Flexible screw conveyors

flexiconFlexicon flexible screw conveyors feed powder and bulk materials to and/or from packaging lines, bulk bag unloaders/fillers, processing equipment, weighing equipment and storage vessels, all dust-free. They transport large pellets to sub-micron powders including free-flowing and non-free-flowing products that pack, cake, plug, smear or fluidize -- with no separation of blends -- vertically, horizontally, or at any angle, says the company. The screw is said to be the only moving part contacting material, resulting in reduced maintenance and increased reliability. A cap at the bottom end of the conveyor tube can be removed for in-place flushing of the smooth interior surfaces, or for removal of the screw for sanitizing. Flexicon flexible screw conveyors are available designed and constructed to food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards in stationary and mobile configurations.
