The conveyor consists of a heavy-gauge stainless steel screw that rotates within an 8 in. dia. (200 mm) stainless steel tube. Since the conveyor is driven at its top end by a 20 hp (15 kW) variable speed electric motor and gear reducer, material exits the discharge housing prior to contacting any seals or bearings. The tube interior and removable screw are smooth and crevice-free, allowing rapid, thorough cleaning.
Self-contained on an all-stainless skid equipped with forklifting tubes, the system can be deployed in multiple indoor or outdoor locations with a single power connection, conveying a broad range of free-flowing and non-free-flowing materials from fine powders to large
Material is conveyed at a 40 degree incline before discharging into downstream processing equipment or storage vessels.
The simple design is said to deliver efficient performance and high reliability while reducing maintenance and cost.
The system is also available constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial coatings.
New extreme-duty stainless steel Flexible Screw Conveying System from Flexicon can be forklifted to multiple plant locations to transfer materials sourced by front end loaders at high rates.
