Nothing is sweeter than coming up with the right solution to a sticky problem and that’s just what EQM has done with a conveyor system for a honey business.
The honey business was looking for a new solution to de-box its hives. This is a de-contamination process that cleans and prepares the hives for their next collection of sweet honey nectar.
The hive boxes are unloaded from a pallet and onto the new skate conveyor system and are then moved along the conveyor and through an air compression chamber that blows all the debris and remnants of honey.
EQM’s Tim Bloxham says the skate conveyor is currently a manual process but can easily be converted into an automatically motorized system.
“It works very well as a manual system but can be further optimized by adding a motor and gear drive.
