The mechanical transfer of powder is sometimes done with screw conveyors. Powder Process-Solutions can provide a properly designed solution. Our designs are available in a variety of sizes and styles customized to fit your process needs.

A typical screw conveyor utilizes a shafted or shaftless helix rotating inside a tube or trough, imparting force against product as it rotates. Product is transferred and discharged in a controlled manner as the helix starts/stops or varies in speed.
