FMW Non Wood Storing Solution- Travelling Screw


Efficient Material Discharge and Storage Optimization with Travelling Screw

The demand for paper products is growing due to rising income levels, urbanization, and increased education and literacy rates. To meet these demands, mill management professionals seek advanced technologies that can optimize their processes. Introducing the Travelling Screw, a solution designed to address these challenges and ensure smooth material discharge from silos while maximizing storage space.

Features of the Travelling Screw

The Travelling Screw is an ingenious solution for efficient material discharge and storage optimization. It features a V-shaped silo design and a longitudinally movable screw conveyor, ensuring smooth material flow and preventing blockages. This unique design allows for greater storage volume compared to round silos, optimizing space utilization and making it particularly useful for heavy materials where floor pressure becomes critical.

Benefits of FMW’s Travelling Screw

By employing FMW’s Travelling Screw in your material handling processes, you can experience a range of benefits, including:

  • Increased efficiency in material discharge and storage, leading to improved overall productivity
  • Enhanced cost savings due to optimized storage space utilization
  • Reduced risk of material blockages and bridging, ensuring a smooth material flow

How it works:

The Travelling Screw is positioned inside the silo with a V-shaped design, allowing it to move longitudinally and facilitating the discharge of material from the silo. The V-shaped silo wall prevents spillage, as the material naturally conforms to the angle of repose. This efficient design ensures a smooth and controlled flow of materials, eliminating the risk of blockages and optimizing storage space.
