High efficiency feeding

Introduction

Single Shaft Screw Feeders 1
Single Shaft Screw Feeders 2
Single Shaft Screw Feeders 3
Some powders or granular materials are so poorly flowing that they cannot be stored in silos with a circular outlet cone requiring storage in silos with a steeper cone and an oblong outlet opening. SU-type Screw Feeders match the shape of the silo outlet. The trough section is coupled to a tubular section for efficient material feeding towards further processing.

Some powders or granular materials are so poorly flowing that they cannot be stored in silos with a circular outlet cone. The silo simply would not empty. Such materials (e.g. flour) require storage in silos with a steeper cone and an oblong outlet opening. With their inlet trough section SU-type Screw Feeders match the shape of the silo outlet. The trough section is coupled to a tubular section for efficient material feeding towards further processing.
