Screw Conveyors

To transport material by screw conveyor is one of the oldest ways to move materials, and it was probably Archimedes who invented it as a way to transport water.

Today’s screw conveyors have been refined, but are based on the same principle used by the ancient Greeks.

The screw conveyors that Kellve supplies are usually part of a larger plant and can be supplied in a wide variety of designs. Usually they are used to transport principally granular and powder-form materials, but also pieces of materials up to a certain size can be handled. The screw conveyor is usually enclosed and dust proof as standard which prevents dust and waste. A screw conveyor has a powerful, but relatively simple design which makes it reliable and durable. This implies low maintenance costs at the same time as low power consumption is possible.
