Flexible Screw Conveyors with Non-Metallic Contact Surfaces

July 25, 2011
These high-capacity, heavy-duty, 3-in. flexible screw conveyors include inlet hoppers, hopper top covers, outer casings, drive boxes, drive box top covers, and discharge transitions, all manufactured and seam welded with natural UHMW-PE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Plastic). The flat wire auger is coated with DuPont Tefzel ETFE resin to ensure that there is no direct contact with a metal surface. Finally the conveyor is designed without metal fasteners in product contact areas. A metal framework is used to provide structural support for the UHMW-PE inlet hoppers and drive boxes. Quick release T-handle compression couplings clamp the outer casing to the inlet hopper and the drive box assemblies and allow easy disassembly/reassembly of the conveyor.
