Flexicon Flexi-Disc tubular cable conveyor system

Wednesday, 08 January, 2014 | Supplied by: Flexicon Corporation (Australia) Pty Limited



Flexicon has expanded its Flexi-Disc line of tubular cable conveyors with the addition of a 15 cm diameter system, which more than doubles the capacity of the company’s 10 cm diameter conveyor.

The conveyor is designed for the gentle transfer of friable materials including beans, cereals, coffee, dried fruits, frozen vegetables, grains, nuts, pet foods, seeds, snack foods, spices and teas.

Low-friction, high-strength polymer discs slide materials gently and dust free through smooth stainless steel tubing, which can be routed horizontally, vertically or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings and over long or short distances.

The system can be configured with single or multiple inlets that are metered and/or non-metered, and discharges that are valved or open. The cable-disc assembly is pulled through the tubing circuit by a drive wheel at one end of the circuit, and kept taut by an automatic cable tensioner at the opposite end of the circuit.

All housings and ancillary metallic components are of 304 or 316 stainless steel with continuous welds ground and polished to food, pharmaceutical or industrial standards.

In addition to galvanised cable, discs are available affixed to stainless steel and nylon-encapsulated stainless steel cable for sanitary applications. Wet or dry cleaning accessories can be quickly attached to the cable to minimise downtime between changeovers, while clean-In-place (CIP) accessories allow automated sanitising of the system.

The conveyor is offered as a stand-alone system in unlimited layouts, and/or pre-engineered and integrated with upstream and downstream equipment.
