The Shaftless Screw Conveyors are of rugged design with a shaftless spiral housed within a stainless steel enclosed U-trough. Elimination of the internal shaft results in higher performance and lower maintenance because it eliminates clogging, wrapping and bridging. There are no end or hanger bearings common with shafted conveyors.

These conveyors are used in both municipal and industrial applications. Design is customized to meet project specifications. Spiral screw diameters, pitch, thickness, length and inclination are determined by type and quantity of material being conveyed. Screw rotational speed is determined by the application capacity and loading requirements. The shaftless screw design can be used in horizontal, inclined and vertical applications. We protect against wear on the screw and trough with use of replaceable hardened steel wear bars or UHMW-PE trough liners; this in turn minimizes maintenance costs.

A variety of options are available to best fit your application:

  • 316 Stainless frame and component construction for more corrosive installations
  • Manual and automatic slide gates can be used at one or more discharge locations
  • Discharge bagger option can be used to contain putrescent odours
  • Heat tracing for cold weather outdoor installations
