Screw conveyor and screw conveying equipment

July 7, 2023 nflg 0 Comments

Cathay standards specify a variety of “Machine Screws”in diameters ranging up to 0.75 in. These fasteners are often used with nuts and they are often driven into tapped holes. They might be considered a screw or a bolt based on the machinery ’s Handbook distinction. In practice, they tend to be mostly available in smaller sizes and the smaller sizes are referred to as screws or less ambiguously as machine screws, although some kinds of machine screws can be referred to as stove bolts.

Screw conveyor introduction

Screw conveyors have been a popular material handling mechanism throughout history. One type of screw conveyor, perhaps the best known is the archimedian screw contained within a tube to raise water. They are used in many bulk handling industries. Screw conveyors in modern industry are often used horizontally or at a slight incline as an efficient way to move semi-solid materials, including food waste, wood chips, aggregates, cereal grains, animal feed, boiler ash, meat and bone meal, municipal solid waste, and many others.

Screw Conveyor Working Principle

Screw conveyors can have a greater pitch spacing, resulting in a higher capacity without an increase in rotation speed. They usually consist of a trough or tube containing either a spiral coiled around a shaft, driven at one end and held at the other, or a Shaftless Spiral, driven at one end and free at the other.Screw conveyors can be operated with the flow of material inclined upward. When space allows, this is a very economical method of elevating and conveying. It is important to understand, however, that as the angle of inclination increases, the allowable capacity of a given unit rapidly decreases.
