Screw Conveyor

Our dedicated designed screw conveyors have shown their ability to move a broad range of bulk products under the worst environmental conditions. Our screw conveyors are available in a variety of configurations and are optimized for the task at hand. They are used to transport granules, dust, and flowing bulk materials. Our screw conveyors, on the other hand, are excellently suitable for conveying problematic bulk materials such as explosive, abrasive, or sticky materials. They are commonly used for conveying a variety of materials, including sand, cement, granulate, ash, and other products. Additionally, a hygienic/easy clean version of the tubular screw conveyor is offered for applications such as food processing, powder handling, and many others. Thanks to sophisticated engineering and our wealth of experience, our screw conveyors are an obvious choice, even for products that under normal circumstances could hardly be dealt with by a screw. Thanks to the proven and tested our self-cleaning principle, problem-free conveying is possible, even for adhesive bulk materials.

We will be pleased to help you solve your conveying problems or convey your bulk materials. Our technical team is also help you to choose the suitable geometries and configuration for the screw conveyors. Our portfolio offers you suitable screw conveyor products for all areas of application. In addition to screw conveyors we can offer other types of screws such as feeding screw conveyors which are used to fill combustion chambers, fluidized bed systems, calcining furnaces and waste incineration plants, cooling screw conveyors which are used for the cooling of bulk materials and pasty media, heating screw conveyors which are used for heating, drying or heat treatment of bulk materials, screw heat exchangers and petroleum coke preheaters which are used for anode production in Aluminium industry.

Screw Conveyor Applications:

Light duty (flours)

Medium duty (animal feed, cereals, flour)

Heavy duty (cement, lime, plaster, mining products, explosive, abrasive or adhering materials)

Appropriate for filling and dispensing, transporting, dosing, distributing, and stuffing.

Feeding Screw Conveyor

Our feeding screw conveyors are used to fill combustion chambers, calcining furnaces, fluidized bed systems and waste incineration plants.
Even if the process conditions will not allow a bearing to be used at the end side (facing the process), charging screws are the optimum solution.

Thanks to our longstanding experience in this segment we have many possibilities for designing the geometry and configuration of the system: For example, it is possible to cool or – if the process requires – to heat individual parts or the entire machine to protect and maintain the structure.
Abrasive bulk materials do not pose a risk to the life of the machine, as the varied options provide effective measures for preventing unwanted premature wear. Our product range includes versions with multiple shaft designs to satisfy the mass flow rate and cleaning requirements.

Cooling screw conveyors

Cooling screw conveyors are used to chill a wide range of bulk materials and pasty media, including food. For a variety of application areas and bulk material compositions, cooling screw conveyors with specialized features are offered on the market. Cooling screw conveyor is suited for all applications in which not only cautious handling of the bulk product, but also rigorous separation of the cooling medium and the bulk product is necessary, such as in food processing.
We operate our cooling screw conveyors to transport various materials such as coal bottom ash and fly ash, as well as cement, sodium chloride and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), pyrolysis waste, cyanide, and pastes of various formulations.

Heating screw conveyors

Heating screw conveyors are often used for the heating, drying, or heat treatment of a wide range of bulk materials, including petroleum coke, pasty media, dust, pastes, and sludges. Heating screw conveyors are also utilized for the heating, drying, and heat treatment of powders. In order to heat or melt the product, evaporate liquid components, or initiate or stop a reaction, our heating screw conveyors inject a set amount of heat into the product using a screw conveyor design.

As some bulk products have a strong tendency to stick and bridge, they often form an insulating layer on the hollow flights. Depending on the conditioning of the bulk product, the sludge, or the paste, we have created the tried and proven alternative of a self-cleaning system for equipping the heating screw conveyor in order to guarantee consistently clean surfaces on the heating screw conveyor surface.
