Solids Conveying Portable Conveyor Fits Tight Spaces
Bulk solids handling specialist Flexicon (Europe) has a new screw conveyor with a tilt-down base which moves easily along narrow aisles and around corners, thanks to its small footprint and castor-mounted frame. With the hopper, support boom and conveyor assembly tilted down, the unit fits through standard doorways and positions the conveyor tube horizontally, allowing the flexible screw to be removed easily for cleaning and inspection. The enclosed conveyor tube prevents contamination, while the gentle rolling action of material being conveyed prevents the separation of blends. The rugged inner screw is the only moving part in contact with the conveyed material.
