Screw Conveyors

Screw conveyorMaterials Research Centre developes, designs and manufactures screw conveyors and screw feeders for materials supply into technology line.

A screw conveyor is a device used in various industries to accurately meter or feed amorphous or loose grained materials from one part of a process to another.

A screw conveyor or auger conveyor is a mechanism that uses a rotating helical screw blade, mounted on a central shaft driven by different methods. This assembly rotates inside a tube fitted with a feeder mechanism at one end. Material is added at the feed end of the device and is transported to the discharge end by a process of positive displacement.

A feed screw is a component of certain types of industrial machinery that is designed to move, or feed, materials through a tube. Typically, a feed screw is a metal cylinder with an incline plane wound around its outside, resembling a long screw or auger.

Horizontal Screw conveyor.

Screw feeder basic function is moving of coke from the receiving bin into the calcination furnace. Source material inlet is designed for bulk materials loading. Auger moves bulk materials.  Screw feeder outlet is designed to discharge processed material.

Screw conveyor

Horizontal screw conveyor operates as follows:
Bulk material (coke) enters the source material inlet. After that it is conveyed by rotation of the auger into the screw outlet, where it is discharged from.

The source material is fed into a through, and is moving along it by rotating of the through. Screw feeder principle is applying of axial driving force.

Engineering drawing for the screw conveyor

Screw conveyor design have openings for maintenance.  Screw conveyor should have a collapsible design (or at least allow for) to provide for maintenance when necessary.

Screw conveyor unit consists of:
- source material inlet
- rotating helical screw blade (auger)
- ball bearings
- screw feeder outlet (for processed material)
- through (tube)
- screw feeder composes: electric motor, reduction drive and two couplings.

Horizontal screw conveyor was developed and manufactured for coke supply into technological line.

The initial step in engineering a Screw feeder is to analyze the physical characteristics of the material and the rate at which it is to be handled.

Our engineers are available to assist you in every way possible to determine your best feeder design. Since the Screw feeder selected is based on a maximum volume control of material to be handled, surge loads, overloads and choke feeding must be accounted for in the screw feeder design.

We determine your material classification and required capacity. After size is determined then is determined exact screw feeder speed.

MXene gas sensorsMXene is one of the most sensitive gas sensors ever reported that sniff out chemicals in the air to warn us about everything from fires to carbon monoxide to drunk drivers to explosive devices hidden in luggage have improved so much that they can even detect diseases on a person’s breath. Researchers from Drexel University and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have made a discovery that could make our best “chemical noses” even more sensitive.

Partial breaking of the Coulombic ordering of ionic liquids confined in carbon nanopores

An international team of researchers, including Drexel's Yury Gogotsi, PhD, observed that ions will forgo their typical alternating charge ordering when they are forced to jam into a small, sub-nanometer-sized, space — a behavior modification not unlike people relinquishing personal space in order to pack into a crowded subway car. The discovery could lead to safer energy storage devices and better water filtration membranes.In their most recent paper in Nature Materials researcher from Drexel University led by prof. Yury Gogotsi showed that Coulombic ordering reduces when the pores can accommodate only a single layer of ions. The non-Coulombic ordering is further enhanced in the presence of an applied electric potential.
