Noida Fabcon Machines Pvt. Ltd.
offers Flexible Screw Conveyor (FSC), which is
generally used in processing of food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals,
minerals, ceramics, plastic and rubber.
design of the conveyor is very simple and eliminates the
need for any additional operating equipment such as filters
or bearing. It consists of electric motor driven spiral,
which is the only moving part that rotates within a food
grade and sealed tube. The material moves along the spiral
within the tube. The unique action of the flexible spiral
conveyor eliminates the risk of the product separation that
can take place in conventional pneumatic conveying systems,
where mixed materials have components of different densities
and particle size. In fact, the conveying action ensures
Conveyor maximum length can be upto 15 meters for material
bulk density 0.6 kg/ litre and may be increased or decreased
inversely with bulk density. Vertical installation is also
possible, but carrying capacity decreases with increase
in angle of inclination. Feed hopper is available in standard
size or according to customer's specification.
The conveyor is available in options of stainless steel
or mild steel / painted. Its spirals are used for every
application in different shapes i.e. round- for most applications,
flat- for fine powder, proscrew- for difficult material.
The main features include dust free, easy to clean, high
& low level control, safe & hygienic handling, accurate
metering and high transfer capacity. The main advantage
is that the installation and maintenance costs are low and
the efficiency and performance is comparatively higher.
“The conveyor has become a necessary mode of transfer
for easy conveying of powders & granules where controlled
flow is required,” says Nishant Bansal from Fabcon.
“The different sizes of conveyor are suitable for
any capacity upto15 tons per hour and any length from 2-15
meters per conveyor. Distribution of product at more than
one outlet is also possible,” he conveys The flexible
nature of conveyor allows bends to be incorporated while
installing the conveyor and the same can be managed through
walls and roofs with minimal problem to the existing layout.
Many successful installations at companies like ITC, Haldirams,
Nestle, Unilever, P&G and Pyrotek have been done for
different products like flour, grits, chemicals, sugar and
