Flexicon Corporation: Flexicon Corporation: Sanitary conveyor
The 3-A sanitary conveyor from Flexicon is designed for bulk foods, pharmaceuticals, dairy products, and other contamination-sensitive materials.
A coupling design specific to the 3-A unit positioned beyond the point at which material exits the discharge spout eliminates the potential of contamination while allowing quick disconnection of the screw from the motor drive for wash down. The only moving part contacting material is a flexible inner screw that self-centers as it rotates providing clearance between itself and the tube wall and creating a gentle rolling action said to prevent the separation of blended materials.
