Flexible Screw Conveyor up to 15 m3/h

A flexible screw conveyor, also known as a spiral conveyor, is a type of conveyor system that uses a flexible helical screw to transport bulk materials from one point to another. The screw is enclosed in a flexible tube, allowing it to bend and flex around obstacles and corners, making it ideal for conveying materials in tight spaces and complex layouts. This technology offers a cost-effective and efficient alternative to traditional conveying systems, providing gentle handling of materials while maintaining product integrity.

The flexible screw conveyors are an extremely low-maintenance space-saving solution and are used primarily in the plastic, chemical, food, and building material industries.
Because of the high rotating speed (about 850 rpm), this kind of screw conveyor is not suitable for transporting delicate items. However, flexible screw conveyor is extensively used to transport powders, granules, and pellets.
Product discharge from a big bag, container, or sack discharging station, as well as the filling of mixers or containers, are examples of frequent applications.

Applications of Flexible Screw Conveyors:

A flexible screw conveyor, also known as a flexible auger conveyor, is a mechanical conveying system used to transfer bulk materials from one point to another. It consists of a flexible spiral screw enclosed in a flexible or rigid tube.

The design of a flexible screw conveyor allows for versatility and adaptability to various applications and industries. Our flexible screw conveyors find applications across a wide range of industries, including food processing, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, plastics, agriculture, and more. They are used to convey various materials such as powders, granules, flakes, pellets, and even fragile or abrasive substances. Flexible screw conveyors are commonly used for transferring ingredients, mixing and blending, packaging, filling, and discharging materials into processing or storage equipment.

 

 

Benefits of Flexible Screw Conveyors:

Flexible screw conveyors offer numerous benefits, making them a popular choice for material handling applications:

– Versatility: They can handle a wide range of materials, including both free-flowing and non-free-flowing substances.

– Customizability: Flexible screw conveyors can be tailored to suit specific application requirements, including length, diameter, and materials of construction.

– Compact Design: Their compact and space-saving design allows for easy integration into existing production lines or tight spaces.

– Gentle Material Handling: The gentle conveying action of the flexible screw minimizes product degradation and maintains the integrity of fragile or sensitive materials.

– Easy Maintenance: With fewer moving parts and a simple design, flexible screw conveyors are easy to clean and maintain, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.

– Cost-Effective: Flexible screw conveyors offer a cost-effective solution for material handling, with lower installation and operating costs compared to other conveyor systems.
