Low-Profile Flexible Screw Conveyor Rolls Under Mezzanines, Discharges Anywhere
BETHLEHEM, PA — A new Low Profile Flexible Screw Conveyor
with integral bin and caster-mounted frame can roll below mezzanines and other low-headroom areas, receive material from overhead equipment, and discharge the material into process equipment and vessels throughout the plant.
Ready to plug-in and run, the self-contained unit features a "push type" drive system positioned at the lower intake end of the conveyor, versus a standard "pull-type" drive positioned at the upper
discharge end of the conveyor, reducing overall height by approximately 2 ft (610 mm).
At 9 cu ft (0.25 m3), the integral bin accommodates the contents of approximately one-third of a bulk bag measuring 3 x 3 x 3 ft (1 x 1 x 1 m), or several typical 50 lb (23 kg) bags, depending on bulk density.
A specialized BEV-CONTM screw within the straight conveyor tube is engineered to move a range of difficult-to-convey bulk
materials that tend to cake, pack, smear or plug, as well as fragile products prone to breakage, with no separation of blends.
With the exception of the polymer tube, all material contact surfaces are of stainless steel finished to food, pharmaceutical, dairy or industrial standards for rapid wash down and/or corrosion resistance.
