Screw conveyors are the established solution for transporting bulk material. The system's centerpiece, the rotating screw conveyor, is efficiently driven by our powerful X series industrial gear units.
Powerful in every design: Our drive system for screw conveyors
A screw conveyor is the best choice for transporting semi-solid materials such as food waste, wood chips or aggregates: It economically and efficiently transports bulk material of any kind. A screw conveyor, normally operated in a pipe, transports the material over several meters and at any operating angle between 0° and 90°. Inclined conveyor lines represent a particular challenge: the high performance capability of our drive solution ensures that even material which drops back down continues to be transported.
Our powerful and robust X series industrial bevel-helical gear units reliably and powerfully move the material you need to transport. Our package solution for screw conveyors give you a choice of different gear unit designs as well as providing a wide range of accessories and options – so that you can put together the perfect drive system for your materials handling application.
High throughput and safe operation at any supply rate
In many cases screw conveyors have to be powerful as well as quick and stable: for example, transport quantities of between 700 and 1,500 tonnes per hour are fairly common when unloading ships – even under harsh ambient conditions.
Our drive solutions make these kinds of capacities possible. Besides the inner and outer diameter of the worm, the incline, fill level and the material friction, the drive unit also has a considerable impact on the transport capacity: the higher the speed of the gear unit, the greater the quantity of material that can be transported in a short period of time.
Durable and high-quality designs as well as rapid availability guarantee a long operating life and prevent expensive idling times, even under difficult conditions. Regardless of whether this relates to a foot-, flange- or shaft-mounted design or whether on the entry or run-out side – our gearmotors reliably defy both wind and weather.
