Cablevey Conveyors Move Feed Gently

15 January 2015

US - Cablevey Conveyors is a manufacturing company that develops and builds state-of-the-art enclosed mechanical systems used to convey feed mill materials and to feed livestock.

Based on its patented, gentle, cable and disc technology, Cablevey’s conveyors gently move products such as mash, vitamins, minerals and feed pellets through an enclosed tube without the use of air.

This gentle approach virtually eliminates the product separation and degradation that occur with traditional conveying systems such as screw augers and pneumatic systems.

For feeding fowl, the company's Feeding System allows you to even out feed ingredient distribution and with a charged feed line – there's feed in every pan when the system starts.

The systems provide adequate feed space so all birds eat at the same time and help eliminate migration.

High-speed feed delivery occurs with virtually no feed separation. The systems improve production and hatchability.

Numerous lay-outs are available using multiple inlets and discharge points. Systems are customised to your specifications.

  • 2000 Series System: two-inch (50mm) diameter tube. Conveys up to 75 cubic feet (2.12 cubic metres) per hour
  • 4000 Series System: four-inch (100mm) diameter tube. Conveys up to 525 cubic feet (14.87 cubic metres) per hour
  • 6000 Series System: six-inch (150mm) diameter tube. Conveys up to 1,240 cubic feet (35 cubic metres) per hour
