Screw conveyor is also called auger ,which is used in mining,feeding stuff,grain and oil,building production lines. As per the movable of materials ,screw conveyor is divided into horizontal screw conveyor and vertical screw conveyor. Screw conveyors are used to transport all kinds of powder,particle and small bulk pieces horizontally and vertically. Comparing with other conveying equipment, screw conveyor with simple structure,small cross-sectional area, good sealing performance ,can feed in multi inlets and outlets,easy to operate and save fabricating cost. The shortcomings on screw conveyors are : rotation parts are easy to be worn out ,small capacity and large power consumption, materials also can be crushed during transporting.
Strictly to follow the installation and maintenance book , start up or stop the conveyor without loading .feeding materials continuously. If necessary, add or feed materials averagely into screw conveyor through vibrating conveyor or rotary feeder. When the initial feeding materials into the tubular screw conveyor, shall feed materials slowly and averagely. Oitherwise,there will cause materials blocking ,motor is overloading,etc.www.wxconveyor.com
