Spiroflow will be showcasing its latest bulk handling and conveying equipment, designed to uphold the most rigid standards in hygiene and containment.

Transferring food powders and granules from one area of a factory to another for packaging and distribution requires a system that is fast, easy to route, has few moving parts, empties product with minimum residue and provides a dust-tight operation essential when dealing with potentially combustible material.

A highlight will be a working flexible screw conveyor along with a bulk bag discharger, ideal for the hygienic discharging and distribution of food ingredients, including sugar, flour and spices, within a factory environment. Installation and maintenance of the system is said to be simple. It can transport powdered, granular and flaked materials with a bulk density up to 2.5kg/m3 to a maximum distance of 20m, although multiple units can extend the distance moved.

All of Spiroflow’s conveying and bulk handling equipment adhere to the EU’s ATEX Directive 1999/92/E, implemented by the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) act in the UK.
