Features and structure
The screw elevator caters for highly compact installations in reduced spaces.
A screw elevator that operates by “pushing” can be coupled onto a second screw elevator and fed directly, without the need for an intermediate hopper.
The material is moved by a robust steel spiral. It is a helicoid without a central shaft or core, with greater conveyor capacity, less sensitivity to fibrous or clogging materials, and the ability to transport products in a wide range of sizes.
As the spiral has no central shaft, it is always in contact with the trough, which is protected by a replaceable sleeve. There are different kinds of protective sleeves, which are made of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (PE-1000 UHMW), Adiprene…depending on the material to be moved. In order to reduce wear, the auger should be filled with as much material as possible when in operation.
