Flexicon Corporation Flexicon Corporation engineers and manufactures a broad range of individual bulk handling equipment, as well as automated bulk-handling/weigh-batching/ blending systems that are fully integrated with new or existing process equipment and storage vessels located throughout the plant. Equipment manufactured by Flexicon handles virtually any bulk material, from large pellets to sub-micron powders, friable, free-flowing and non-free-flowing products, including materials that pack, cake, plug, smear, fluidize or separate. The line includes: Flexible Screw Conveyors, Tubular Cable Conveyors, Pneumatic Conveying Systems, Bulk Bag Unloaders, Bulk Bag Conditioners, Bulk Bag Fillers, Bag Dump Stations, Drum/ Box/Container Dumpers, Weigh Batching and Blending Systems, and Automated Plant-Wide Bulk Handling Systems. Most equipment is available in carbon steel with durable industrial finish, stainless steel in industrial or sanitary finish, or designed and constructed for 3-A certification and USDA acceptance. Engineered automated systems incorporate equipment manufactured by Flexicon as well as packaging ma-chines, blenders, weigh feeders, screeners, crushers, grinders, dryers, coolers, dust collectors, and any other process and storage equipment required --all integrated with your process, guaranteed to perform, and backed by Flexicon. Two types of programmable weigh batching/blending systems are offered: Bulk Bag “Loss-of-Weight” Systems source the material from individual or multiple Bulk Bag Weigh Batch Dischargers, each with load cells, measuring the amount of weight lost as material is discharged directly into a common hopper, blender, conveyor, shipping container or process vessel. “Gain-in-Weight” Batching Systems transport ingredients from silos, manual dumping stations, bulk bag dischargers, process equipment or any other source, measuring the amount of weight gained by one central weigh batching hopper, blender, or other downstream equipment that is mounted on load cells. The company’s 90,000 sq. ft. (8350 sq. m) manufacturing facility and world headquarters is located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA. Approximately 5000 sq. ft. (465 sq. m) of high-ceiling area is dedicated to a state-of-the-art test laboratory where full size equipment and systems are configured to replicate customer installations, enabling the company to run customer-supplied materials and certify equipment performance.
