Flexicon Corporation has expanded manufacturing space at its headquarters in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, by 50,000 sq. ft. (4,645 sq. m.) to meet increased demand for its bulk handling equipment and systems.
Flexicon has introduced a new base model 1450 flexible screw conveyor with 4-1/2 inch (114 mm) O.D. polymer conveyor tube and low cost carbon steel floor hopper and discharge housing. Round, square, flat or beveled flexible screws in any length from 10 to 40 feet (3 to 12 m) are offered to convey virtually any free- and non-free-flowing bulk material including products that pack, cake, seize, smear or break apart.
Flexicon Corporation has been granted a waiver by the State of Pennsylvania to continue operating during the COVID-19 outbreak due to its role in the supply chain for life-sustaining businesses, it was announced by David Gill, president.
