The material is fed into the product inlet and is then gently conveyed through the screw conveyor by the helix blades. The throughput is determined by the rotational speed and can be controlled with a variable frequency drive.
By carefully selecting the correct design parameters, one can convey almost any dry material with a tubular screw conveyor.
Various design implementations yield optimized solutions for various customer requirements. Examples are easy clean features, air purge fittings for meeting the highest hygienic standards and using the right material and surface finish for the corresponding application at hand.
