Screw conveyors are a common equipment selection for thousands of industrial and manufacturing applications that require an efficient, cost-effective way to move a variety of bulk materials from one process to another. However, a screw conveyor is not a one-size-fits-all solution. If misapplied, this equipment will experience breakdowns that result in lost revenues from production downtime.

In addition to conveying, this versatile equipment can also be used to feed and meter bulk materials accurately and efficiently at fixed or variable rates. Options include:

Number One

Single- or multiple-screw configuration depending on required feed rate and hopper design

Number Two

Variable frequency drives for multiple feed rates to downstream processes

Number Three

Mass- or uniform-flow discharge with no bridging or rat-holing of the material in hopper

Many of our customers consider CDM’s custom-engineered screw conveyors to be an ideal solution for their bulk material handling challenges because:

  • They handle the full gamut of materials, from semi-fluid to dry and from sluggish to free-flowing.
  • Their multiple inlet and discharge points allow the efficient distribution of bulk materials to various locations.
  • Their operation consists of a single rotating screw, which equates to easier and less-frequent maintenance.
  • They transfer product inside a totally enclosed tube, minimizing hazards associated with corrosive and other dangerous materials
