Mechanical Conveyors

Your Lee Process Equipment expert will select the best mechanical conveyors and flexible screw conveyors for your operation. Even more, they will utilize the superior conveying products from Spiroflow, MIXSYS and Lecorp.

FLEXIBLE SCREW CONVEYORS

First of all, Spiroflow Flexible Screw Conveyors are extremely versatile and can convey in any direction. Certainly, this includes from horizontal to vertical, routed around fixed obstacles and equipment, and from one room to another. Also, they are ideal for lifting materials from bag dump stations or storage bins. Also, they are excellent conveying products at ceiling height to feed a line of processing or packaging machines – as multiple discharge points can be placed along horizontal sections.

Furthermore, Spiroflow’s Flexible Screw Conveyors inherently ensure material is constantly being remixed.  So this is accomplished through the action of the rotating spiral – effectively eliminating the risk of product segregation. Certainly Flexible Screw Conveyors are also an extremely cost effective method of conveying dry bulk solids and ingredients.

Also the discs are made from a variety of materials including steel and cast iron. Certainly these drag chain conveyors are suitable for applications with temperatures up to 420°F/216°C.

FEATURES

  • Ultra-heavy-duty conveying
  • Gentle handling of fragile materials
  • Maintain blends
  • Totally enclosed for dust and contamination-free handling
