Flexible screw conveyors in popular sizes are now available for shipment in two to five days as ready-to-assemble packages with Flexicon’s Quick-Ship Program, the company announced.

The conveyors can transport a broad range of bulk materials from large pellets to sub-micron powders, including friable products and materials prone to pack, cake, bind or smear, with no separation of blends. Depending on screw geometry selected, material can be conveyed at any angle from horizontal to vertical, in a straight or curved path, through small holes in walls or ceilings. Also included as standard are a stainless steel floor hopper, 45 or 90 degree discharge adapter, TEFC or wash-down duty motor, and UL Listed NEMA 4 control panel.

Conveyor tubes and screws offered through the program are supplied in any length from 3 to 12 m, in diameters from 67 to 115 mm OD. All product contact surfaces are of stainless steel with the exception of the polymer conveyor tube. Non-product contact surfaces are of carbon steel construction with durable industrial finish.

Stainless steel screws are supplied in a range of geometries matched to the material being conveyed. Options include a hopper flow promotion device, hopper cover with unflanged inlet port, hopper screen and NEMA 4 low-level sensor.
