Flexicon Offers Quicker Way To Manufacture Hairspray

December 9, 2005

Flexicon Ltd. designed, manufactured and installed a new enclosed system for Statestrong Ltd., a UK-based hairspray manufacturer, that improves product stability, increases throughput and eliminates dusting. It is comprised of a hydraulically operated drum dumper, a 300-gallon capacity receiving hopper and a flexible screw conveyer that transfers hair fixative powder to a mixer. This system eliminates balling, improves mixing efficiency and throughput, improves product stability by eliminating exposure to ambient humidity and minimizes worker health risks.
