Flexible screw conveyors utilize an open helix, shaft less auger design where the auger system can be bent along its length. The outer tube of a flex auger is commonly extruded plastic tube or pipe.
Todays flexible screw conveyors are engineered to meet all standard expectations while offering the precision and custom flexibility to handle any powder handling needs. Partnering with an equipment provider that has decades of experience with this type of conveyor is the best way to select the correct options for a particular application.
Flexible screw conveyor operation begins when product enters the sealed tube as the auger rotates (the shape, design style, size, and length of the auger are factors selected for each specific bulk material handling application).
Our FlexFlo Flexible Screw Conveyors are highly efficient and aimed at satisfying the food, chemical, plastic, waste water treatment, mining, brewery and other markets that need to convey bulk materials including powders, flakes, crystals, granules and irregular shape particles.
Design Simplicity. The simplicity of operation is the key element in the Spiroflow flexible spiral conveying system. The electric motor driven spiral, the only moving part, rotates within a sealed tube, moving the materials along by its Archimedean screw action.
AFC Spiralfeeder Flexible Screw Conveyor System AFC Spiralfeeder flexible screw conveyors are designed for efficient, dust tight conveying of powders, granules, flakes, pellets, blends, and a wide range of other bulk solids.
Flexicon flexible screw conveyors (also known as helix conveyors, screw conveyors, spiral conveyors and auger conveyors) offer efficiency and versatility, conveying bulk materials ranging from large pellets to sub micron powdersboth free flowing and non free flowingwith no separation of blended products.
A Flexicon flexible screw conveyor (also known as helix conveyor, screw conveyor, spiral conveyor and auger conveyor) consists of a spring steel or stainless steel flexible screw that is enclosed in a flexible or rigid plastic tube, or a rigid steel tube, and driven by an electric motor normally located at the discharge end of the conveyor.
NBE systems are highly configurable; enabling the design of a flexible screw conveyor, hopper, or combination system that is particular to the requirements of each application. NBE flexible screw conveyors are expertly specified, including material testing, controls, and integration.
