We’ve highlighted companies dealing with plastics, abrasives, grain, wood pulp, power and wastewater through a series of case studies addressing maintenance issues, operational inefficiencies, mitigation of material costs, and flow control, to name just a few. They all had one thing in common: their conveyor systems were all improved significantly through the addition of HammerTek’s revolutionary Smart Elbow deflection elbow. They experienced less product degradation, the downtime of their production lines was significantly decreased, and productivity outputs were higher.
If you’re just encountering this blog for the first time, these case studies are a great place to start. They’ll put the technology and design behind the Smart Elbow deflection elbow into context.
Faced with unique engineering and process challenges unique to their respective industries, these organizations all chose HammerTek Smart Elbow deflection elbows to solve those problems. For that, we’re grateful for their support. Some of them have been using Smart Elbow products as part of their conveyor systems for more than 15 years.
It’s one thing to read about the flow characteristics of the Smart Elbow unit and the deflection zone it creates. But if you’re like me, it can be difficult to visualize these concepts in such abstract terms.
Seeing is believing, so they say.
Let the video below (and others like it on our YouTube channel) show you exactly why the Smart Elbow deflection elbow eliminates pipe wear, product degradation, and noise in both pneumatic and slurry conveying systems. The vortex action in the chamber allows conveyed product to change direction by deflection, rather than impact.
