Mobile flexible screw conveyor can be used to meter bulk ingredients and additives

December 15, 2008

The ‘Spiroflow’ Mobile Flexible Screw Conveyor is ideal to use with a wide range of materials, particle sizes and bulk densities for discharging from bulk bags, silos, hoppers, transportable rigid bins, mixers, reactors or dryers in process industries such as food, chemical, plastic and others.The conveyor can be controlled volumetrically or gravimetrically from the source vessel or by ‘gain in weight’ at the receiving end. Designed with the operator in mind, the ‘Spiroflow’ Mobile Flexible Screw Conveyor is easy to maneuver by a single attendant. Locking wheels ensure stability and safety when the conveyor is in use at the various locations, parked or being cleaned elsewhere. The system’s mobility allows use for diverse and multiple product applications in different areas of the plant. System design accommodates easy product changeovers and allows different products to be conveyed using the same system for maximum economy. The mobile conveyor’s only moving part is a motor driven spiral that rotates within a sealed tube to gently move material without degradation or risk of mixed product separation. The result is a system with a low installation cost that is high in efficiency and performance.
