Screw conveyors – the right transport systems to suit your needs
Screw conveyors are used wherever a variety of bulk materials have to be transported quickly and safely. Scheuch COMPONENTS offers a wide selection of variants, allowing you to find exactly the right conveyor to meet your specific requirements.
What is a screw conveyor?
A mechanical screw conveyor is a transport or conveying system that can be used for an extensive range of bulk materials. Screw conveyors are driven by a motor and operated according to the Archimedes screw principle. This means that the element being conveyed is moved by constantly rotating the screw shaft, which looks like a screw.
What are the special features of a screw conveyor?
In contrast to pneumatic suction systems, screw conveyors are usually less expensive, quieter and, most importantly, suitable for shorter distances. The conveying distance can be quite steep (up to 30 degrees difference in altitude), but should be kept as straight as possible.
Advantages of a screw conveyor:
- Dust-free and closed conveying process
- Specific seal design for the area of application
- Ideal drive dimensions
- Designed for 24/7 continuous operation
- Scheuch COMPONENTS provides screw conveyors up to 13 metres long
- Robust design for maximum loads in continuous operation
- Flexible system integration using 3D planning
- Short delivery times due to largely standardized modular design
What types of screw conveyors are available?
We currently offer three basic screw conveyor variants. These differ in structure as well as in key technical data and areas of application.
