Flexicon Corporation is a world leader in the design and manufacture of bulk handling equipment and custom-engineered and integrated plant-wide systems that transport, discharge, fill, weigh, blend, deliver and/or feed a broad range of powder and bulk solid materials. Flexicon products range from individual equipment to automated systems that source bulk material from interior and exterior plant locations, transport it between process equipment and storage vessels, weigh it, blend it, feed it to packaging lines, extruders, molding machines and storage vessels, and load it into railcars and trailers.
Flexicon Corporation is now offering its FLEXI-DISC™ line of Tubular Cable Conveyors for fragile materials, integrated with upstream and/or downstream equipment that sources material from single or multiple locations and delivers it selectively to storage vessels, filling machines or other processing equipment. All equipment is factory-tested for seamless integration with the conveyor and the user's process.The FLEXI-DISC™ conveyor moves material using high-strength polymer discs in 4 in. (10 cm) and 6 in. (15 cm) diameters that are affixed to a stainless steel or galvanized cable. The discs glide within smooth stainless steel tubing, moving fragile products gently, quietly and dust-free, horizontally, vertically or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings. The system can have single or multiple inlets and outlets, and convey over short distances or hundreds of feet/meters. Modular system components of 304 or 316 stainless steel include tubing, drive wheel housings, tension wheel housings, metered and non-metered inlets, and discharges with and without valves, as well as accessories for wet or dry cleaning, including CIP sanitizing.
Simultaneously weighs up to seven major ingredients received in bulk bags and unlimited minor ingredients received in 50 lb (23 kg) sacks, pails or boxes, and conveys weighed batches to a downstream blender that feeds a bulk bag filler and a paper sack filling machine
