Rieco's screw conveyors are expertly engineered to transport powders and granular materials efficiently and reliably. Featuring a rotating helical screw blade—known as a "flight"—within a tube, pipe, or U-trough, these conveyors are a standout solution in the world of material handling.
The design centers around a spiral blade coiled around a shaft, which is driven at one end and held at the other. Crucially, the rate of volume transfer is proportional to the shaft's rotation rate, enabling precise control over material flow.
In industrial settings, Rieco’s screw conveyors excel as variable rate feeders. By adjusting the rotation rate of the shaft, operators can deliver a specific quantity of material into a process, making these conveyors ideal for both loss-in-weight and gain-in-weight dosing applications.
In summary, whether horizontal, inclined, vertical, reversible, or flexible, our screw conveyors are engineered for precision, efficiency, and adaptability, catering to the unique needs and challenges of modern industrial processes.
