Abstract

Given the diversity of products that need to be transported into the food processing industry, transporting with trailers on narrow rail can be used successfully in case of granular solid materials, or in the form of units (in cold or hot state), and also for the unit tasks.
Transporting with trailers on the narrow track takes the advantage of a security
operation, with minimum costs, higher travel speeds (6...8 km/h), as well as of a high reliability. Transport of materials also can be run over longer distances (compared with conveyors or roller) and on combined paths (rectilinear and curvilinear).
Trail transport and can travel also on a system of single rail guides (the trail being designed with a central shaft), thus allowing installation of guides on the nearest wall and eliminating the necessary support systems in the production hall. Downloading the material of conveyance can be done through a funnel located at the bottom of trail transport (with the help of two valves operated by a hydraulic cylinder, or by means of a rotating system).
