The Screw Conveyor (SC):
The Screw Conveyor (SC) is used for transportation of bulk materials from A to B by rotation of a screw (the auger principle).
The material is transferred in a tube that ensures no spillage of material.
The SC provides accurate dosing for instance into a crusher or a divider.
The SC can also be used to transport relatively small volumes of reject material from sample preparation back to the mainstream.
The SC consists of an inlet chute, a rigid outer tube, a screw mounted on a shaft, a geared motor and an outlet.
The material enters in the inlet chute and is being transported by the screw blade to the outlet.
The SC can transport material either horizontally or tilted upwards/downwards.
Drive unit: Geared brake motor
Voltage: 400/230V-50Hz or as required
Sensor: Rotation sensor
Length: 1 – 5 [m]
Housing: Stainless steel/painted mild steel
Inspection hatch(es): As shown on the drawing below
ATEX: According to customer request
The screw with shaft is supported by suitable bearings at both ends.
1. The SC is also available in a ATEX version depending on requirement.
2. The SC can be delivered in a precision version to ensure extraction of very fine particles.
3. If necessary, in order to control the dosed amount of material, the speed can be varied by controlling the motor speed through a frequency converter.
4. The tube may be provided with an inner lining to increase wear resistance.
Nota Bene 1
The screw may in some cases be designed sufficiently ridged to work without a shaft.
