The sanitary Tubular Cable Conveyor for fragile bulk foods and non-foods allows rapid wash down of the system between production runs. The sanitary conveyor moves bulk material using high-strength, one-piece polymer discs affixed to polymer-coated 304 or 316 stainless steel cable, that slide within smooth stainless steel tubing, moving fragile products gently, quietly and dust-free. The discs evacuate the conveyor tubing of material at the conclusion of a conveying cycle, virtually eliminating wasted product. Any material clinging to the cable and disc assembly can be continually removed during operation by the stiff bristles of a brush box or by a residual return chute equipped with a disc ramp that dislodges material and returns it to the product stream. All material outlets, inlets and tubing are fabricated of 304 or 316 stainless steel with quick-disconnect covers and continuous welds ground smooth and flush with contiguous walls polished up to mirror finish. Wet or dry cleaning accessories can be quickly attached to the FLEXI-DISC cable to allow rapid, thorough sanitizing of the system, minimizing downtime between changeovers, while optional Clean-In-Place systems provide automated sanitizing of the system.
The sanitary conveyor is offered as a stand-alone system, or fully integrated with upstream and downstream equipment such as inlet hoppers, bag dump stations, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag fillers, drum/box/container dumpers, weigh batching/blending systems, screeners, filling machines and storage vessels manufactured by Flexicon and others.
