Flex-Line® Low Friction Linings Solutions

Chutes, hoppers, bins, bunkers, silos, vibratory feeders, slider beds, conveyor skirting, drag conveyors, dragline buckets, front end loader and excavator buckets, off / on-road tipper truck bodies, railcars, dust collectors, cyclones & many more.

Bulk materials don’t always flow reliably. They compact, rat-hole and arch and results can be costly. Production shuts down. Work hours are wasted and safety is compromised. But you can achieve mass flow and get your business moving again.

 

Problems that are frequently encountered involve:

  • Erratic flow

  • Flooding of feeder interface

  • Blockages and rat-holing

  • Mechanical and cohesive arching

  • Product segregation

  • Product degradation

  • Lack of storage capacity

  • Structural failure

 

The Flex-Line® Solution

Flex-line® High Performance Low Friction Linings. Flex-line® low surface friction promotes flow of cohesive, non-free-flowing bulk materials. Its unique surface permits shallower hopper wall angles in new construction design. Flex-line® improves performance of existing structures with linings on interior surfaces of chutes, hoppers and process equipment. Linings are mechanically fastened to substrates of steel, stainless steel, aluminium and concrete.Engineering firms and flow consultants worldwide specify Flex-line® linings more often than any other polymer.

Chutes, hoppers, bins, bunkers, silos, vibratory feeders, slider beds, conveyor skirting, drag conveyors, dragline buckets, front end loader and excavator buckets, off / on-road tipper truck bodies, railcars, dust collectors, cyclones & many more.

Flex-Line® Applications & Different Grades

 

For the lining of:

Chutes, hoppers, bins, bunkers, silos, vibratory feeders, slider beds, conveyor skirting, drag conveyors, dragline buckets, front end loader and excavator buckets, off / on-road tipper truck bodies, railcars, dust collectors, cyclones & many more.

 

Bulk Material Handled:

Animal feed, anthracite culm, bauxite, bituminous coal, chemical powders, copper concentrate, dust, fertilizers, fly ash, foundry sand, grains, raw sugar, gypsum, iron ore, kaolin, lime, limestone, nickel ore, platinum ore, phosphate, salt, sand, silica sand, soap detergent, sub-bituminous coal, waste coals, wood chips & many more.

 

Sharp and / or large rocks must be avoided, especially crushed or blasted rock still in large form, as Flex-Line® is primarily a flow liner and not an impact or wear liner although it has the properties of high abrasion resistance and good impact resistance.

Examples of materials Handled:

  • Fine river sand,

  • Fine slurry

  • Crushed Limestone

  • Fine Coal

  • Raw Sugar

  • Silica Sand

  • Animal Feed Industry

  • Fine copper sulphate

  • Limestone Ammonium Sulphate 

Examples of materials which will damage Flex-Line® - high impact & sharp cutting edges:

  • Large Sharp Rocks,

  • Glass recycling

  • Rock pile, blasted rock

 

FlexLine Green

FlexLine is a partly crosslinked ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (PE-UHMW) with a molecular weight of from 7 - 9.2 million g/mol. A modification optimizes the material, both in terms of wear and sliding. This positions FlexLine as an excellent lining material with global applications.

Flex8800 Blue

Flex 8800 is a partly crosslinked ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (PE-UHMW) with a molecular weight of 9.2 million g/mol. A modification optimizes the material, both in terms of wear and sliding. This positions Flex 8800 as an excellent lining material.

A4 Regen 

A4® is a regenerated material based on ultra-high molecular weight low pressure polyethylene (PE-UHMW) with a corresponding high proportion of new material. This mixing ratio results in an economical material that is suitable for a variety of uses. Especially as a cost efficient option, the material A4® has proven its worth.

A4 G Confetti

A4® G multicolor is a regenerated material based on PE-UHMW (ultra-high molecular weight low pressure polyethylene). This economical alternative offers good material properties, is convenient to use (with certain restrictions), and is widely acknowledged. Also refer to A4® FQ 1000

A4® FQ 1000

A4® FQ is a regenerated material based on ultra-high molecular weight low pressure polyethylene with a low proportion of new material. Thanks to further development and enhancements, A4® FQ gains a finer look and better quality than the material A4® G multicolour.

ST 6000® Rubber back

St 6000® protect is a composite material with a sandwich structure; it is manufactured from St 1000® [PE1000] and an oil-resistant rubber (NBR). Our method of sintering under pressure permanently joins the two materials, enabling users to glue the rubberized side.
