PPMA / Bulk Handling Flexicon Presents Integrate Bulk Bag Solutions at PPMA 2012
At the UK’s leading processing and packaging machinery exhibition, PPMA 2012, Flexicon will present and exhibit a wide range of bulk handling solutions with a focus on bags and bulk transports.
Flexicon speakers promised to deliver insight into the company's comprehensive range of bulk handling equipment and systems at the forthcoming PPMA (September 25-27) at the NEC in Birmingham, England. The company will introduce a number of bulk-bag delivery systems including a combination Bulk Bag Filler with Pallet Dispenser and Powered Roller Conveyor for safe high capacity, simultaneous filling of two bulk bags. There will also be an opportunity to see the latest pneumatic gain-in-weight filling system designed to automate delivery of free-flowing bulk solids from down-stream silos or processing lines to individual bulk bags.
New Conveyors and Bulk Handling Solutions
The bulk handling specialists will also be featuring alternate types of high-speed conveying technologies including its flexible screw and pneumatic conveyors, that is able to move bulk material vertically, horizontally or to any angle – over, under or around obstructions. During operation the flexible screw self-centres as it rotates, its gentle rolling action prevents separation of the blend throughout the entire length of the conveyor.
The company believes that this pneumatic conveying system comes into its own where bulk material needs to be moved over longer distances, and is capable of transporting material from single or multiple sources such as storage vessels, process equipment, trucks, etc., to multiple destinations.
Customised Products With Own Laboratory
For any customer in need of an individual bulk handling equipment or custom build combination systems, Flexicon provides a test laboratory at Kent, England, where full trials on customer material can be undertaken.
