The laboratory features separate 10cm and 15cm diameter tubular cable conveyor circuits with drive systems and tensioners, both of which can be demonstrated as standalone systems.
Both circuits are also configured with metered and non-metered inlet adapters, and valved and full-flow discharges that allow for rapid connection to a variety of full size upstream and downstream bulk handling equipment also produced by the company.
“The diversity of interchangeable equipment enables Flexicon to simulate customer installations and verify system performance using the customer’s actual material which, together with Flexicon’s lifetime performance guarantee, takes the risk and guesswork out of ordering these systems,” says Flexicon president David Gill.
Full size equipment that can be integrated with the conveyors includes inlet hoppers, bag dump stations, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag fillers, drum/box/container tippers, weigh batching/blending systems, screeners, filling machines and storage vessels manufactured by Flexicon and others.
Using customer-supplied bulk materials, engineers and laboratory technicians verify system performance prior to final equipment design and fabrication.
