What is a Spiral Screw or Auger Conveyor?
A spiral screw or auger conveyor usually consist of a tube containing either a spiral blade or flighting coiled around a shaft, to move liquids, slurries or granular materials horizontally or at a slight incline as an efficient way.
The rate of volume transfer is proportional to the rotation rate of the shaft. In industrial control applications the device is often used as a variable rate feeder by varying the rotation rate of the shaft to deliver a measured rate or quantity of material into a process.
Screw conveyors can be operated with the flow of material inclined upward. When space allows, this is a very economical method of elevating and conveying. As the angle of inclination increases, the capacity of a given unit rapidly decreases.
ScrewVeyor supply screw conveyors into many applications from grain Augers, maize conveyors, millie feeder, wheat conveyor, sugar conveyors, to animal feed, and pet food conveying systems manufactured in mild steel or stainless steel.
