Screw conveyor is a machine that uses a motor to drive spiral rotation and push materials to achieve the purpose of conveying. It can be conveyed horizontally, obliquely or vertically, and has the advantages of simple structure, small cross-sectional area, good sealing, and convenient operation.
It is suitable for conveying powdery, granular and small block materials, such as pulverized coal, soda ash, etc. It is a continuous conveying equipment widely used in metallurgy, building materials, chemical, food and mechanical processing departments.
Screw conveyor assist in moving, or conveying items such as: packages, equipment, food, or products from one area to another, usually for the purpose of performing automated or semi-automated finishing or manufacturing processes. These conveyors are able to transport dry, loose materials between places such as pits, trucks, barrels, rail cars, silos, hoppers, and vats.
To that end, screw conveyors can be found in a wide range of industries and applications, such as: construction, oil and gas, mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, food processing and agricultural.
In farming and agriculture, screw conveyors are used as a part of machinery, like balers or threshers, that assist in conveying grains and animal feed to various locations. In food processing, screw conveyors transport dry ingredients—such as nuts, salt, and flour—that are used in making food products. The construction industry uses industrial screw conveyors to mix wet and dry ingredients to produce plaster or cement.
Screw conveyors work by rotating bulk materials from one location to another. They operate on the principle of Archimedes’ screw. Archimedes’ screw principle says this: When a revolving screw or auger is correctly installed inside a tube or cylinder, it can move water in the direction you have chosen. In addition, every time the screw rotates, it will let new material into the tube.
Screw conveyors move material at a predetermined flow rate. Depending on the application, this flow rate may be measured by cubic feet per hour, pounds per hour or tons per hour. Their power may come from electricity, gravity or the energy of another machine.
