Screw conveyors are used to discharge and transport nearly all bulk materials including fibrous and paste-like products. They move bulk material with a rotating, spiral conveying screw in a trough or a tube trough.
The advantages of screw conveyors are low susceptibility to failure, low costs, low space requirement and dust-free transport.
They also offer the possibility to feed and remove flexibly transported goods along the conveyor line. Various designs are available for steep inclined and vertical conveying as well as for work processes such as mixing, stirring, washing, sieving, heating and cooling.
Screw conveyors are available in various materials.
For the transport of bulk material in a closed U-shaped or box trough.
For the transport of bulk material in a closed tube.
Heat exchanger for the cooling of bulk materials.
Discharge component for slow-flowing bulk materials, e.g. as discharge conveyor under hunkers or silos.
For the damping of powdery bulk materials during transportation.
For the mixing of one or more bulk materials during
Upon request also wear protected screw conveyors are available:
the conveying of abrading goods wears down the protection of the screw provided by build-up welding or the use of wear-resistant sheet metals such as manganese steel (1.3401). The optimal method to render screw blades wear and corrosion resistant is to apply the SCHRAGE metal spraying coating followed by thermal redensification.
