Screw Conveyors

Screw conveyors, also known as auger conveyors or industrial screw conveyors, are systems designed to transfer free-flowing and non-free-flowing, dry and semi-dry bulk materials. Note: Since the operation of the system involves a screw cutting through the bulk materials, we do not recommend using screw conveyors to process substances that are sticky or do not break down easily, such as gels.

Applications

Screw conveyors 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.
