Suitable for handling fresh concrete or wet/dry bulk materials, Travel-Krete provides automated delivery at the push of a button, safely and out of the way. The bucket moves overhead on a rail system at speeds of up to 570 ft./min, and it comes with track, buckets, controls, and hoppers. The controls can interface with an automated batch plant, or feature semi-automatic operation so that the operator can call for material as needed. Each system is tailored to a plant's specific requirements. Mixer Systems Inc. 800-756-4937. www.mixersystems.com.

Easy-maintenance belt scraper
Because it hangs over the top of the belt frame and is externally mounted to the chute, the H Primary Range belt scraper fits easily on most conveyor head chutes. Its polyurethane blades and robust design make it suitable for use on belts with mechanical clip joints. The scraper adjustment mechanism sits well-removed from flying debris, but within easy reach for simple maintenance. Horizon Conveyor Equipment. +44 0 121 550 2218. www.horizon-conveyors.co.uk.
