Flexicon Demonstrates Alternative Bulk Handling Technologies on Stand B16

The versatility of Flexicon flexible screw conveyors and Flexicon pneumatic conveyors are being demonstrated on the company’s stand B16 at this year’s PPMA exhibition.  These highly efficient systems have proven time and time again to be the most practical and effective solution for the easy and reliable transfer of bulk materials such as pellets, fine powders, whether free-flowing, cohesive, problematic or hazardous materials.

Such a major contributor to improving bulk material flow is Flexicon’s flexible screw conveyor, a totally enclosed system preventing contamination of the product and plant as well as preserving the moisture and temperature levels of the materials being conveyed.  As the name implies the Flexicon flexible screw conveyor can move material vertically, horizontally or to any angle – over, under or around obstructions.  During operation the flexible screw self-centres as it rotates and the gently rolling action prevents separation of the blend throughout the entire length of the conveyor.

Generally ideal for bulk materials transfer over longer distances is Flexicon’s Pneumatic-Con dilute phase pneumatic conveying system which is available in a choice of operational platforms – a vacuum system ideal for transporting material from multiple sources such as storage vessels, process equipment, trucks, etc., to multiple destinations and a positive pressure system typically used for conveying from a single source to one or multiple destinations.

On stand B16 Flexicon is also highlighting a number of recent developments including the Single-Trip-Bag unloader, a Bag Compactor and Bulk Bag Conditioner – all an integral part of a range of bulk materials handling systems designed to increase plant efficiency and productivity as well as improving site safety.
