Flexicon’s sanitary mobile tilt-down flexible screw conveyor with integral bag dump station and compactor allows the transfer of material manually dumped from handheld bags into elevated process equipment, and the disposal of empty bags.

Mounted on a mobile frame with locking casters and a fold-down step, the bag dump station is secured to the floor hopper with quick-release clamps, and features a gasketed bag disposal chute through the side wall of the hopper hood, allowing the operator to pass empty bags directly into the bag compactor.

The hopper discharges into an enclosed, 15 feet (4.6 metres) flexible screw conveyor that handles a broad range of materials including free- and non-free-flowing bulk solids ranging from large pellets to sub-micron powders, including products that pack, cake, seize, smear, fluidize, or crumble, with no separation of blended products.

The system is available in carbon steel with durable industrial coating, with stainless steel material contact surfaces, or in all-stainless steel finished to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.
