A Guide to Industrial Screw Conveyors

Screw conveyors are used to convey work materials according to the screw design and rotational directions. This is done using a helical screw element that rotates around a central shaft. This helical screw is placed inside a casing or compartment to take the advantage of rotational force. They can be used to flow materials in inclined direction. This is a very economical method to elevating and conveying work materials upwards.
