A 16-inch diameter screw conveyor will convey 2,496 cubic feet per hour at the maximum recommended speed of 80-rpm. The actual screw conveyor speed is calculated by dividing the Selection Capacity by the capacity at 1-rpm. 1,873/31.2 = 60-rpm
Screw Conveyor Engineering Guide 95% Loaded Conveyors Conveyor loadings may sometime exceed the recommended % of Loading, listed in the materials table. Considerations as to the material characteristics may justify up to 95% loading of tubular or shrouded conveyors.
Screw Feeder Capacity The capacity table on pg. 20 shows Screw Feeder Capacities in cubic feet per hour per RPM. This table relates to full pitch or standard conveyors only. Shorter pitch flighting will convey a capacity in direct ratio to the capacity of the full pitch.
Screw Conveyor Engineering Guide A capacity table is provided on the next section to aid you in calculation of proper conveyor size. To use this table, find the capacity at maximum RPM, opposite the recommended percentage of conveyor loading, which equals or exceeds the capacity of material required per hour.
A typical screw conveyor design is shown below : Figure 1 : Screw conveyor principle drawing and key components. 2. Design procedure of a screw conveyor How to calculate the size and capacity of a screw feeder ? Known : capacity required of the screw conveyor, material Unknown : screw size and characteristics. 2.1 General formula
sCReW COnVeYOR CaPaCITY Example a screw conveyor is required to transport 10 tons per hour of unslaked lime with a bulk density of 60 lbs/ft3. The unslaked lime also needs to be mixed in transit using cut and folded flights . The conveying distance is 15-feet, so short (2/3) pitch screws will be used to ensure proper mixing . The
