At first,customers assumed to use belt conveyor to replace the screw conveyor and bucket elevator.After checking and discussing with changrong engineering team,they agreed to use screw conveyor + bucket elevator because it is not convenient to maintain and clean on belt conveyor.Another reason is that belt conveyor’s sealing effect is worse than screw conveyor and bucket elevator.

For cleaning and maintainance, there exist some inspection window or cleaning port on screw conveyors and bucket elevators.
