15.05.2017 Mobile screener-conveyor handles non free flowing materials

Flexicon Europe, Whitstable, UK, is now offering the new BEV-CON™ mobile flexible screw conveyor manufactured by its US parent company. Equipped with a cylindrical vibratory screener, it is capable of removing oversize particles and reducing soft agglomerates before conveying on-size bulk materials ranging from powders and large pellets that flow freely, to non-free-flowing products that have a tendency to pack, cake, seize or smear due to compression or frictional heat.
Ready to plug in and run, the castor-mounted system can be rolled into position, locked in place with jacking footpads, and connected to an upstream material source in several minutes. A rugged flexible screw with geometry optimised for difficult-to-convey products, is the only moving part contacting material, and is driven above the point at which material exits the conveyor, preventing material contact with seals, and associated bearing failure and product contamination.
As the screw rotates, it self-centres within the conveyor tube, providing clearance between the screw and tube wall, eliminating or minimising product degradation. Apart from the smooth polymer conveyor tube, all material contact surfaces are of stainless steel finished to food, pharmaceutical or industrial standards. A lower clean-out cap can be removed to flush the smooth interior surfaces with steam, water or cleaning solutions, or to fully remove the flexible screw for cleaning and inspection.
