#### Screw Conveyor Capacity Engineering Guide

Capacity is defined as the weight or volume per hour of a bulk material that can be safely and feasibly conveyed using a screw conveyor. Screw conveyor diameter is determined by multiple factors including capacity. The following steps are required for proper screw conveyor selection: Calculate required capacity in cubic feet per hour (ft 3 /hr).

#### Inclined Screw Conveyors

A standard Screw Conveyor inclined 15° upward will carry 75% of its rated horizontal capacity. At an inclination of 25°, a standard conveyor may only handle 50% of its horizontal capacity. These are estimated figures and will vary with the characteristic of the material being handled. Inclined Screw Conveyor capacities can be increased over

#### Calculate Horsepower For Inclined Screw Conveyors

Jan 09, 2008 Care should be taken to empty the conveyor before shut-down to avoid overload start-up conditions. Due to the fallback created in inclined screw conveyors by tumbling and agitation, the amount of material being pushed forward through the conveyor is reduced. To offset this loss of capacity, increased screw rotation is applied.

TYPes Of sCReW COnVeYORs Inclined Screw Conveyors inclined screw conveyors typically operate from slightly above the horizontal position to 45-degrees from the horizontal position . above 45-degrees an inclined screw conveyor is considered a vertical screw conveyor and must be designed in accordance with the kwS Engineering Guide

### How To Calculate Inclined Screw Conveyor Capacity

C = inclination correction factor. Step 1 : define the requirement. Define the capacity required for the screw conveyor. The design of the screw must reach a capacity equal or greater than this value. Example : the requirement for a screw conveying sugar is 3500 kg/h. Step 2 : calculate the capacity of the screw conveyor.
