Screw Conveyor

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.

Single-shaft screw conveyor is a common material conveying equipment. It is mainly composed of a screw shaft, a material inlet and a material outlet. It is widely used in building materials, metallurgy, chemical industry, light industry, food and other industries.

Description of 4 major application fields of single-shaft screw conveyor

Building materials industry

Single-shaft screw conveyors are widely used in material transportation in construction materials, cement and other fields. It can transport solid materials such as sand and gravel, as well as semi-solid or liquid materials such as cement slurry.

Metallurgical and chemical industry

In the metallurgical and chemical industries, screw conveyors are mainly used to transport powder, granules, coal powder, and ash, lime and other materials. It has high conveying efficiency and stable operation, and plays an important role in the conveying and processing of the production line.

Food Industry

In the food processing industry, single-axis screw conveyors are widely used to transport materials such as granules, granules, and slurries, which can ensure that the food will not be damaged during the transportation process and ensure the overall quality of the food.

other industry

Single-axis screw conveyors also have certain applications in other industries, such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and environmental protection. In the pharmaceutical industry, single-axis screw conveyors are mainly used to transport materials such as pharmaceutical powder and medicinal materials, which can avoid drug contamination and cross-infection during the transportation process. In the field of environmental protection, the single-axis screw conveyor can transport waste residue, dust and other pollutants, and transport them to incineration or treatment equipment, playing the role of environmental protection.


Single-shaft screw conveyors have been widely used in many fields and played an important role.

At the same time, since different material conveying requires different screw blades and screw shafts, it is very important to design and select a single-shaft screw conveyor suitable for current production needs.
