Hapman Receives Patent for Flexible Screw Conveyor

January 20, 2011
Hapman’s portable Helix Hi/Lo flexible screw conveyor has received U.S. Patent No. 7,866,456 for its unique design. With the touch of a button, the electric actuator automatically lowers the auger to an easy-to-access height. The patented design allows a single worker to safely and easily handle washdowns, auger changeouts, and servicing from floor level. This technology meets the stringent requirements used in industries that require frequent batch changeovers and sanitation regulations.

To minimize floor space, the mobile unit can move throughout the facility to meet the conveying needs of other applications. When lowered, it can fit through standard-size doors with ease. It conveys material at rates up to 25 cu ft/min and reaches a discharge height of 12 ft.
