27.04.2015 Tubular cable conveyor ensures high level of hygiene

Flexicon Europe, Whitstable, UK, has introduced a FLEXI-DISC™ sanitary tubular cable conveyor which is designed for fragile bulk foodstuffs and other products which need to be handled hygienically and/or gently. It allows rapid washdown of the system between production runs.
High-strength, one-piece polymer discs affixed to polymer-coated 304 or 316 stainless steel cable slide within smooth stainless steel tubing with no risk of dust emission. The discs evacuate the conveyor tubing of material at the conclusion of a conveying cycle, virtually eliminating wasted product. Any material clinging to the cable and disc assembly can be continually removed during operation by the stiff bristles of a brush box or by a residual return chute equipped with a disc ramp that dislodges material and returns it to the product stream.
Wet or dry cleaning accessories can be quickly attached to the FLEXI-DISC cable to allow rapid, thorough cleansing of the system. Optional automated clean-in-place systems are available. See-through inspection tubing can be located in any straight run, allowing visual monitoring of fill percentage during conveyor operation, and of cable/disc cleanliness during wash-down procedures.
