Original Press Release:

Low-Profile Flexible Screw Conveyor Rolls Under Mezzanines, Discharges Anywhere

BETHLEHEM, PA - A new Low Profile Flexible Screw Conveyor with integral bin and caster-mounted frame can roll below mezzanines and other low-headroom areas, receive material from overhead equipment, and discharge the material into process equipment and vessels throughout the plant.

Ready to plug-in and run, the self-contained unit features a "push type" drive system positioned at the lower intake end of the conveyor, versus a standard "pull-type" drive positioned at the upper discharge end of the conveyor, reducing overall height by approximately 2 ft (610 mm).

At 9 cu ft (250ℓ), the integral bin accommodates the contents of approximately one-third of a bulk bag measuring 3 x 3 x 3 ft (1 x 1 x 1 m), or several typical 50 lb (23 kg) bags, depending on bulk density.

A specialized BEV-CON™ screw within the straight conveyor tube is engineered to move a range of difficult-to-convey bulk materials that tend to cake, pack, smear or plug, as well as fragile products prone to breakage, with no separation of blends.

With the exception of the polymer tube, all material contact surfaces are of stainless steel finished to food, pharmaceutical, dairy or industrial standards for rapid wash down and/or corrosion resistance. 

The company also manufactures bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag fillers, pneumatic conveying systems, tubular cable conveyors, manual dumping stations, drum/box/container dumpers, weigh batching systems, and automated plant-wide systems integrated with new or existing process equipment.
