  • Flexible Screw Conveyors for Moving Fine Materials

    How do you move fine, granulated or powdery materials? Many times this can be a difficult task, but it does not have to be. To avoid spilling and contamination a product there is one kind of conveyor that is perfect for the task. Not only does this piece of equipment move products and materials laterally, but it also has the capability of moving them vertically and the line from Point A to Point be does not necessary have to be straight. If you have not guessed already, that piece of...

  • Basic Bulk Bag Filler Unveiled by Flexicon Corporation

    by Flexicon Corporation BETHLEHEM, PA - The new Basic Bulk Bag Filler introduced by Flexicon performs low capacity filling operations at minimal cost, and can be upgraded with performance enhancements including a material delivery system integrated with the user's process equipment or bulk storage vessels, says David Boger, VP Sales and Marketing. The new Model BFB" filler is a lighter-duty version of the company's heavy-gauge Twin-Centerpost filler, a patented design with two on-center posts said to offer the structural integrity of four-post fillers but at significantly lower material and fabrication...

  • Flexicon Corporation Announces Sanitary Bulk Bag Weigh Batch Unloader

    A new BULK-OUT® Bulk Bag Weigh Batch Unloading System with Manual Dumping Station and Flexible Screw Conveyor automatically conveys weighed batches of contamination-sensitive materials to downstream processes and allows rapid sanitizing. The BFC model discharger frame is equipped with a cantilevered I-beam with electric hoist and trolley for positioning of bulk bags without the use of a forklift.  A SPOUT-LOCK® clamp ring atop a TELE-TUBE® telescoping tube securely connects the clean side of the bag spout to the clean side of the equipment intake, and maintains constant downward tension...

  • Engineering Flexible Screw Conveyors

    A quick Google search for images of flexible screw conveyors produces a screen full of seemingly identical images: a shaftless auger, typically inside of a plastic tube, driven by a motor that spins the auger, moving material from an inlet to an outlet. The overall design concept of flexible screw conveyors is relatively straightforward. However, the simplicity of their design can be somewhat deceiving. Much like a pneumatic conveying system, the efficiency of flexible screw conveyors is highly dependent on initial design, specialized knowledge of material characteristics, and proper calculation...

Flexible Screw Conveyors

Flexible screw conveyors are materials handling equipment that involve the use of a rotating screw within a tubular or polygonal conveyance channel. When a motor turns the screw, the material within the channel is forced upwards as the screw turns. The defining feature of flexible screw conveyors is their flexibility compared to rigid screw conveyors.

Screw conveyors offer a few advantages over other conveying systems in certain situations. For example, in the conveyance of powdered, granulated or other very fine materials, belt conveyors can be an inappropriate choice; the materials can become ground into the belting, and they can escape the belting and accumulate around other conveyor components, such as rollers. Because screw conveyors completely enclose the materials they convey, and because the only moving part in a screw conveyor is the turning screw, there are fewer opportunities for product loss or equipment damage. Also, screw conveyors can be used to transport materials vertically. Vertical and inclined screw conveyors are common tools in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing and many other industries because they can assist in the loading of raw materials into processing or storage equipment. These conveyors are usually equipped with an inflexible conveyance channel; in most cases, channel flexibility is not a necessary feature. In other cases though, such as in the case of portable screw conveyors, flexibility can make storage and use of screw conveyors easier.

Portable screw conveyors are useful tools in a number of contexts. One prominent example is in agriculture; portable screw conveyors can be used to transport granular materials like harvested grain into storage equipment. Because the screw conveyor equipment is moved from one area to another, and because it is used to load materials into storage equipment of varying shapes and sizes, flexibility of the conveyance channel makes the use of multiple screw conveyors of different sizes unnecessary. Some flexible screw conveyors’ conveyance channels can be adjusted in terms of their incline in a range of up to 90° relative to the ground. Flexibility aside, flexible screw conveyors are no different from other screw conveyor varieties. They are still powered by electric or gas-operated motors, and they are an affordable and effective alternative to other conveyor varieties.
