Marietta (GA), United States – Dos Santos International announced the award of a patent and first order for the newest development in sandwich belt conveying technology. The DSI Adder Snake (US Patent number 9,815,627) was awarded on November 14, 2017. A particular shiploading application garnered the first order for the newly patented DSI Adder Snake for Yara Sluiskil in the Netherlands.
Sandwich belt high angle conveyors have long been known as the best solution for tight spaces where a steep lift is required to maintain a small footprint. However, applications are also quite common in which a large footprint is available, but a high angle is needed in just a small portion of the conveyor path.
