Convey bulk materials from large granules to submicron powders
Flexible screw conveyors (also known as spiral conveyor or flex auger conveyor) are typically used to move materials between bulk bag dischargers, storage vessels, manual bag dump (sack tip) or drum dump stations, screeners, crushers, blenders, reactors, packaging equipment, injection molding and extrusion machines, and other process equipment.
Only one moving part—the stainless or carbon steel screw auger—contacts the material in a UniTrak flexible screw conveyor. The material is never in contact with bearings or seals because our simple, durable design has no need of the filters, internal bearings, cyclone separators, and other moving parts required by rigid augers, drag chains or pneumatic conveyors.
No filters or bearings. Nothing to trap particles or breed contamination. At the intake end of the conveyor tube a removable cleanout cap allows your operator to quickly empty and flush the tube. Simply remove the cleanout cap and reverse rotation to evacuate any residual material. The screw auger and outer tube can also be removed for thorough cleaning.
