Flexicon offers screw conveyor quick-ship program
Flexicon Corporation (Australia) has announced that it is now offering a quick-ship program for shipment of its flexible screw conveyors in popular sizes in 2–5 days as ready-to-assemble packages.
Conveyor tubes and screws offered through the program are supplied in any length from 3 to 12 m, in diameters from 67 to 115 mm OD. Also included are a stainless steel floor hopper, 45 or 90° discharge adapter, TEFC or washdown duty motor, and water-resistant control panel.
All product contact surfaces are of stainless steel, with the exception of the polymer conveyor tube. Non-product contact surfaces are of carbon steel construction with durable industrial finish. Stainless steel screws are supplied in a range of geometries matched to the material being conveyed.
Options include a hopper flow promotion device, hopper cover with unflanged inlet port, hopper screen and low-level sensor.
The conveyors can transport a broad range of bulk materials from large pellets to submicron powders, including friable products, abrasives and materials prone to pack, cake, bind or smear, with no separation of blends. Depending on the screw geometry selected, material can be conveyed at any angle from horizontal to vertical, in a straight or curved path, through small holes in walls or ceilings.
