Jet Slingers
The Jet Slingers consist of short high-speed belt conveyor in which the carrying surface of the belt is held in a concave curve by hold-down discs, at each side of the belt. A vertical spout directs the material onto material, and is forced against the belt by centrifugal forces. It quickly obtains the high speed of the belt and is thrown from the Jet Slinger as the belt passes over the front pulley.
Trajectory of the material is controlled by raising, or lowering the front pulley direction of the material, that is controlled by turning the Jet Slinger.

Oil Skimmers
Burlicon Equipment manufactures an Oil Skimmer unit which separates oil from water. These units are available in various sizes. Operation of these units is by means of a thin steel band running around two wheels, the bottom one submerged in the liquid. As it rotates, the oil adheres to the steel band leaving the water behind and discharges at the top by means of scraper.
Roto Scoops
The Roto Scoop Separator is a dewatering and classifying machine which be regulated to deliver material conforming to exacting specifications, retaining or removing fines in the proportions desired, with remarkable accuracy and efficiency. Originally developed for sand classification and dewatering.
It is ideally suited for treating other products requiring similar processing. Roto Scoop Separators provide a simple means of saving special grain sizes, which are lost with over-flow water. The Roto Scoop Separator is a self-contained machine consisting of a large circular steel tank together.



Vibrating Screens

Burlicon has a range of Vibrating Screens which are designed for efficiency, simplicity and trouble-free long life. These units are individually designed to suit the material characteristics. Screens are available in single, double or triple deck, and can either be open or totally enclosed depending on application.

Rotary Feeders

Burlicon Equipment manufactures a fully fabricated Rotary Feeder with either direct or chain driven gear motors. Variable speed drives are also available. Apart from providing a seal to a hopper or a silo, it can be used to control the flow rate of material. Each Rotary Feeder is designed to suit customers’ requirements.



Bucket Elevator

The Burlicon Bucket Elevator comprises a series of buckets, attached to either an endless chain or belt, enabling material to be lifted vertically. 

The Burlicon Bucket Elevators are fabricated in several types and are suitable for many requirements,namely rectangular casings or circular self-supporting casings:

• Centrifugal Discharge Bucket Elevator 
• Positive Discharge Bucket Elevator 
• Continuous Bucket Elevator 
• Internal Discharge Bucket Elevator 

Burlicon manufactures spares for all Bucket Elevators.

Skip Hoists

The Skip Hoist consists of a guided bucket which is hoisted vertically or at an inclined angle by means of a Hoist Motor. These units are known for dependability as well as simplicity of design. They can be supplied with storage hoppers ranging from 5 to 50 tons.
