SCREW CONVEYORS are one of the oldest and simplest method of moving bulk material and consist primarily of a conveyor screw rotating in a stationary trough. Conveyors find application mostly in productive factories where transportation is fairly of continuous and uniform character, the individual loads being very high

• ### screw conveyor- an overview | sciencedirect topics

The screw conveyor is composed of a pipe with a welded steel strip that is formed into a continuous helix. The helix is referred to as the flighting. The distance along the pipe from one point on the flighting to the next similar point is called the “pitch.” Couplings and shafts refer to the mechanisms by which two screw conveyors are joined
