The engineering section of this catalog was compiled to aid you in the design of a conveyor system, yielding optimum performance and efficiency, for your individual conveying function.
Primary considerations for the selection of a screw conveyor are:
- Type and condition of the material to be handled, including maximum particle size, and, if available, the specific bulk density of the material to be conveyed.
- Quantity of transported material, expressed in pounds or tons per hour.
- The distance for which the material is to be conveyed.
In the next sections is the necessary information for the selection of a screw conveyor system, presented in a series of five steps. These steps are arranged in logical order, and are divided into separate sections for simplicity.
