Screw conveyors are bulk material transportation systems which are made up of a rotating, spiral screw inside a cylindrical casing or a trough. When the screw rotates, material is pushed forward through the conveyer from one area to another. Not only are these systems used to transport material, but also to help with the agitation, mixing, or breakdown of certain substances. Screw conveyors are used in a variety of industries from agriculture to food processing.
When it comes to choosing between screw conveyor manufacturers, it is important that you find one that is well suited to your needs. Therefore, take into consideration of these factors when choosing which manufacturer to work with when it comes to your screw conveyor system.
There are numerous features that can be designed into a screw conveyor that will give enhanced performance and a better return on investment to the user. Some of these would be tool-less dismantle for easy cleaning, custom inlets and outlet chutes, mounting on a frame with heavy casters for mobility, heating or chilling capabilities to name a few. We consistently delight our customers with providing solutions in conveying that they aren’t able to find elsewhere.
