Flexible screw conveyors are available in popular sizes, for shipment in two to five days with Flexicon’s Quick-Ship programme. The company has announced that the conveyors are available as ready-to-assemble packages.
Conveyor tubes and screws that are offered through the programme are supplied in lengths between 3 m and 12 m, with diameters between 67 mm and 115 mm.
A stainless steel floor hopper, 45° or 90° discharge adapter, TEFC or wash-down duty motor, and water-resistant control panel are also included as standard.
The contact surfaces of the product are stainless steel, with the exception of the polymer conveyor tube. Non-product contact surfaces are of carbon steel construction, with a durable industrial finish. Matched to the material being conveyed, stainless steel screws are also supplied in a range of geometries.
Options include a hopper flow promotion device, hopper cover with unflanged inlet port, hopper screen, and a low-level sensor. A broad range of bulk materials can be transported by the conveyors, from large pellets to sub-micron powders, including friable products, abrasives, and materials prone to pack, cake, bind, or smear, with no separation of blends. Material can be conveyed at any angle from horizontal to vertical, in a straight or curved path, and through small holes in walls or ceilings, depending on the screw geometry selected.
In order to prevent material contact with seals and related issues of bearing failure and product contamination, the screw is driven beyond the point at which material exits the discharge housing.
For wash down and inspection, the inner screw can be removed through a lower end cap, and the conveyor tube flushed with water, steam, or cleaning solution.
