Flexicon introduces Flexi-Disc tubular cable conveyors
July 10, 2013 – A new Flexi-Disc line of tubular cable conveyors for the gentle transfer of friable food and non-food products has been introduced by Flexicon Corporation. The conveyor moves material using high-strength polymer discs, affixed to a stainless steel or galvanized cable, that slide within smooth stainless steel tubing, moving fragile products gently, quietly and dust-free, horizontally, vertically or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings, says the company. The system can have single or multiple inlets and outlets, and convey over short distances or hundreds of feet/meters. Modular system components in 304 or 316 stainless steel include tubing, drive wheel housings, tension wheel housings, metered and non-metered inlets, and discharges with and without valves, as well as accessories for wet or dry cleaning, including CIP sanitizing. The conveyor is offered as a stand-alone system, or fully integrated with upstream and downstream equipment.
