The conveyor features a reduced footprint that enables the caster-mounted frame to maneuver through narrow aisles and around corners. With the hopper, support boom and conveyor assembly tilted down, the unit fits through standard doorways and orients the conveyor tube horizontally, allowing the flexible screw to be removed if needed for cleaning and inspection. Each unit is custom configured according to the discharge height, tilt-down height, discharge overhang and overall size parameters of individual applications.
The hopper, which is equipped with a hinged lid, feeds a flexible screw conveyor that transports bulk ingredients. Flexicon says the enclosed conveyor tube prevents product and plant contamination, while the rolling action of material being conveyed prevents the separation of blends. The inner screw is the only moving part contacting material. The mobile conveyor frame is constructed of carbon steel with industrial coatings and in stainless steel finished to industrial or sanitary standards.
