‘Cost-efficient screw conveying: understanding the factors that affect the cost of screw conveyors’ - .PDF file.

Screw conveyors are a popular choice for bulk materials handling and can be used for a range of products, from food and pharmaceuticals through to grains and animal feed, chemicals and minerals. The machines have a simple, robust design and present an easy-to-maintain, cost-effective and versatile option for material transport. Additional benefits include the ease with which they can be made dust tight, the flexibility to have multiple outlets and the ability to enable mixing within the conveyor. This introductory article from Guttridge looks at how screw conveyors work, focusing on the factors that affect design and, consequently, cost. The aim is to provide engineers with the background knowledge needed to use screw conveyors in a cost-efficient way within the constraints imposed by an existing or evolving plant design.
