Grooved screw conveyor made of stainless steel ScrewTech LM
Grooved screw conveyor, operating principle.
Such units include a gutter-type housing and a loading neck, through which unloading is also carried out. The material moves along the above-mentioned chute due to the rotational movement of the screw, which accommodates a stainless steel tray screw, namely its casing. The rotation is carried out by an electric motor, which is connected to the axis of the shaft itself by means of a gearbox.
Thanks to all this system, a certain material enters the chute through the neck intended for loading, and due to the screw of the feeding type moves along its axis. The movement takes place up to the very neck of the discharge.
ScrewTech LM stainless steel tray screw conveyor can be made according to individual parameters, depending on the customer's wishes. But even with such an assembly, the designers take into account first of all the factors that positively affect the performance, as well as the service life of the unit. It is depending on them that all the calculations of the conveyor itself are made, as well as the selection of the gearbox used. The factors include:
The length of the stainless steel screw conveyor tray, as well as the angle of its inclination.
Performance is also taken into account.
Another important role is played by the properties of the product that is transported.
As mentioned above, the role of the motor in the conveyor of this type is played by a special worm-type gearbox, which has an increased indicator of the so-called service factor. In such a motor, a special synthetic type of lubricant is used. It is notable for the fact that it does not require replacement throughout its entire service life.
Operational advantages of the ScrewTech LM stainless steel tray screw conveyor:
The gearbox that is used in this unit is unpretentious and at the same time is highly reliable.
As for the body of the unit, it is made of steel, which has an increased quality indicator.
The pen, which includes a stainless steel tray screw, is also made of high-quality steel, which has a very high wear resistance.
The grooved screw conveyor includes a bearing of the support type, which has a special design. Thanks to it, the reliability of the entire unit is significantly increased. This allows you to avoid a large number of production downtime of the grooved screw conveyor, which occur due to repairs and scheduled maintenance.
The device of the end-type bearing prevents various fine dust from entering it, as well as the material itself that is being transported.
