Large throughput flexible screw conveyor

July 24, 2006
Spiroflow Systems has expanded its line of conveyors with a new high-capacity flexible screw conveyor maximum output of over 44 tons per hour. The Spiroflow 834 Flexible Screw Conveyor (FSC) not only encompasses all the advantages of a standard FSC, but also provides the user with the needed throughput for larger applications. The flexible unit can convey at inclines up to 60 degrees, while competitive rigid screw conveyors top out at 30 to 40 degrees and only convey at 30 to 45 percent, according to the manufacturer. Other advantages include 100 percent full capacity throughput, continuous mixing of product and variable speed drives for accurate metering.
