BRUKS Rockwood supplies complete stockyard equipment and systems for most bulk materials. Equipment and systems range from the smallest semi-automated systems to the largest fully automated systems, including open storage and closed or covered storage configurations.
Air-supported conveying systems
BRUKS provides the TUBULATOR, the world’s leading air-supported conveying system since 1992. The TUBULATOR conveyor represents a new environmentally friendly method of transporting bulk goods with high capacity and speeds, in an energy-saving, dust-free and spill-free system.
The air-supported conveyor is built as a closed system of steel tubes. Inside the conveyor tube, a rubber belt runs at high speed on top of an air cushion provided by fans.
The TUBULATOR comes in several sizes and can be installed indoors or outdoors. It can be delivered with long self-supporting spans and for capacities up to 4,500m³/hr. The benefits of the TUBULATOR are as follows:
- Up to 40% higher capacity than same belt width with 45° trough design
- Totally enclosed for spill-free and dust-free transportation
- Low maintenance costs with moving parts only at head and tail ends
- Low noise levels
- Environmentally friendly, with low-power consumption
Bio-energy machines and processing plants
BRUKS provides machines and complete plants for processing and handling wood-fiber materials, wood fuels and other fuels within the bio-energy sector, including chippers, screens, hogs, TUBULATOR conveyors, various storage solutions, ship loaders and receiving stations.
