Flexible Screw Conveyor Handles Sluggish Ingredients
By Hapman Conveyors

Kalamazoo, MI -- Hapman now offers a Helix™ flexible screw conveyor specifically designed to ensure food safety when processing sluggish powder and bulk solid ingredients.

Hapman's Helix Hi/Lo flexible screw conveyor now features an optional mass-flow hopper that encourages discharge of sluggish or non-free flowing ingredients without the need for separate in-hopper agitation.

The hopper's steep, conical shape successfully moves challenging materials, such as those with high moisture or fat content. Optional external vibration can be added to assist with material flow.

"The mass-flow hopper eliminates the need to use an agitator, which utilizes seals that require a good deal of attention to clean," says Mike Zeluff, Hapman Helix flexible screw conveyor product manager. "We're pleased to offer food processors an option that helps them ensure their food ingredients are safe while increasing productivity."

The Helix Hi/Lo conveyor's unique design allows a single worker to safely and easily handle washdowns, auger changeouts and servicing from floor level. An electric actuator automatically lowers the auger to an easy-to-access height.

Exclusive T-handle couplings allow disassembly in minutes. In addition, support framing is angled at 45 degrees — or diamond shape — to discourage ingredients and washwater from settling on the conveyor. Stainless steel is utilized for construction with 150 grit sanitary finish. The unit can convey to heights up to 12 ft (3.65 m) and at rates up to 25 cfm.
