Bulk Material Handling Conveyors and Systems

When it comes to bulk material, Purvis has the experts and knowledge to help you from the stockpile to loadout. Our KMEC division hosts design engineers that specialize in civil and structural engineering. KMEC engineers take specifications from an end-user or engineering firm and turn them into a complete bulk material transport system.


We take designs and fabricate the conveyors in one of our two fabrication shops, then send the conveyors to the site. We design belt conveyors, screw conveyors, drag conveyors, and bucket elevators.  We work closely with our manufacturer partners to provide components and subsystems that will take your material from point A to point B dependably and for the lowest possible operating expense.  


We have four engineers dedicated to pre-sales support. They will come to your site to help define your needs, then offer a conveyor solution that fits the application. Together, the fabrication shops, our supplier partners, and the knowledge and experience of our KMEC engineers provide tremendous value to our customers.

Unit Handling Conveyors and Systems

Moving a series of boxes through a distribution warehouse? Have a production line that needs to transport goods from workstation to workstation? Our American Package Handling Systems business unit has you covered. We are proud to partner with Hytrol Conveyor to offer complete conveyor solutions for tough applications. Our conveyors and systems can help queue pallets for wrapping or shipment. We can work with external partner integrators to provide robotic material handling solutions for palletizing and depalletizing.

Precision Loading Systems for the Mineral Processing Industry

Purvis Industries owns the best truck and railcar loading system in the world: the Precision Loading System (PLS) from PICOR. PICOR and the PLS introduced a highly accurate, high-capacity loading system for the aggregate processing and mining industries to Purvis’s existing offerings.  

The patented PLS allows vehicles to be loaded to within 0.5% of the desired load! We can load entire coal transport trains at a rate of up to 16,000 tons per hour (TPH). The PLS also features the ability to load both trucks and railcars, or even two different tracks, from the same system. Various other options, such as telescoping chutes and transfer conveyors, may be added for further system flexibility.

Our PLS has been installed to load coal, power plant waste, limestone, manganese, and other bulk materials. Not only do we design and manufacture the mechanical portion of the system, but we also provide complete control systems featuring operator stations and E-houses for ease of installation in the field.

Single Operator Loading via the Walker Reclaimer

What if you could load an entire train or vehicle fleet with a single operator? What if that operation didn’t require ANY mobile equipment or mobile equipment operators? What kind of savings in operational efficiency would that produce for your bottom line?

You can with the Walker Reclaimer! Our patented design loads products from a processing plant into an automated reclaim system. A single operator can select, blend, and transfer different product types to a transport vehicle from a simple touchscreen. The system’s flexibility allows it to be scaled to your needs.
