These joint efforts made for a seamless installation and performance in the field.

Special Features of KWS Design

The horizontal screw conveyor utilized three different flight types to meet the customer’s requirements. Cut flights were used throughout the inlet sections to create a shearing action, breaking apart any small lump. This was followed by cut and folded flights to provide a thorough lifting and mixing action of the various materials. The final section of the conveyor utilized standard flights to provide smooth product flow into the vertical screw conveyor optimizing performance.
