HMI controls allow manual and automatic start/stop and speed adjustment.
Material flows through the hopper into an adapter that charges the conveyor. As the flexible screw rotates in the material, it self-centers within the tube, providing ample clearance between the screw and the tube wall to eliminate or minimize grinding. The flexible screw is top-driven beyond the point at which material exits the conveyor, preventing contact with bearings or seals.The conveyor transports bulk materials from sub-micron powders to large pellets, while the gentle rolling action of
The rugged inner screw is the only moving part contacting material, resulting in reduced maintenance and increased reliability. A broad range of screws with specialized geometries is available to handle free- and non-free-flowing materials, including products that pack, cake or smear in other types of conveyors.
The conveyor frame can be finished to sanitary of industrial standards, or constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial coatings.
Flexicon's Mobile Sanitary Flexible Screw Conveyor can be tilted down to clear doorways 7 ft (2134 mm) in height, and rolled through aisles as narrow as 42 in. (1067 mm).
