Flexicon's new extreme-duty Flexicon flexible screw conveyor with purpose-built hopper
A new extreme-duty Flexicon flexible screw conveyor with purpose-built hopper transfers bulk material received from front end loaders.
The conveyor consists of a heavy-gauge stainless steel screw that rotates within an 8-in.-diam stainless steel tube. Since the conveyor is driven at its top end by a 20-hp variable speed electric motor and gear reducer, material exits the discharge housing prior to contacting any seals or bearings. The tube interior and removable screw are smooth and crevice-free, allowing rapid, thorough cleaning.
Rugged enough to withstand incidental contact with front end loaders, the heavy-gauge stainless steel hopper holds up to 8 tn or 200 cu ft, providing an ample supply of material for the high capacity conveyor to run continually as a front end loader replenishes the material.
Self-contained on an all-stainless skid equipped with forklifting tubes, the system can be deployed in multiple indoor or outdoor locations with a single power connection, conveying a broad range of free-flowing and non-free-flowing materials from fine powders to large aggregates, including abrasives, corrosives, and materials with bulk densities up to 150 lb/cu ft.
Material is conveyed at a 40-degree incline before discharging into downstream processing equipment or storage vessels.
The system is also available constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial coatings.
