FLEXIBLE SCREW CONVEYORS
— both free-flowing and non-free-flowing — with no separation of blended products.
WHO IS FLEXICON?
Flexicon Corporation is a world leader in design and manufacture of bulk handling equipment
and custom-engineered and integrated plant-wide systems.
Flexicon Corporation is a world leader in the design and manufacture of bulk handling equipment and custom-engineered and integrated plant-wide systems. Flexicon products range from individual equipment to automated systems that source bulk material from interior and exterior plant locations, transport it between process equipment and storage vessels, weigh it, blend it, feed it to packaging lines, extruders, molding machines and storage vessels, and load it into railcars and trailers.
Flexicon can also custom-engineer automated, plant-wide bulk handling and processing systems that integrate Flexicon equipment with bulk handling and process equipment of other manufacturers.
Move virtually any bulk material
Flexicon flexible screw conveyors (also known as helix conveyors, screw conveyors, spiral conveyors and auger conveyors) offer efficiency and versatility, conveying bulk materials ranging from large pellets to sub-micron powders—both free-flowing and non-free-flowing—with no separation of blended products.
Handle friable materials gently, efficiently, dust-free
FLEXI-DISC® Tubular Cable Conveyors (also known as Disc Conveyors and Drag Conveyors) gently slide bulk materials through smooth stainless steel tubing using low-friction polymer discs attached to stainless steel cable.
Flexicon BULK-OUT® Bulk Bag Dischargers (also known as FIBC, Big Bag and Jumbo Bag unloaders) are offered in numerous frame configurations. The two most popular are BFF Series dischargers with bag lifting frame for forklift loading and unloading of bulk bags, and BFC Series dischargers with cantilevered I-beam, electric hoist and trolley for loading and unloading of bulk bags without the use of a forklift.
Flexicon BLOCK-BUSTER® Hydraulic Bulk Bag Conditioners (also known as FIBC, Big Bag and Jumbo Bag Massagers) loosen bulk solid materials that have solidified during storage and shipment, enabling bulk bag unloaders to discharge the material through bag spouts.
Models to fit every application.
Flexicon bulk bag fillers (also known as FIBC, Big Bag and Jumbo Bag Fillers) range from basic stand-alone units to sophisticated systems to match the budget and capacity requirements of each customer's application. Each of these configurations delivers optimum performance across specific capacity ranges with maximum cost-effectiveness.
Reverse-pulse filter cleaning for continuous operation
Collect dust efficiently.
Flexicon bag dump stations (also known as manual dumping stations) collect dust generated when dumping powder and bulk solids from bags, boxes, drums, and other containers, and return the material to the hopper.
The system reduces material waste and eliminates the need to clean a remote dust collection site, while protecting workers and preventing plant contamination.
Sealed or open-chute dumping of bulk materials from drums, boxes and other containers
Flexicon's dust-free TIP-TITE® Container Dumpers and Open-Chute Container Dumpers (also known as Container Tippers) accommodate popular sizes of drums, boxes and other containers used for storage and shipment of bulk solid materials.
Move virtually any bulk material, from any upstream source, to any downstream destination
Whether you are sourcing material from bulk bags, silos, manual dumping stations, process equipment or all of the above; weigh batching one ingredient or 50; blending your recipe; filling containers, and/or delivering it to process vessels, packaging lines, or any other destination, Flexicon has the comprehensive selection of equipment you need for a total weigh batching solution.
Mechanical and Pneumatic Conveyors Both Prove Best for
New "Chocolate Dodger" Process at Burton's Biscuit
Burton's Biscuit Co., a leading U.K. producer of biscuits and snack products, is best known for their "Jammie Dodger" sandwich made of two shortbread biscuits with jam in the centre.

Bulk Handling Systems Ups Efficiency, Sanitation & Quality for Dry Milk Solids Producer
Franklin Farms East is a major east coast producer of dry milk and non-dairy food products used in the production of commercial baked goods, ice creams and confectionary products. In 2008, the company partnered with The Flexicon Corporation to enhance their production capabilities. Flexicon designed and supplied a bulk
bag discharging system and bag dump station to improve the cleanliness and increase output of its increasingly diversified product line while simultaneously elevating product quality.
Automated Cornmeal Unloading System Improves Product Quality with 7 Month ROI
Snyder of Berlin improved yield by 4.5%, along with sanitation, safety, product quality, and accuracy in introducing cornmeal into the packaging line when it replaced manual dumping of 100-lb bags and conveying with two galvanized steel augers with an automated bulk bag unloader and three flexible screw conveyors from Flexicon Corporation.
