Application range and performance comparison of screw conveyor

- Aug 18, 2018-

Screw conveyors have been widely used in many industries. The machine can be used to transport powder, granular and small block materials horizontally or obliquely, such as coal, ash, slag, cement, grain, etc. The material temperature is less than 200 °C. Screw conveyors are not suitable for conveying materials that are prone to deterioration, viscous, and agglomerate. Especially in the concrete mixing station, its role has been fully reflected.


At present, screw conveyors have been widely used in the chemical, building materials, grain and other industries. Generally, the ambient temperature is required to be 20~50°C, the inclination of the conveyor is β≤20°, the conveying length is generally less than 40m, and the longest is not more than 70m.


Compared to other conveyors, screw conveyors have many advantages. However, it is necessary to regularly check the wear and tear during the use and maintain it. On the whole, the screw conveyor has the advantages of simple structure, small cross-sectional size, good sealing performance, multiple loading and unloading in the middle, safe and convenient operation, and low manufacturing cost.
