150 Bulk Solid Materials Handled-Image

Whether your bulk material is comprised of large pellets, fine powders or both, flows freely or not at all, has a bulk density of 3 or 300 lbs/cu ft (50 or 5000 kg/cu m), or packs, plugs, cakes, smears, fluidizes, agglomerates, breaks easily or separates, Flexicon has most likely conveyed, fed, discharged, filled, weighed, dumped or otherwise handled it many times before. In fact, moving the most uncooperative bulk materials known to the chemical, paint, food, pharmaceutical and plastics industries has been a Flexicon specialty since 1974.
Examples of Flexicon advances in flow promotion include FLOW-FLEXER® bag activators, POP-TOP™ bag stretching devices, TELE-TUBE® telescoping tubes, POWER-CINCHER® flow control valves, BEV-CON™ conveyors, high flow hoppers, deaeration/densification decks and a host of other components and accessories that promote flow while reducing degradation, dusting and/or the separation of blends comprised of disparate particles.

The ability to move your material efficiently, together with equipment designs and finishes that meet numerous regional and national codes worldwide for chemical, food, dairy and pharmaceutical applications, enables Flexicon to satisfy virtually every aspect of your bulk handling requirement, regardless of material, industry or location worldwide.


Flexicon has been a world leader in the design and manufacture of reliable, high performance bulk handling equipment, custom-engineered and integrated plant-wide systems since 1974.

Our products range from individual equipment to automated systems.  Applications include the conveying, discharging, filling, weighing, blending, and delivery feed of a broad range of powder and bulk solid materials. Our automated systems will source bulk material from interior or exterior plant locations, transport it between process equipment and storage vessels, weigh it, blend it, feed it to packaging lines, extruders, molding machines and storage vessels, and load it into railcars and trailers. 

Flexicon can also custom-engineer automated, plant-wide bulk handling and processing systems that integrate Flexicon equipment with bulk handling and process equipment of other manufacturers. Most equipment is available either in carbon steel with durable industrial finishes, or in stainless steel designed and constructed to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.
