AERO-FLEX flexible conveying systems are engineered to transport most dry bulk materials at a reduced cost. They convey powders and granular material without separation of product.

The Aero-Flex system utilizes a stainless steel or carbon steel one-piece helix, which is enclosed within a stationary plastic tubing, for transferring material from its feed hopper to the discharge point, quickly and efficiently.
