FLEXI-DISC® Tubular Cable Conveyors
Metered (above) and Non-Metered (right) Inlet Adapters are offered with universal flanged inlets for connection to flanged outlets (or downspouts) of bag dump stations, bulk bag dischargers, silos or other material sources.
The Metered Inlet Adapter is equipped with dual adjustable metering gates that are infinitely adjustable up to fully-opened position using external locking levers, controlling the rate at which material enters the conveyor tube. The target fill rate of the conveyor can additionally be controlled by increasing or decreasing the speed of the cable and disc assembly.
The Non-Metered Inlet Adapter funnels incoming material at a feed rate determined by upstream processes equipped with a metered discharge to achieve the target feed rate. For non-metered inlets, the linear speed of the cable and disc assembly determines the disc pocket fill percentage.
Metered and Non-Metered Inlets are available with optional floor hoppers (shown) and with Bulk Bag Dischargers, Drum/Box/Container Dumpers, Bag Dump Stations, Storage Vessels and other equipment to supply the conveyor with material. Also see System Layouts and Integrated Systems
