Flexible Screw Conveyors are just that – flexible! Flexible screw conveyors can convey in any direction – from horizontal to vertical, routed around fixed obstacles and equipment, and from one room to another. Additionally, flexible conveyors are ideal for lifting materials from bag dump stations or storage bins. They can convey products at ceiling height to feed a line of processing or packaging machines – as multiple discharge points can be placed along horizontal sections.
Flexible Screw Conveyors constantly remix material through the action of the rotating spiral – effectively eliminating the risk of product segregation. These conveyors are also an extremely cost effective method of conveying dry bulk solids and ingredients!
Flexible Screw Conveyors are called by many different names, including a flexible auger, flexible screw conveyor, flex conveyor, flexible spiral conveyor, helix or helical conveyor.
The modular design of the flexible screw allows any configuration to be easily and quickly built up to suit a customer’s exact requirements. Inlet hoppers, agitators and other special purpose fittings are easily incorporated to customise machines as necessary.
