A new low profile flexible screw conveyor from Flexicon positions the motor drive at the inlet end of the conveyor tube, allowing the discharge end to fit within the limited headroom typically encountered above weigh hoppers or other vessels.
The enclosed dust-free conveyor can move material vertically, horizontally or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings, handling products ranging form sub-micron powders to large pellets, including those that pack, cake, plug, seize, smear or fluidise, with no separation of blended products.
The only moving part contacting material is a flexible inner screw said to maximise reliability while reducing maintenance. The smooth, crevice-free removable screw and tube interior allow rapid, thorough cleaning.
Low profile flexible screw conveyors are offered in 64-203mm diameters in stationary and mobile configurations to industrial, food, dairy and pharmaceutical standards.
