Flexible Screw Conveyors

Often used by processors in the food industry, Spiroflow Flexible Screw Conveyors (FSCs) provide dust free, low energy, low maintenance and low cost conveying solutions.  FSCs provide gentle handling and constant remixing of the conveyor contents.  Constant mixing is an interesting advantage of this type of conveyor.  A centre-less auger rotates within a sealed tube and the speed and helical action of the screw encourage the product in the conveyor to rotate with the screw with each particle in motion.  This creates a constant tumbling effect that provides a homogenous mix of particles in the conveyor and is essential when feeding pre-mixed ingredients to packaging or process machines.  It is also possible to use this type of conveyor as an ingredient mixer by adding a second product inlet onto a conveyor.  A controlled feed will provide a proportional ingredient mixture.  Spiroflow engineers can recommend the conveyor size, screw section and speed recommended for your application.
