Screw conveyor

The screw conveyor 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. It is a general mechanical device.

Screw conveyor is an economical and reliable material conveying device, which is widely used in modern industrial production, such as pharmaceutical, chemical, light industry, food, building materials, metallurgy and other industries.Among the many advantages of screw conveyors is their high flexibility.

Five manifestations of screw conveyor application flexibility

Flexibility in length and size

The length and size of the screw conveyor can be changed according to different application requirements, its length can be adjusted more flexibly, and it can be configured according to different conveying distances, which saves costs and fills the gap that other conveying equipment cannot meet. In addition, the diameter of the screw conveyor can also be flexibly adjusted to meet the needs of conveying according to the particle size of the material. Therefore, whether it is short or long distance, small or large material, it can be efficiently conveyed. In addition, the screw conveyor can also increase its conveying speed and improve its flexibility by adding additional rotors.

Flexibility of delivery angle and position

The screw conveyor can be placed horizontally, vertically, in an angle or at a right angle, and can be specially adjusted and customized according to the special requirements of its conveying. Different placement methods have different use effects, and also have different advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, when choosing a screw conveyor, you should carefully consider the use and site, and choose the most suitable placement method.

Flexibility of applicable material types

The screw conveyor can adapt to the conveying needs of various materials and has wide applicability. The materials can be solid or some semi-solid materials. And it can also transport materials of various chemical properties, and is widely used in building materials, sanitation, mining and other industries.

Flexibility of drive mode

The driving methods of the screw conveyor mainly include motor drive, hydraulic drive and pneumatic drive. Different driving methods have different usage effects and usage requirements. According to different production requirements and actual conditions, it is very necessary to choose a suitable driving method for the effective and flexible use of screw conveyors.

The flexibility of the structure

There are many structural forms of screw conveyors. The structure of the spiral blade can be designed according to different materials and conveying conditions, such as U-shaped blades, grooved blades, ribbed blades, etc. There are also many options for the form of the reducer, and the choice for different business forms can fully reflect its flexibility.

In summary

The flexibility of the screw conveyor is manifested in many aspects, whether it is in the length, size, conveying angle and position, driving mode, structural form flexibility, or in the flexibility of applied materials, it has a very advantageous performance. Due to this flexible feature, screw conveyors are widely used in various industries.
