New base model flexible screw conveyor

Round, square, flat or bevelled flexible screws in any length from 3m to 12m are offered to convey virtually any free-flowing and non-free-flowing bulk materials including products that pack, cake, seize, smear or break apart.


The only moving part contacting materials is the inner screw, which self-centres as it rotates, which Flexicon said provides ample space between the screw and tube wall to minimise or eliminate grinding.


The lower end of the screw requires no bearing, while the upper end is driven beyond the point of discharge, preventing material contact with bearings or seals.


Fully enclosed, the conveyor tube prevents product and plant contamination, while the gentle rolling action imparted by the screw prevents the separation of blends.


The model 1450 is available with an optional start-stop control panel and a range of flow-promotion devices, and is offered on a ‘Quick Ship’ basis in the Americas and in Europe.
