Spirohelix manufactures the modular tubular screw conveyor system in it’s Dubai based fabrication yard, which is highly versatile offering numerous solutions for conveying powdery or granular materials. Tubular Screw Conveyors are manufactured from carbon steel with suitable surface finishing. They consist of a tubular trough equipped with at least one inlet and outlet spout, an endplate at each tubular trough end, helicoid screw flighting welded on a centre pipe with coupling bush at each end, two end bearing assemblies complete with adjustable shaft seal, and a number of intermediate hanger bearings depending on the overall length of the screw conveyor. Furthermore, Tubular Screw Conveyors are equipped with a gear motor appropriate for the application.
Depending on the material to be handled, Tubular Screw Conveyors come in a light or medium heavy-duty design. Both versions are available with ATEX, Zone 22 certification.
The light-duty version is mainly used for feeding and conveying flour and flour milling by-products. The medium heavy-duty version is mainly used in animal feed milling with products such as cereals, meals and milling by-products. In general, Tubular Screw Conveyors and Feeders are suitable for applications that require minimum material residue and maximum conservation of particle size of the material when handled.
