Product Challenges: Segregation Segregation results when the particles separate because of the differences in their density, shape or size. Segregation can result upon handling a blend of powders or bulk solids which have varying particle sizes. To avoid segregation the product must be mixed and blended during conveying and unloading so the particles become homogenized. Why does […]
Spiroflow’s Hygienic Flexible Screw Conveyor (FSC) inherently ensures material is constantly being remixed while the sanitary design protects against contamination issues. Spiroflow’s housing design eliminates material trap zones and the hygienic standoff prevents contamination of the product by separating the drive system from the material in the event of a leakage. Discover how this application is an ideal solution for hygienic conveying […]
