Screw conveyors are a type of mechanical conveying system that moves materials in a helical path inside a cylindrical casing. The screw, also known as an auger, rotates within the casing, pushing and pulling materials along the axis of the conveyor.
Screw conveyors are commonly used in industries that require the transportation of bulk materials, such as food processing, agriculture, mining, and construction. They can move materials horizontally, vertically, or at an incline, depending on the design of the conveyor.
Screw conveyors come in a variety of sizes and configurations, and can be designed to handle materials with different properties, such as abrasive or corrosive materials. They are a simple and efficient way to transport materials over short or long distances, and can be used in both continuous and intermittent processes.
