11.06.2018 Wheeled low-profile screw conveyor

Flexicon Europe, Whitstable, UK, has introduced a low-profile flexible screw conveyor with integral bin and castor-mounted frame which can be easily moved below mezzanines and in other low-headroom areas. The self-contained unit – designed and manufactured at company’s US headquarters – features a ‘push type’ drive system positioned at the lower intake end of the conveyor, versus a standard ‘pull-type’ drive positioned at the upper discharge end, reducing overall height by more than 600mm.

A 250-litre integral bin accommodates the contents of approximately one-third of a standard bulk bag, or several 25kg bags, depending on bulk density. A special BEV-CON™ screw within the straight conveyor tube is engineered to move a range of difficult-to-convey bulk materials that tend to cake, pack, smear or plug, as well as fragile products prone to breakage, with minimal separation of blends. With the exception of the polymer tube, all material contact surfaces are of stainless steel finished to food, pharmaceutical, dairy or industrial standards for rapid wash down and/or corrosion resistance, according to specification.
