FLEXWALL® Plus feeders from Kubota Brabender Technologie

Serial flexibility

These are our classics and yet have lost nothing in terms of currency. They are incredibly versatile and yet easy to use. They are incredibly practical and anything but square: our FLEXWALL® Plus series features feeders for almost any application.

What it is and what it can do.

FLEXWALL® Plus is a range of feeders for processing free-flowing, partial-flowing and poor-flowing bulk materials and consists of the following components:

  • a trapezoidal stainless-steel housing
  • a flexible polyurethane hopper with a large hopper cross-section
  • agitator paddles
  • a feeding screw
  • a screw tube
  • a drive unit
  • and a trapezoidal feed hopper

Its compact trapezoidal design allows up to six feeders to be arranged around a central feed point to save space. And it is available both as a volumetric feeder and as a gravimetric loss-in-weight feeder. These features alone make it one of the most versatile feeders in our product portfolio. But the FLEXWALL® Plus is and can do so much more.

Practical for virtually any task

Since we added the first FLEXWALL® Plus feeder to our portfolio in 2001, its design concept has made it our most extensively expanded product line. A concept that was designed from the outset for maximum versatility and flexibility, and which as a series now covers the entire industry spectrum from free-flowing to poor-flowing bulk materials. This also includes the fact that it is also available in food-safe Hygienic Design versions and can also be upgraded to the FLEXWALL® Plus HD version featuring various options to meet different industry and customer requirements. As such, it can feature HD motors and offers the benefit of tool-free dismantling.

Versatile can also mean simple

First, the stainless steel used in FLEXWALL® Plus feeders makes these units essentially robust and durable. Easy dismantling and cleaning of the screw and hopper make them simple to handle.

The weighing module with its robust digital load cells features a straightforward design, but is technically sophisticated. In the feeding unit, two motors ensure that the agitator paddle and the screw can be controlled separately to enable a continuous feeding process. The screw profiles can easily be replaced and adapted to different feed media and capacity ranges.

One for all

It is no coincidence that FLEXWALL® Plus is the first product to which we are dedicating a short profile in our online magazine FLUX digital. We believe the story of the FLEXWALL® Plus series is representative of our core product promise of "Keep the Flow", developing equipment and configurations that keep our customers' processes flowing. Its versatility and flexibility mean that the FLEXWALL® Plus product range is also synonymous with our philosophy of developing flexible solutions for the widest possible range of applications.
