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
SCREW , DRAG , AND BUCKET ELEVATOR CONVEYORS APPROVED FOR DISTRIBUTION BY THE SCREW CONVEYOR SECTION OF THE CONVEYOR EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION It is the responsibility of the contractor, installer, owner and user to install, maintain and operate the conveyor, components and, conveyor
The initial step in engineering a Screw Conveyor is to analyze the physical characteristics of the material and the rate at which it is to be handled. The capacity of a Screw Conveyor should be defined in terms of cubic feet per hour. It is also important to determine the maximum capacity the conveyor will be required to handle.

Screw conveyor troughs must be assembled straight and true with no distortion. If anchor bolts are not in line, either move them or slot the conveyor feet or saddle holes. Use shims under feet as required to achieve correct alignment.
Use proper safe tools and methods in installation of screw conveyors to prevent injury. After trough assembly, assembly of conveyor screws should always begin at the thrust end. Most screw conveyors can be designed with little thought given to thrust as the thrust force in an ordinary screw conveyor is moderate and
The Engineering Guide provides the necessary information for selecting a screw conveyor in a series of five steps. These steps are arranged in logical order and are divided into separate sections for simplicity. The five steps are: Establish characteristics of
Never walk on conveyor covers, gratings, or guards. Do not use conveyor for any purpose other than that which it was intended. Do not poke or prod material into the conveyor with a bar or stick inserted through the openings. Conveyors are not normally manufactured or designed to handle materials that are hazardous to personnel.
