Python is the latest generation of AVR’s twin conveyor belts. It offers high capacity and is potato-friendly, thanks to features such as moving raised edges. Moreover, the Python is easily transportable and easy to operate.
Fast, product-friendly, flexible and easy to control. All of this makes the Python suited to the crop handling process. One of the typifying features of the AVR twin conveyor is a stable and robust frame which also offers a high degree of maneuverability. The machine has been designed to allow both conveyors to be positioned at all possible angles, relative to each other. Thanks to the independent height adjustment of the product intake and discharge outlets and the electronic length adjustment, the Python can be installed in every position on the line.
A tandem construction with four casters and the 360° rotatable main wheels allow the machine to be moved by only one person. The design of the conveyor belts with raised edges, ensures that the product never comes into contact with the metal frame parts, thus guaranteeing a soft product flow. The combination of a fully adjustable transition between the first and second conveyor belt and a drum measuring no more than 160 mm in diameter, ensures that drop heights are reduced to an absolute minimum.
In addition, the raised edges create a trough to accommodate the secure conveyance of large volumes. As the section at the center of this trough remains entirely flat, the Python also lends itself to manual inspection of the crop.
Ease of use
AVR twin conveyors are designed to relieve the user’s work. The extensive features they are equipped with as a standard, include a frequency converter, electronic length adjustment, and a belt control system that makes readjustments unnecessary. Additionally, the installation of AVR Line Control software allows the Python to communicate with all other AVR machines in the line.
An extensive package of standard features includes a frequency controller, electrically powered intake/discharge controls, automatic conveyor alignment, etc. The conveyor is flexible thanks to the independent height adjustment of the intake and discharge outlets, length adjustment, and large swivel angle. A tandem wheel construction guarantees sturdy and stable positioning. Speed for both belts is synchronized.
The Python is available in two lengths: a twin conveyor comprising two belts each 7 meters long, and a model with belts 9 meters in length. It will be on display, fully operational in a demo set-up at the Potato Europe trade fair on 6 and 7 September in Kain, Belgium.
