Fleixcon sanitary Tubular Cable Conveyor prevents plant contamination

Flexicon has launched a Flexi-Disc sanitary Tubular Cable Conveyor for fragile bulk foods and non-foods and is offering free testing at its laboratory in Pennsylvania, US.

The sanitary conveyor moves bulk material using one-piece polymer discs fixed to polymer-coated 304 or 316 stainless steel cable, that slide within smooth stainless steel tubing.

The discs evacuate the conveyor tubing of material at the end of a conveying cycle, eliminating wasted product. Any material clinging to the cable and disc assembly can be removed during operation by the stiff bristles of a brush box or by a residual return chute with a disc ramp that dislodges material and returns it to the product stream.

Wet or dry cleaning accessories can be attached to the Flexi-Disc cable to sanitize the system, minimising downtime between changeovers, while optional Clean-In-Place systems provide automated sanitising of the system.

Modular system components, including 304 or 316 stainless steel tubing, drive wheel housings, tension wheel housings, metered and non-metered inlets, and discharges with and without valves, can be combined in unlimited configurations to move materials horizontally, vertically or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings.

The sanitary conveyor is offered as a stand-alone system, or fully integrated with upstream and downstream equipment such as inlet hoppers, bag dump stations, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag fillers, drum/box/container tippers, weigh batching/blending systems.
