Convey Difficult to Move Products
Shaftless Screw Conveyor
If you have a wet, sticky, stringy or lumpy product to convey, using a typical screw conveyor design with a center shaft is problematic. Wet, sticky materials can adhere to the screw, reducing capacity and increasing both wear and power usage. Stringy materials can wrap around the center screw.
The Orthman Shaftless Screw is manufactured in one continuous helix. Because the screw rides on the bottom of the housing on a replaceable liner, hanger bearing supports are unnecessary. Designing out the center pipe eliminates buildup of wet sticky products and a location for stringy products to wrap around.
Totally enclosed, the shaftless screw conveyor helps contain odors, keeps extraneous materials out, eliminates spills, and minimizes maintenance.
