Horizontal screw conveyors are the most widely used type of screw conveyor. Used to convey bulk materials from one part of a process to another, horizontal screw conveyors are available in a wide range of sizes, lengths, configurations and materials of construction.

Screw conveyors are typically designed to convey bulk materials at 15, 30 or 45-percent trough loading, depending upon material characteristics of the specific bulk material. As a general rule, trough loading of 45-percent can be used for light, free-flowing and non-abrasive bulk materials. Trough loadings of 15 and 30-percent are typically used for denser, sluggish and more abrasive bulk materials.

The inlet of a screw conveyor is always control fed by another device such as:

  • Screw Conveyor
  • Screw Feeder
  • Belt Conveyor
  • Rotary Airlock
  • Volumetric or Gravimetric Feeder
