Screw Conveyor Components
Screw conveyors are one of the oldest and simplest methods for moving bulk materials and consist primarily of a conveyor screw rotating in a stationary trough. Material placed in the trough is moved along its length by rotation of the screw which is supported by hanger bearings. Inlets, outlets, gates, and other accessories control the material and its disposition.
Screw conveyors are compact, easily adapted to congested locations, and can be mounted horizontal, vertical, and in inclined configurations. Their supports are simple and easily installed.
Screw feeders are totally enclosed, compact, simple in design, and dust tight. They are economical to install, operate, and maintain.
