Flexicon Corporation: Flexicon Corporation: Weigh batching system
A new Flexicon Weigh Batching System designed for mezzanines and other low-headroom areas uses Low Profile Flexible Screw Conveyors configured with motor drives at the inlet end of the conveyor, reducing height and width requirements at the discharge end.
System is comprised of 8 low-profile conveyors fed by roof-mounted storage vessels with each group of 4 conveyors feeding either of 2 gain-in-weight hoppers that gravity discharge through the mezzanine level to a ribbon blender at floor level. The enclosed dust-free conveyors handle products ranging from sub-micron powders to large pellets including those that pack cake plug seize smear or fluidize with no separation of blended products. Removable screw and tube interior are smooth and crevice-free allowing for rapid thorough cleaning.
