Pushing vs. Pulling Screw Conveyor

The drive unit can be located on either the inlet or discharge end of a screw conveyor. KWS recommends locating the drive unit on the discharge end to pull material towards the discharge. Pulling material toward the discharge puts the screw sections in tension, keeping alignment, which is critical for preventing premature failures.
