Screw conveyors

SolidwaterOpen brochure

Screw conveyors are used to transport, for example screenings or dewatered sludge. The length and slope are determined according to the application and requirements of the customer. The diameter and motor power are selected according to required capacity of the screw.

The screw conveyor consists of an inlet connection, trough, screw and outlet opening. The material is moved by screw to the outlet and then dropped into  a dolly or container.

If necessary, the screw cover may be equipped with inspection hatches.





The screw conveyors are manufactured in different sizes, with diameter and length selected according to specifications.

The screw may be a spiral with or without a shaft. The conveyor can be engineered to move material in both directions, thus allowing for the use of two collection containers.


The material used the equipment is either stainless or acid proof-steel (AISI304 or AISI 316)
