The conveyor's surge hopper, which is configured for dust-tight connection to the outlet of upstream equipment, includes an air displacement vent with cartridge filter that is equipped with a reverse pulse cleaning system that dislodges accumulated dust with short bursts of compressed air, returning the dust to the hopper on a timed cycle, maintaining operating efficiency.
As the flexible screw rotates in the material, it self-centers within the tube, providing ample clearance between the screw and tube wall to eliminate or minimize grinding.
The conveyor transports bulk ingredients ranging from sub-micron powders to large pellets, while the gentle rolling action of material being conveyed prevents the separation of blends.The enclosed tube prevents product and plant contamination and permits
The rugged inner screw is the only moving part contacting material, resulting in reduced maintenance and increased reliability. A broad range of specialized screws is available to handle free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials, including products that pack, cake, smear, seize, plug or fluidize.
The mobile conveyor frame is constructed of stainless steel (shown) or in carbon steel with durable industrial coatings, and can be finished to sanitary or industrial standards.
