Conveyor can function in tight spaces
Low-profile flexible screw conveyor Flexicon has added to its portfolio of conveyors with this new low-profile unit that features a caster-mounted frame that can roll below mezzanines and other tight spaces. The conveyor’s integral bin can accommodate the contents of several 50-pound bags. All of the conveyor’s contact surfaces are made of stainless steel.
What’s new? The low-profile design, which Flexicon introduced in late spring.
Benefits Compact design, and the ability to move bulk materials that tend to pack, cake and smear, as well as fragile products prone to breakage. With a drive system positioned at its lower intake, the conveyor is about 2 feet shorter than conveyors that have drive systems positioned at the upper discharge end.
