MSC - Trough Screw Conveyors for Flour Mills

Project Description

Description - The MSC Trough Screw Conveyors are a customized version of the CA modular trough screw conveyor system. They are used in the flour milling industry, especially for conveying cereal grains, flour, and by-products such as bran. MSC Screw Conveyors are manufactured from carbon steel with food-grade surface finishing. They are made up from a U-shape trough that is equipped with at least one outlet spout, an end plate at each trough end, helicoid screw flighting welded on a centre pipe with a coupling bush at each end, two end bearing assemblies complete with shaft sealing unit, a number of intermediate hanger bearings with self-lubricating bushes depending on the overall length of the screw conveyor, and bolted trough covers. Furthermore, MSC Trough Screw Conveyors are equipped with a gear motor that suits the application. MSC Trough Screw Conveyors come in a light-duty design only and they are available with ATEX, zone 22 certification.

Function - MSC Trough Screw Conveyors have been specially designed for handling powdery and granular materials in flour mills. Their design, their special finishing grade, and the vast range of options and accessories take the requirements of the flour milling industry into particular consideration.
