Pipe screw conveyers
The right pipe screw conveyor for your system
Pipe screw conveyors are suitable for industrial and agricultural applications where bulk materials need to be conveyed in efficient and clean processes. The closed unit ensures that a wide range of materials can be transported in a dust-free manner and also allows for steep conveying distances.
We can provide a solution that’s the perfect fit for your specific system.
In addition to conveying itself, our screw conveyors are put to use in various process stages such as collection, distribution, discharging, compressing, mixing, blocking, decoupling and even metering.
Our product range also includes wear-resistant concepts and explosion-proof design in line with ATEX directive.
Special features of a pipe screw conveyor
Due to their closed casing, pipe screw conveyors are suitable for conveying a wide range of materials. What’s more, the conveyed bulk materials can be transported not only on a horizontal plane but also across inclines.
Advantages of a pipe screw conveyor:
- Closed, dust-free transport
- Ability to convey materials of different consistencies
- Transport across inclines/steep conveyors possible
- Specific seal design for the area of application
- Designed for 24/7 continuous operation
- Scheuch COMPONENTS provides pipe 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
Just like the trough screw conveyors trough screw conveyors and screw conveyors with customized production included in our range, our pipe screw conveyors also feature a robust design and operate at high conveying rates.
Areas of applications for pipe screw conveyors
Where are pipe screw conveyors used? screw conveyors are particularly well suited to conveying across steep inclines, as they are able to minimize the amount of conveyed material that is lost. They are mainly used in conveying systems in agriculture, the food industry and production, and can transport conveyed material in the following consistencies:
- powder form
- and more besides
In addition to purely conveying, pipe screw conveyors can also be used for discharging, dosing (with a dosing screw) or compressing bulk materials such as grains or minerals. They are also able to discharge products made of various materials, such as wood, plastic or metal.
Which industries are pipe screw conveyors suitable for?
Pipe screw conveyors are suited to a range of sectors thanks to their robust and durable production materials. Since the conveying chamber is strictly separated from its surroundings, these products are mainly used in areas of application where occupational safety, fire prevention and explosion protection are vital considerations.
For example, pipe screw conveyors are used in pharmaceutical companies, the recycling sector, the agricultural industry and animal feed plants. However, these closed transport systems can also be used for production in the food industry.
Scheuch COMPONENTS can provide exactly the right pipe screw model for your specific application, including features such as a customized inlet and outlet.
