Flexible Screw Conveyors handle virtually any bulk solid material. Depending on model, conveyor tubes can be curved around, over, or under obstructions, and routed through small holes in walls or ceilings. Only one moving part contacts material.
Both positive-pressure and vacuum, dilute phase systems ranging from single-point "up-and-in" installations to cross-plant systems with multiple pick-up and discharge points and automated controls, fully integrated with other Flexicon equipment and new or existing processes.
Tubular Cable Conveyors gently slide friable bulk materials through smooth stainless steel tubing using low-friction polymer discs attached to stainless steel cable, allowing single or multiple inlets and outlets, and the routing of conveyor tubing horizontally, vertically or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings.
Revolutionary design allows fast, easy and dust-free loading, untying, retying and removal of bulk bags. BFF Models feature bag lifting frame for forklift loading. BFC Models feature cantilevered hoist and trolley for loading without a forklift.
BFH Half-Frame Models eliminate upper frame components by relying on forklift or plant hoist.
Bulk Bag Conditioners loosen bulk solid materials that have solidified during storage and shipment, enabling bulk bag unloaders to discharge the material through bag spouts.
Available as stand-alone units (shown) or integrated with Bulk Bag Dischargers.
Twin cartridge filters with high velocity vacuum fan and reverse-pulse filter cleaning allows continuous, efficient collection of dust when dumping powder and bulk solids from bags, boxes, drums and other containers.
Flexicon offers three configurations: patented TWIN-CENTERPOST™ fillers* (shown) for low- to medium-capacity and/or sanitary applications where USDA Dairy standards are required; revolutionary SWING-DOWN® fillers for fast, safe bag connections at floor level; and REAR-POST fillers for applications requiring pass-through conveyors and/or powered fill head height adjustment.
Complete systems deliver virtually any bulk material from any upstream source, weigh batch and blend single or multiple ingredients, and deliver the batch to any downstream destination automatically.
TIP-TITE® models allow dust-free loading, sealing, tipping and discharging of drums, boxes and other containers.
Open-chute models offer a safe, low-cost method of discharging bulk materials from drums, boxes and other containers when dust containment is not a requirement.
Virtually all Flexicon equipment is available constructed and finished to meet food, dairy and pharmaceutical requirements of industry associations and governmental agencies worldwide.
The Flexicon Controls and Automation Department matches state-of-the-art control technologies with Flexicon's full-scale fabrication capabilities.
Flexicon can custom engineer automated, plant-wide bulk handling and process systems that integrate Flexicon equipment with bulk handling and mechanical process equipment of other manufacturers, whether purchased through Flexicon or by you.
Flexicon Equipment is constructed of carbon steel with a variety of durable industrial finishes, and stainless steel in industrial and food, dairy and pharmaceutical finishes meeting the requirements of your industry and application.
Whether your bulk material is comprised of large pellets, fine powders or both, flows freely or not at all, has a bulk density of 3 or 300 lbs/cu ft (50 or 5000 kg/cu m), or packs, plugs, cakes, smears, fluidizes, agglomerates, breaks easily or separates, Flexicon has most likely conveyed, fed, discharged, filled, weighed, dumped or otherwise handled it many times before. In fact, moving the most uncooperative bulk materials known to the chemical, paint, food, pharmaceutical and plastics industries has been a Flexicon specialty since 1974.
Examples of Flexicon advances in flow promotion include FLOW-FLEXER® bag activators, POP-TOP™ bag stretching devices, TELE-TUBE® telescoping tubes,
POWER-CINCHER® flow control valves, BEV-CON™ conveyors, high flow hoppers, deaeration/densification decks and a host of other components and accessories that promote flow while reducing degradation, dusting and/or the separation of blends comprised of disparate particles.
The ability to move your material efficiently, together with equipment designs and finishes that meet numerous regional and national codes worldwide for chemical, food, dairy and pharmaceutical applications, enables Flexicon to satisfy virtually every aspect of your bulk handling requirement, regardless of material, industry or location worldwide.
Mechanical bulk handling test lab equipment includes flexible screw conveyors in a comprehensive range of diameters, lengths and screw configurations, as well as bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag fillers, manual dumping stations and other equipment designed to interface with mechanical conveyors.
