Case Study: Helix® Flexible Screw Conveyor Feeds Innovative Tubular Form, Fill and Seal Packaging Solution
A packaging equipment supplier needs a low-cost, reliable conveying solution to keep his innovative form-fill-seal solution demonstrating at capacity.
Case Study: Helix® is the Top Choice for Specialty Dry Bulk Food Company
Guixens Food Group, located in Tampa, Fla., needed a single conveyor for their new facility that could handle material bulk densities ranging from ultra-fine corn flour to fragile dry beans. Having used Hapman’s Helix flexible screw conveyor in their Miami facility for years, the company approached Hapman for help in streamlining their process with a cost-effective conveyor that’s simple to use, easy to clean, and has the operational capabilities to convey a vast array of materials.

A casting foundry wanted to create a cleaner, more efficient environment that was also safe for workers.
Application Review: Portable Bulk Bag Unloading - Chemical Company Charging Hoppers with Limestone Combining with Helix® Flexible Screw Conveyor
A chemical company had to periodically charge their holding hoppers with ground limestone. Due to the number of hoppers and their infrequent need for charging they did not feel that it was going to be cost effective to purchase a bulk bag unloader for each one.
Application Review: Sweets Manufacturer Batching from Standard and Bulk Bags
A major manufacturer of sweets required a highly versatile system to convey and accurately weigh batches for mixing and discharge into a hopper before final processing into their calcium food supplement.
Application Review: Snack Food Producer with One Conveyor for Many Jobs - Portable Hi/Lo Helix® Flexible Screw Conveying System
One of the nation's largest producers of snack foods required a way to quickly clean the conveyor in between batches. It also required the ability to move the conveyor from location to location.
White Paper: Mixing Solutions and Slurries - Effectively and Economically Safely
A perpetual challenge in the chemical industry has been finding an ideal way to effectively mix solids and liquids to create optimal slurry – and at the same time, utilizing the least amount of floor space, energy and human resources.

Increasing Conveyor Performance and Efficiency
Due to their relatively low cost and simple construction, flexible screw conveyors are one of the most common types of conveyors used by manufacturers. The reason for this is that the screw is the only part of the conveyor that moves. The only other major components are the tubular housing, and the electric motor that drives the screw (also called the auger).
Tech Brief: Selecting A Conveyor for Effectively Moving Bulk Materials
Selecting a conveyor for a bulk material handling application is not always as straight forward as one might think. Moving material consistently, at a rate that is inline with production requirements, and in a manner that does not contribute negatively to the plant operating environment; such as dusting or increased maintenance, can be a challenging endeavor for process engineers and procurement personnel.
Tech Brief: Top Equipment Design Considerations for Handling Bulk Chemical Powders
Successful conveying and handling of chemical powders requires much more input than understanding a material’s properties, the desired convey rate and distance. Today’s manufacturers are faced with tighter margins, leaner operations, shorter lead times and greater environmental concerns. Maintaining plant and worker safety is paramount.
