The Flexi-Disc tubular cable conveyor transfers friable food and non-food products gently, quietly, and dust-free. The conveyor moves material using high-strength polymer discs––affixed to a stainless steel or galvanized cable––that slide within smooth stainless steel tubing routed 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. Fragile food products conveyed include: 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. Industrial and sanitary models are offered with accessories for wet or dry cleaning, including CIP sanitizing. It is offered as a stand-alone system or a fully integrated with new or existing upstream and downstream equipment.
