Low-profile flexible screw conveyor

02 September 2018

A new low profile flexible screw conveyor, with integral bin and castor-mounted frame, can roll below mezzanines and other low-headroom areas, receive material from overhead equipment, and discharge the material into process equipment and vessels. 

The self-contained unit features a push-type drive system positioned at the lower intake end of the conveyor which reduces overall height by around 610 mm.

The integral bin is able to accommodate the contents of approximately one-third of a bulk bag measuring 1m x 1m x 1m, or several typical 25kg bags, depending on bulk density.

A specialised BEV-CON screw within the straight conveyor tube is engineered to move a range of difficult-to-convey bulk materials that tend to cake, pack, smear or plug, as well as fragile products prone to breakage, with no separation of blends.

With the exception of the polymer tube, all material contact surfaces are of stainless steel finished to food standards for rapid wash down and/or corrosion resistance.
