Flexible Screw Conveyors

For dry bulk solids and ingredients

Saturn's Flexible Screw Conveyors can convey in any direction from horizontal to vertical, routed around fixed obstacles and equipment, and from one room to another. They are ideal for lifting materials from bag dump stations or storage bins and conveying products at ceiling height to feed a line of processing or packaging machines - as multiple discharge points can be placed along horizontal sections.

Saturn's Flexible Screw Conveyors inherently ensure material is constantly being remixed.  This is accomplished through the action of the rotating spiral - effectively eliminating the risk of product segregation.  Flexible Screw Conveyors are also an extremely cost effective method of conveying dry bulk solids and ingredients!

Flexible screw conveyor systems are capable of

  • Preventing demixing, during conveyance, of mixed and batched products
  • Homogenizing during transportation
  • Capable of Conveying several combinations
  • Quiet operation
  • Being introduced into existing systems
  • Capability of Loading and unloading at any point of the line
  • Overcoming significant vertical drops and covering substantial distances

Design Features

  • Flexible pipe suitable for the conveyed material
  • Rotary spiral in carbon or stainless steel thermally treated in round, rectangular or squared sections depending on the applications
  • Easy removal of the drive and/or reduction gear.
  • Protections against product infiltration made up of static and dynamic seal rings: special protections are designed for particular applications.
  • Variation of the spiral rotation speed by means of gear motor and inverter or with an adjustable mechanical motor
  • Easy cleaning system through gates located at the pick up and unloading positions of the conveyor and possibility, when necessary, of reversing the direction of rotation of the spiral.
  • The system can be ordered with carbon or stainless steel construction.
