Low Profile Flexible Screw Conveyor

BETHLEHEM, PA — A new Low Profile Flexible Screw Conveyor from Flexicon Corporation positions the motor drive at the inlet end of the conveyor tube, allowing the discharge end to fit within limited headroom areas typically encountered above weigh hoppers or other receiving vessels.

The enclosed, dust-free conveyor can reportedly move material vertically, horizontally or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings, and can handle
products ranging from sub-micron powders to large pellets, including those that pack, cake, plug, seize, smear or fluidize, with no separation of blended products.

The only moving part contacting material is a flexible inner screw said to maximize reliability while reducing maintenance. The removable screw and tube interior are smooth and crevice-free, allowing rapid, thorough cleaning.

Low Profile Flexible Screw Conveyors are offered in diameters from 2-5/8 to 8 inches (64 to 203 mm) in stationary and mobile configurations to industrial, food, dairy and pharmaceutical standards, with optional hoppers, flow promotion devices, sensors, controllers and interchangeable screw designs to satisfy wide-ranging material and process requirements.
