Screw Conveyor Components

Screw conveyors are one of the most popular forms of transporting, feeding and even processing powder bulk solids due to their availability, low cost and versatility. Thanks to the hard work by the Conveyors Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (CEMA), screw conveyors components are dimensionally standardized and interchangeable among manufacturers. This standardization is a huge benefit to the consumer by lowering upfront costs and allowing for sourcing of replacement components from a wide verity of sources, including ScrewConveyorParts.NET (Click HERE to shop screw conveyor components)

A screw conveyor or screw feeder consists of a number of individual components properly selected (by a ScrewConveyorParts.NET engineer) for the specific application and rate at which the screw conveyor is being designed.  All of the standard screw conveyor components are stocked by a wide variety of screw conveyor manufacturers.  Each individual screw conveyor component can be customized in thickness and material of construction, with even the basic design being improved to provide additional customization. This versatility makes the screw conveyor or screw feeder ideal for any powder bulk material handling including feed and grain, pet food, salt, sugar, flour, sand, cement, metal chips, ash, fish meal, peanuts, paper pulp and even meat!
