Kneeling Screw Conveyor Meters Powders Efficiently

February 9, 2011

The AERO-FLEX Kneeling Screw Conveyor provides an ergonomic method of metering product and conveying powders efficiently. The kneeling frame system is designed for easy cleaning and removal of the auger and designed to fit into tight spaces and through low doorways. Using a unique method for lowering and raising takes only 15 seconds. The auger is removed using a quick release coupling for ease of cleaning. The unit is also equipped with lift-up tube doors for complete cleanout and washdown with interlocking safety switches. The bag break/safety grate on the dump hopper keeps foreign materials from the material. Downtime is all but eliminated by using a heavy-duty auger that will not unravel during downtime.
