Materials can be rendered non-free flowing due to a variety of factors, including irregular particle shapes, the presence of fats or oils, static attraction, or moisture absorption. When conveyed, these materials may tend to agglomerate into larger masses that can impede flow and create erratic throughput.
Successfully conveying non-free flowing materials requires not only conveying equipment designed for the job, but the accumulated experience and expertise of a proven equipment supplier such as UniTrak. Examples of non-free flowing materials that our equipment handles include the following:

Powderflight aeromechanical conveyors operate on a simple principle. Within a steel tube, a wire rope with evenly spaced discs travels at high speed, running in sprockets at each end of the conveyor. As material is fed in, the air stream aerates or fluidizes it and carries it to the outlet, where it is discharged by centrifugal force.
UniFlex flexible screw conveyors are an excellent choice for the intermittent conveying of free-flowing bulk materials. With only one moving part, UniFlex conveyors offer dependable service. Discover how a UniFlex flexible screw conveyor can move your product in less time, less space, and with less cost.
