Operators can use an auger conveyor as a metering device. In this configuration, they’re known as screw feeders. Through this, they’re able to begin a material process by metering product from a bin or hopper.
Conveyor Design Flexibility
This conveyor system type is well suited to horizontal, vertical, or inclined positions. While this depends largely on the application, they’re well suited to most configurations. They’re also completely enclosed, allowing them to contain the product and prevent spillage.
The design of these conveyor systems also makes them ideal for mixing product together. Alongside this, operators can also use them to break up lumps in product.
