Flexible screw conveyor - Mechanical flexible screw to avoid obstacles
The flexible screw is used to carry powders, granules or pellets.
Because of the high rotational speeds (of about 900 rpm), this type of screw can not convey fragile products and cannot be operated when not loaded.
The flexible screw is used to carry powders, granules or pellets. The compatibility of materials conveyed must be validated by PALAMATIC PROCESS. By their mode of operation and design, these screws impose specific implementation recommendations. The advantages of the flexible screw are its compact size and its flexibility of installation.
Flexible screw conveyor range :
|Flexible conveyors models||37||44||55||67||80||90|
|Capacity in kg/h.||100||400||800||2,000||5,000||7,000|
|Minimum bending radius in meters*||2||2.5||3||4||5.5||7.|
|Tube : int. Ø X ext. Ø in mm||37 x 43||44 x 51||55 x 63||67 x 80||80 x 90||90 x 100|
Note: the rates obtained depend on the density and characteristics of the product as well as the length and elevation of the screw.
* The specificities of implementation and screws curvatures must be validated by the engineering PALAMATIC PROCESS design office.
- Tube manufactured in semi-rigid polyamid with excellent abrasion resistance, vibration absorption and certified for food products.
- Flexibility of the conveyor which goes around above, below or laterally any machine already in place.
- Protection Protection against environmental moisture: ideal for dehydrated or dried products.
- Easy maintenance to remove residual material from the conveyor by rotating the device in the other direction.

In configurations with long conveying screw lengths, a guardrail must be provided at the screw conveyor end to enable the spiral to be released.
Semi-rigid polyamide tube with excellent abrasion resistance, good vibration absorbance and certified for food bulk materials.
Screw conveyor with polyamide tube and stainless steel spiral.
Moisture protection: ideal for dehydrated or dried bulk materials.
The flexibility of the industrial flexible conveyor means that any machine already in operation can be avoided from above, below or laterally.

Flexible screw conveyor
Due to the high rotational speeds, this type of screw conveyor does not allow the conveying of fragile materials and its empty rotation.
Flexible screw conveyor powder processing
Perfect for the transportation of various food products such as flour, wheat or corn and larger granules for larger diameters.
Big bag filling system with flexible screw conveyor
This system consists of a 2-metre long POLYAMIDE tube and a 304 L stainless steel spiral, welded and passivated.
|Manufacturing||Axis in stainless steel and tube in polyamid|
|Conveying rate||100 to 7 000 liters/h|
|Slope||0 to 6 meters|
|Offset||1 to 20 meters|
|Conveying tube||Ø 37 to 90 mm|
On configurations with long lengths of screws, a siding must be provided at the bottom of the screw to allow the loosening of the axis.
