Screw conveyors are designed for moving and distributing bulk material. Some common types of screw conveyors include horizontal/inclined shafted screw conveyors (the most common type of screw conveyor used for bulk material handling), shaftless screw conveyors (typically used with sticky, high moisture and viscous loads), screw feeders and live bottom conveyors (used to move various types of loads at a constant and controlled speed and usually incorporate more than one gearbox) and vertical screw conveyors (used to move dry or semi-fluid loads at very steep inclines).
For design engineers and equipment manufacturers, choosing between worm gears vs. bevel gears can make a huge impact on efficiency and operating cost. In this article, we'll explore the key benefits of worm and bevel gears to help you determine which may work best for your application.
