The screw conveyor plays an important role in a wide variety of industries. Because it is compact, versatile and economical, it has become one of the most useful mechanisms for the transport and distribution of bulk materials. Aside from its utility as a means of moving materials, the screw conveyor, with certain modifications and/or variations in mechanical arrangement, may also be used toper form, a number of other important functions.
It can be used to mix, blend or agitate. In applications where close control of material flow is critical, the screw conveyor may be used as a highly accurate metering device. Operating in a jacketed housing it may be used as a heating or cooling device. Because it can be effectively sealed, it is extremely valuable in applications where dust or fumes must be confined inside the conveyor or where moisture or contaminants must be kept out.
