RUD’s conveyor and drive systems are suitable for use in the bulk materials industry. The company designs, fits and manufactures complete conveyor and drive systems, such as bucket elevators and chain conveyors for bulk materials handling. RUD’s BULKOS range of conveying systems for the bulk materials industry includes scraper conveyors, drag chain conveyors, screw conveyors and apron feeders.

RUD screw conveyor systems are long lasting and require minimal maintenance. They are used for horizontal, inclined and vertical transportation. They typically transport fine, floury or coarse grain materials,as well as high-temperature, abrasive or slow-flowing materials.

The conveyor chains are forged; they have been heat treated or case hardened. They offer a high resistance to wear, which can be further increased by hard surface welding. 

RUD screw conveyors have been used across a range of markets, including mining, iron and steel works, tunnel construction, quarrying, recycling and the cement industry.

Key features and benefits

  • The conveyor’s drive shaft consists of flange or pedestal bearings; sealing is provided by grease-filled radial shaft seals. 
  • The drive station and the inspection flap can be dismantled for easy maintenance.
  • The drive contains a standard geared motor unit, mounted on the bracket that is attached to the side.
  • Safety clutches can be provided to prevent overloads.
  • The trough consists of individual, standard-length sections with connecting flanges.
  • Hold-down rails are recommended for most of the materials to be conveyed. These prevent the material from building up and thus the chain climbing.
