The sanitary conveyor moves bulk material using high-strength, one-piece polymer discs affixed to polymer-coated 304 or 316 stainless steel cable, that slide within smooth stainless steel tubing, moving fragile products gently, quietly and dust-free.
The discs evacuate the conveyor tubing of material at the conclusion of a conveying cycle, virtually eliminating wasted product. Any material clinging to the cable and disc assembly can be continually removed during operation by the stiff bristles of a brush box or by a residual return chute equipped with a disc ramp that dislodges material and returns it to the product stream.All material outlets, inlets and tubing are fabricated of 304 or 316 stainless steel with quick-disconnect covers and
Wet or dry cleaning accessories can be quickly attached to the FLEXI-DISC cable to allow rapid, thorough sanitizing of the system, minimizing downtime between changeovers, while optional Clean-In-Place systems provide automated sanitizing of the system.
Clear inspection tubing can be located in any straight run, allowing visual monitoring of fill percentage during conveyor operation, and of cable/disc cleanliness during wash-down procedures.
Gentle handling and cleanability offered by the conveyor make it suitable for friable bulk food and nutraceutical products, as well as contamination-sensitive chemical products.Modular system components, including 304 or 316 stainless steel tubing, drive wheel housings, tension wheel
The sanitary conveyor is offered as a stand-alone system, or fully integrated with upstream and downstream equipment such as inlet hoppers, bag dump stations, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag fillers, drum/box/container dumpers, weigh batching/blending systems, screeners, filling machines and storage vessels manufactured by Flexicon and others.
Free testing is offered at Flexicon test laboratories on full-scale Tubular Cable Conveyors and upstream equipment that simulate customer processes.
Wet or dry cleaning accessories can be attached to the FLEXI-DISC cable rapidly for thorough sanitizing of the system.
Material clinging to the cable/disc assembly can be removed continually by the stiff bristles of a brush box.
Material clinging to the cable/disc assembly can be dislodged by a disc ramp and returned to the product stream through a residual return chute.
