Company: Flexicon Corp., Bethlehem, PA
Equipment Snapshot: Flexicon Corp. offers a FLEXI-DISC sanitary tubular cable conveyor for fragile bulk foods and nonfoods that can be quickly washed down between production runs. The sanitary conveyor moves bulk material using high-strength, one-piece polymer discs affixed to polymer-coated 304 or 316 stainless steel cable that slide within smooth stainless steel tubing, moving fragile products gently, quietly and dust-free. The discs evacuate the conveyor tubing of material at the conclusion of a conveying cycle, virtually eliminating wasted product. Any material clinging to the cable and disc assembly can be continually removed during operation by a brush box or a residual return chute equipped with a disc ramp. All material outlets, inlets and tubing are fabricated of 304 or 316 stainless steel. The unit is available as a standalone system or fully integrated with upstream and downsream equipment.
