Mobil screw conveyor

March 22, 2003
A national snack food manufacturer recently added new portable flexible screw conveyors to their mixing operation. According to the company's chief engineer, "This new portable Helix conveyor provides complete versatility along with a new ease in sanitary cleanups because of its uniquely angled support frame. Clinging-on of product has been virtually eliminated, making cleanups a breeze. In addition, a rotary agitator and a level sensor with a highly visible low level warning light has been placed on the unit, to help assure uninterrupted production."" Helix conveyors are capable of moving product up to 40 feet vertically or 80 feed horizontally. Because of the flexible casing and auger, conveying around, under or over equipment obstructions is simple.
