Flexicon has introduced a new manual dumping station with integral FLEXI-DISC tubular cable conveyor designed to collect dust created during manual dumping from bags, boxes, pails and other containers, and gently convey the collected material at any angle over short or long distances.

Incorporating a high velocity vacuum fan that draws airborne dust from the operator's atmosphere onto cartridge filters, the unit features automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning to allow continuous, efficient operation. Short blasts of compressed plant air released inside the filters by timer-activated solenoid valves cause dust build-up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper. The filters can be easily accessed by removing the interior baffle, and replaced using quick-disconnect fittings.

Key highlights include material moved by the conveyor using high-strength polymer discs affixed to a stainless steel or galvanised cable that slide fragile materials within smooth stainless steel tubing, gently, quietly and dust-free, horizontally, vertically or at any incline; discs and cable driven by a wheel at one end of the circuit and put under tension by a wheel at the other end, fully evacuating the conveyor of material; choice of single or multiple inlets and outlets, or conveying over short distances or hundreds of metres; and stainless steel construction finished to food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards.

Flexicon’s manual dumping station with integral conveyor is particularly suitable for manual dumping and conveying of food products that are prone to breakage or degradation such as cereals, coffees, teas, dried fruits, frozen vegetables, grains, nuts, peas, pet foods, seeds, snack foods and spices. The system is also ideal for typical non-food applications including bulk chemicals, minerals, chopped fibreglass, microspheres, regrind, pellets, tobacco and other friable materials.

Flexicon also manufactures flexible screw conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag fillers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag dischargers, drum/box/container tippers, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
