Operation of the Flexible Screw Conveyor

Operation of the flexible screw conveyor operation begins with the product addition to sealed tube. This motion is facilitated by the rotation of the auger, which is driven by a single motor. The length, design, size, and shape of the auger will differ depending on the application. A screw conveyor is mounted to a hopper for easy material loading. Generally, the auger features helicoid or spiral design, which effectively helps in conveying a wide range of materials.
