Universal Industries, Inc., founded in 1906, has been a bulk material handling industry innovator for over half a century. Beginning with bucket elevators and belt conveyors, Universal’s blue equipment is seen all over the country from fields to foundries and from quarries to food plants, with the company headquarters located in Cedar Falls, IA. Universal Industries, Inc. targets many different markets, from seed and grain to pet food and bullets and is an industry leader in the seed market because of our “gentle handling” elevators. With our Easy Dump® elevators we lead the market in gentle handling by allowing less degradation of the material being handled. Because of the low belt speed on our elevators we are an ideal choice for any type of material that may be abrasive or that is easily fluidized.
The newest line of products from your industry leader has come in the way of tube conveyors. With its heavy duty construction to last throughout the years, our series of UniTube® Conveyors will outlive and outperform similar-sized augers by 4 times. With the ability to handle a wide variety of materials, our conveyors can gently move corn, soybeans and other grains, as well as those that are abrasive or corrosive such as fertilizer, salt, sand and even crushed glass. An innovative jack and removable hitch are standard on all units as is a spring-loaded, collapsible hopper. A variety of drives are offered consisting of PTO’s, electric, hydraulic and gas. The UniTube® comes accessible with many options including swing away hoppers, Field Loaders for a low hopper profile and “S” Drive systems with heavy duty vulcanized and crowned drive pulleys to eliminate belt slippage.Check out this product line at www.tubeconveyor.com.
