FLEXICON Corporation (Australia) Pty Ltd has introduced a new, flexible screw conveyor for bulk foods, pharmaceuticals, dairy products and other contamination-sensitive materials.
An innovative coupling design is positioned beyond the point at which material exits the discharge spout, which virtually eliminates the potential of contamination, while allowing quick disconnection of the screw from the motor drive for wash down.
The only moving part contacting material is a flexible inner screw that self-centress as it rotates, providing clearance between itself and the tube wall and creating a gentle rolling action that prevents the separation of blended materials.
Numerous standard and custom-engineered screws are offered to move bulk materials, ranging from large pellets to sub-micron powders, including products that pack, cake, smear, break-apart, seise or fluidise, with no separation of blended products.
Mobile units are also available, as well as high-capacity models.
Flexicon also manufacture pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag unloaders, bulk bag fillers, manual dumping stations, drum tippers, weigh batching and blending systems, multiple discharge systems and engineered bulk handling systems with automated controls.
