Ready to plug-in and run, Flexicon's Twin Tilt-Down Flexible Screw Conveyor can fill two vessels with the same material simultaneously, or convey two different materials. Mounted on a frame with locking casters for in-plant mobility, it can be utilized in multiple locations, and rolled to a wash-down booth.

Each four cubic foot (113 liter) hopper is equipped with grates capable of supporting a 250 lb. bag of material, level sensors, and mechanical agitator assemblies to promote flow into the conveyor inlets.

The two BEV-CON conveyors are engineered to move dry bulk solids efficiently without product degradation, especially non-free-flowing materials that pack, cake, smear, fluidize, compress, or are otherwise problematic to convey. The screws are the only moving parts contacting material and are driven beyond the point at which material is discharged, eliminating wear and contamination related to product contacting seals and bearings.

Discharge housings of the conveyors are supported by dual motorized booms that cantilever from the mobile base, allowing discharge of material into processing equipment or storage vessels. The support boom and conveyor assembly can be tilted down to maneuver through standard doorways and aisles, and around corners for use anywhere in the plant.

The system is constructed to 3-A standards, and features sanitary quick-release clean out caps, quick-disconnect discharge box access covers, and wash-down motors.

The stainless NEMA 4X control panel allows operation of either or both conveyors. HMI controls allow manual and automatic start/stop, reverse, and variable speed adjustment.
