Flexible screw conveyors move materials at rates as high as 3,600 pounds per hour
September 12, 2005
Cyclonaire Corporation brings a new and versatile tool for conveying a wide range of dry solids to the material-handling marketplace. FlexFlite® Flexible Screw Conveyors use steel augers and flexible tubes up to 100 feet long to move materials at rates as high as 3,600 pounds per hour. They are readily portable and ideal for conveying product from bags, bins, hoppers, or weigh stations. Rated capacities for the three FlexFlite models are 100, 300, and 400 cubic feet per hour. FlexFlite conveyors can move materials as diverse as cement, sand, fuller’s earth, talc, caustic flakes, herbicides, fiberglass, PVC pellets, yeast granules, grain, nuts, and more – including products requiring sanitary handling. The spiral auger is the only moving part that contacts the conveyed material. It is coreless to minimize clogging and has an oval cross-section to ensure positive movement of material through the delivery tube and metering accuracy. Close pitching of the spiral allows increased flexibility, a tighter bending radius, and operation at lower speeds. FlexFlite is easy to run and maintain and can be ordered for standard chemicals and non-food materials or for pharmaceutical and food-grade applications. Materials of construction match the intended use.
