The Flex-Turn® range offers choices of size, belt width and configuration, providing a turn conveyor to suit almost every situation. Turns through 90° or 180° are standard, though other angles from 45° to 180° are available.

Our Flex-Turn® conveyors are available with three different belt supports:

  • The Series 600 Flex-Turn® conveyor is an open, stainless steel framed turn conveyor with polyethylene belt supports. This open structure allows for the easy removal of debris, and facilitates washing and draining.
  • The Series 700 Flex-Turn® conveyor has a solid polyethylene top. This prevents the product from falling through, or becoming entangled with the strands of the belt.
  • The Series 800 Flex-Turn® conveyor has a solid stainless steel top, with stainless steel running rails. This option is particularly suited in some meat processing situations.

With a total of thirteen different sizes of belt, and a range of angles between 45° to 180°, there is a Flex-Turn® conveyor for almost every application. Our standard drive motors and controllers are supplied with IP66 enclosure protection and OS2 surface protection to ensure suitability for intensive wash down processes. If required, customer specified drive systems can be fitted to suit each individual application.

A variable-frequency drive (VFD) can be fitted alongside the drive motor to provide a stop/start function and speed control.  As standard, this is housed inside our Standard Conveyor Control Panel, featuring a fully stainless steel enclosure and emergency stop button.  Alternatively, an invertek E3 Optidrive controller can be supplied with plastic enlosure and no emergency stop function.

As standard, Flex-Turn® Conveyors are supplied with height adjustable footpads with fixing holes.  As an optional extra, Flex-Turn® Conveyors can be supplied with lockable, swivel castors with brakes.
