Link-Belt ® Screw conveyors, one of the oldest and simplest methods of moving bulk materials, are compact, easily adapted to congested locations and can be mounted in horizontal, vertical, and inclined configurations. They consist primarily of a conveyor screw rotating in a stationary trough. Material placed in the trough is moved along its length by rotation of the screw, which is supported by hanger bearings. Inlets, outlets, gates and other accessories control the material and its disposition.Their supports are simple and easily installed.
These versatile conveyors can be used to control the flow of material in processing operations which depend upon accurate batching…or as a mixer, agitator or stirrer to mix and blend dry or fluid ingredients, provide crystallization or coagulant action, or maintain solutions in suspension. Screw conveyors can be effectively sealed to prevent dust or fumes from escaping, or dirt or moisture from entering. They can be jacketed to serve as a dryer or cooler, or furnished in a wide variety of materials to resist corrosion, abrasion or heat
