Spiral Elevators
Engineered For Your Specific Application

From the type and amount of material being conveyed to the environmental conditions of the operating location, each application comes with its own unique challenges. The JVI engineering team works closely with our customers to provide completely custom solutions designed to handle our customer’s exact material and environmental conditions.

Going Up & Coming Down

Spiral Elevators can be designed to convey vertically up or down depending on the needs of the application.


Small Workspace Footprint

With minimal workspace requirements, Spiral Elevators are easily incorporated into current processes.


Maintain Material Integrity

Ideal for conveying friable materials, Spiral Elevators ensure materials don’t degrade through the gentle vibratory motion used to convey.


Cool or Dry While Conveying

Cool or dry material as its conveyed to improve the end product quality. The customizability of JVI spiral elevators allows for several heat treatments including air vents for direct cooling/drying and jacketed flights for contact cooling via water.


Explosion Proof to Food Grade

From stainless steel construction required for food, chemical and plastic materials to explosion proof motors for hazardous areas to everything in between. JVI Spiral Elevators can be constructed to meet your unique application.


Easily Integrated

The JVI engineering team excels at designing Spiral Elevators to fit into your current process. This means you get all the benefits of a new spiral elevator without the costs associated with redesigning your current process.

Minimal Part Design Provides
Superior Conveying Performance & Reliability

JVI spiral elevators utilize two electromechanical unbalanced motors mounted directly to the spiral elevator to provide bulk material moving vibration. Combined with rugged construction, JVI spiral elevators provide a long and reliable service life.

Top or bottom Motor Mounting

Customized for the available space and process requirements, JVI Spiral Elevators can be designed with the motors located at either the top or bottom of the elevator.

  • Top mounted motors allow for lower inlet height requirements of the equipment feeding the elevator.
  • Bottom mounted motors allow for easier maintenance and adjustments of the motors.


Minimal Part Design = Higher Run Time

By engineering a simple design with the fewest moving parts possible, JVI manufactures Spiral Elevators that keep working in the harshest industrial environments.


VFD for Process Flexibility

JVI Spiral Elevators are normally operated with an optional variable frequency drive (VFD). This allows the end user to optimize the retention time of the material being conveyed to control feed rate or cooling.

Static Covers for Dusting Material

Contain dusty material inside spiral elevator with an integrated static cover. Custom designed static covers can be fitted with visual inspection ports which allow operators to view the product conveying during operation. Vent ports can also be incorporated into the design to allow for customer supplied dust collection systems. The static cover is also easily removeable for maintenance and washdowns.
