When the plant engineer at Norvatis Health Care Facility needed a sanitary conveying system that was both portable and capable of unloading their custom blended materials from their existing mixer…..He contacted AFC for a solution!
“Our custom blended materials can be different from batch to batch including variables in the bulk density and material flow characteristics. We need a conveying system that can handle all of our products in addition to being portable and easily cleaned between batches.”
The AFC engineered system included our new Hi-Flo Model # 45 Spiralfeeder conveyor to address the required conveying rate of up to 6000 lbs. per hour in combination with our low profile “True-Flow hopper. The hopper incorporates a motorized agitator and pneumatic vibrator for the less flowable material blends. The portable chassis which supports the entire conveyor assembly is constructed from tubular polished structural tubing and mounted on four 6” diameter sanitary casters to provide mobility.
Electrical controls are factory mounted and pre-wired. Main control enclosure is rated Nema 4X (wash-down) and UL approved. This includes an AC variable frequency motor speed control which can be operated at the control box or via the provided remote (cable) foot switch/control. OSHA approved safety switches are provided at all access covers in addition to a sanitary hopper safety grate.
System has the provisions for either manual or automatic operation via a low level sensor located in the feed hopper.
Quick disconnect sanitary ferrules are provided for system inspection and/or cleaning. For more information…please contact AFC
