Bevcon Screw Conveyor is also known as helix conveyor, spiral conveyor or auger conveyor. Bevcon Screw Conveyors are used to convey semi-solid materials horizontally or at slight inclinations efficiently. Screw conveyor’s main function is to transfer varied bulk materials from one process to another. Materials like food waste, wood chips, aggregates, cereal grains, animal feed, boiler ash, meat, bone meal, municipal solid waste can be effectively conveyed using Screw Conveyors.
Screw Conveyor has a trough containing spiral flights / blade coiled around a shaft and driven at one end and held at other end. The rate of volume transfer is proportional to the rotation rate of the shaft. In industrial control applications the device is often used as a variable rate feeder by varying the rotation rate of the shaft to deliver a measured rate or quantity of material into a process.
