Flexicon offers an all-new Flexi-Disc line of tubular cable conveyors for the gentle transfer of friable food and non-food products. The conveyor moves material using high-strength polymer discs –– affixed to a stainless steel or galvanized cable –– that slide within smooth stainless steel tubing, moving fragile products gently, quietly, and dust-free, horizontally, vertically or, at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings. The system can have single or multiple inlets and outlets, and convey over short distances or hundreds of feet. Its gentle handling make the conveyor suitable for food products that are prone to breakage or degradation including: cereals, coffees, teas, dried fruits, frozen vegetables, grains, nuts, peas, pet foods, seeds, snack foods, and spices. Typical non-food applications include bulk chemicals, minerals, chopped fiberglass, microspheres, regrind, pellets, tobacco, and other friable materials.
