U-Trough Conveyors (TRU)


Manufacturers of U-trough conveyors

U-trough conveyors (TRU) are systems with a U-shaped housing and screwed-on covers in which the auger is welded to a tube or inner shaft.

The auger rotates at the appropriate speed to ensure the longitudinal advancement of the product from the loading end to the outlet end, assisted by gravity and featuring silent and low consumption operation.

The ideal solution: trough conveyors

Trough conveyors transport any bulk product, being the ideal solution for moving abrasive materials.
These conveyors are the most used solution by industry in general, aggregate and cement factories, lumber companies, and in facilities related to the environment and pellet manufacturing.

Their screwed-on design facilitates the maintenance and cleaning of the equipment, which is why this solution is commonly used in food, chemical, and pharmaceutical companies. Also, the closed design prevents product losses and the emission of odors and vapors.
