BULK HANDLING EQUIPMENT & SYSTEMS

COMPARE

Flexicon Flexible Screw Conveyors, Tubular Cable Conveyors and Pneumatic Conveying Systems offer distinct differences in performance relative to specific application requirements. Since many plants convey a variety of bulk materials in a range of capacities over varying distances, a combination of these conveyor types is often recommended to maximize overall performance and return on investment.
