Material Handling Screw Conveyor utilizes a rotating helical screw blade, within a tube for moving liquid or granular materials. Moreover, it is used in the industries for moving wood chips, animal feed, boiler ash, municipal solid waste, and cereal grains. In addition, the rate of volume transfer is equal to the rotation rate of the shaft. Material Handling Screw Conveyor can also be used as a variable rate feeder by varying rotation rate for delivering a measured rate or quantity of material into a process. Further, this kind of conveyors can also be operated with the flow of material inclined upwards.
