HammerTek Elbow Room

The Power of One

by Dan Capwell

HammerTek is the only one-product company that offers specialty elbows for pneumatic conveying systems. Yes, our SMART-ELBOW® Deflection Elbows are available in cast iron, carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel and other alloys; at 90- and 45-degree angles, and with either flanges or socket-weld ends, but it doesn’t change the fact that elbows are all we do! And it’s been that way since HammerTek’s beginnings back in the early 1980’s.

Over the years, we’ve seen ads for elbows from some multi-product manufacturers that show inaccurate renditions of material flow, or that make durability promises they probably can’t keep. These always get us to wondering: how well do they really know this vital conveying line component? This isn’t a little thing: ask anyone who has had to deal with an elbow failure on their pneumatic conveying line. Shouldn’t you put your process (and your reputation, and the safety of your employees and your plant) in the hands of the experts?

Behind each SMART-ELBOW is years of experience, both with convey line flow and material characteristics. Our varied elbow offerings show just how much we have developed and optimized our one-and-only product.
