag creates friction that requires more horsepower to keep things moving. A more traditional approach would require three synchronized motors.
To lower costs, a quarter-horsepower motor driving the belt chain was installed at multiple points. This allowed the 360-degree conveyor to move to the exact timing needed by the cooling crackers – 10 feet per second – on far less horsepower than would have been used with three motors.
