Low-maintenance, heavy-duty flexible conveyors

By Chemical Engineering |

Vibra Screw

The new Flexifeeder line of flexible screw conveyors (photo) offers expanded capability with less frequent maintenance. Each Flexifeeder is matched to the individual user requirement, using both this company’s extensive installation database and complementary laboratory testing. The use of controlled vibration at the inlet hopper eliminates material packing and tunneling, and encourages more balanced loading of the conveying screw. This, along with a simple and robust drive system, results in a more uniform repeatable conveying rate and dramatically reduced maintenance. Flexifeeders are available in capacities up to 1,500 ft3/h and single-unit conveying lengths of 50 ft. — Vibra Screw, Totowa, N.J.
