Positioning of the support boom against and parallel to the conveyor tube minimizes the height needed to maneuver the system under doorways and mezzanines, and to fit the conveyor's discharge between process equipment inlets and overhead obstructions. A low center of gravity maximizes stability during operation and when rolling the unit between multiple processing tasks and wash down stations.When fully lowered, the tilt-down mechanism positions the clean-out cap
The screw is the only moving part contacting material, and is driven beyond the discharge point, preventing material contact with bearings or seals. It self-centers as it rotates, providing ample clearance between itself and the tube wall to eliminate or minimize grinding, while creating a gentle rolling action that prevents segregation of the most disparate blends.Constructed of #316 stainless steel finished to sanitary standards, the mobile
Ready to plug in and run, it includes HMI controls for manual or automatic start/stop and speed adjustment, and a manual hydraulic jack to raise and lower the support boom and conveyor assembly.
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.
Flexicon Mobile Tilt-down Flexible Screw Conveyor with support boom positioned against and parallel to the conveyor tube can maneuver through low headroom areas, discharge in restricted spaces throughout the plant, and then roll to a wash down station.
