This new Bev-Con mobile flexible screw conveyor with round vibratory screener removes oversize particles and reduces soft agglomerates before conveying on-size bulk materials from powders and large pellets that flow freely, to non-free-flowing products that pack, cake, seize, or smear due to compression or frictional heat.
Ready to plug in and run, the caster-mounted system can be rolled into position, locked in place with jacking footpads, and connected to an upstream material source in several minutes.
A rugged flexible screw with geometry optimized for difficult-to-move products, is the only moving part contacting material, and is driven above the point at which material exits the conveyor, preventing material contact with seals, and associated bearing failure and product contamination.
As the screw rotates, it self-centers within the conveyor tube, providing clearance between the screw and tube wall, eliminating or minimizing product degradation.
Aside from the smooth polymer conveyor tube, all material contact surfaces are of stainless steel finished to food, pharmaceutical, or industrial standards.
A lower clean-out cap can be removed to flush the smooth interior surfaces with steam, water, or cleaning solutions, or to fully remove the flexible screw for cleaning and inspection.
