Flexicon offers new base model 1450 screw conveyor
Bethlehem, PA - Flexicon has introduced a new base model 1450 flexible screw conveyor with a 4.5 inch (114 mm) O.D. polymer conveyor tube and low-cost carbon steel floor hopper and discharge housing. Round, square, flat or beveled flexible screws in any length from 10 to 40 feet (3 to 12 m) are offered to convey virtually any free and non-free flowing bulk material including products that pack, cake, seize, smear or break apart.
The only moving part contacting material is the inner screw, which self-centres as it rotates, providing ample space between the screw and tube wall to minimize or eliminate any grinding. The lower end of the screw requires no bearing, while the upper end is driven beyond the point of discharge, preventing material contact with bearings or seals.
Fully-enclosed, the conveyor tube prevents product and plant contamination, while the gentle rolling action imparted by the screw prevents the separation of blends.
Model 1450 is available with an optional ULlisted start-stop control panel and a range of flow-promotion devices, and is available on a Quick Ship basis in the Americas and in Europe.
The company also manufactures other flexible screw conveyors, as well as pneumatic conveying systems, tubular cable conveyors, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag fillers, manual dumping stations, and automated plant-wide systems which can be integrated with new and existing process equipment.
