Shaftless Screw Conveyors
Shaftless screw conveyors are typically used to discharge bulk materials from centrifuges, filter presses or mixers. Carolina Material Technologies provides the KWS shaftless design, a non-clogging conveying surface that allows the conveying of difficult-to-convey materials. Shaftless screw conveyors are the perfect solution for handling bulk materials with high moisture content.
Advantages of Using Shaftless Screw Conveyors
- Handles sticky and sluggish bulk material with ease.
- Improved conveying efficiency in comparison to other types of conveyors
- Allows greater flexibility for plant layout due to configurations available
- Internal bearings are eliminated
KWS Shaftless Screw Conveyors are successfully used throughout the chemical, food, minerals processing and wastewater treatment industries for conveying everything from catalysts to dewatered biosolids. The highly efficient KWS Shaftless Screw Conveyors achieve its top of the line performance through zero-clearance between the trough and spiral, improving conveying efficiency and eliminating many of the flow-impeding issues common with shafted screw conveyors. Higher trough loading allows for lower operating speeds. The special KWS design requires less parts, resulting in lower capital cost and lower overall maintenance costs. KWS Shaftless Screw Conveyors are designed for greater flexibility and efficiency in plant layout, providing for end-to-end, side inlet/discharge and vertical configurations.
