The screw conveyor is a general-purpose material conveying device, which mainly uses the thrust generated by the rotation of the screw blade to realize the transportation of the real material, and transports the material from the inlet to the outlet.

Screw conveyors are mainly suitable for the transportation of powdery, small and non-wet materials. They are widely used in modern industrial production, mainly in pharmaceutical, chemical, food, building materials, metallurgy and other industries.

Five characteristics of screw conveyor

1. Large capacity and long conveying distance

The screw conveyor has the characteristics of large capacity and long conveying distance, so it is widely used in industrial fields such as building materials and chemicals. At the same time, its high conveying efficiency reduces the burden of manual handling of heavy objects.

2. Large conveying span and flexible transfer direction

The screw conveyor has a wide range of conveying spans, which can realize long-distance and large-angle material transfer, and can also adapt to material conveying requirements in different directions.

3. Suitable for various materials

The screw conveyor can transport a variety of materials, such as powder, granular, solid, liquid and other materials, and has strong adaptability.

4. Save space and run smoothly

Compared with other conveying equipment, the screw conveyor can better save space and reduce the basic floor space of the equipment. At the same time, its operation is stable, which is conducive to reducing the maintenance and loss of equipment.

5. Simple operation and convenient maintenance

The operation of the screw conveyor is relatively simple, and automatic control can be realized to make the work of the equipment more stable and reliable. At the same time, the maintenance of the screw conveyor is also relatively convenient, only need to regularly check and clean the equipment.


The screw conveyor has different application characteristics such as strong conveying capacity and stable use effect, and can adapt to the material conveying needs of multiple industries.

Screw conveyors are widely used in modern industrial production, giving full play to their role in material transportation, and are a reliable and economical material transportation device.
