Components

THE CONVERYOR SCREW imparts a smooth positive motion to the material as it rotates within the trough.

COUPLINGS AND SHAFT connect and transmit motion to subsequent screw conveyors. Held in place by self-locking Tem-U-Lac bolts.

HANGERS provide support, maintain alignment and serve as bearing surfaces.

TROUGHS AND CONVEYORS completely enclose the material being conveyed and the rotating parts. Covers are available in various types and are secured to the trough by Spring, Screw, Tite-Seal or quick-acting Barron Clamps depending on the trough being used.

INLET AND DISCHARGE OPENINGS may be located wherever needed, discharge spouts may be without slides or fitted with either flat or curved slides. These slides may be operated by hand, rack and pinion gears or by power.
