industry innovations Tablets & Capsules September 2020 43 Screw conveyor Model 1450 flexible screw conveyor handles free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials including products that pack, cake, seize, smear, or break apart. Unit accepts 10- to 40-foot-long flexible screws with square, flat, or beveled profiles. During operation, the only moving product- contact part is the inner screw, which self-centers as it rotates, providing ample space between the screw and tube wall to minimize or eliminate grinding. Lower end of the screw requires no bearing while the upper end is driven beyond the point of discharge, preventing material contact with bearings or seals. Screw's gentle rolling action prevents blend separation and the fully enclosed, polymer conveyor tube prevents product and plant contamination. Features include a carbon-steel floor hopper, discharge housing, an optional UL-listed start-stop control panel, and a range of flow-aid devices. Flexicon, Bethlehem, PA 610 814 2400 SUBSCRIBE TODAY
