Screw conveyor has the following characteristics
1 The structure is relatively simple, the cost is low.
2 reliable and easy to maintain and manage.
3 Compact size, small section size, small footprint. It is easy to enter and exit the hatches and carriages in the port unloading operation.
4) can realize the seal transportation, is advantageous to the transmission easy-flying, the hot and the strong smell material, may reduce to the environment pollution, the improvement port worker's working condition.
5 loading and unloading is convenient. The horizontal screw conveyor can be unloaded at any point on its conveying line, and the relative screw feeding device of the vertical screw conveyor can have excellent performance.
6 can reverse the transmission, also can make a conveyor at the same time to two of the direction of conveying materials, that is, set to the center or away from the center.
7 Unit energy consumption is larger.
8 The material is easy to grind and wear during the conveying process, and the abrasion of the helical blades and the material trough is also serious.
