- Screw conveyors can have multiple inlet and discharge points. They can be customized for requirements needed by customer.
- Screw conveyors are very flexible when customizing them. This gives Anderson Dahlen leverage to install the conveyors on congested manufacturing floors.
- Screw conveyors are closed off to prevent any type of product from leaking or spilling. They can be designed and installed vertically, horizontally, or at an angle.
- Screw conveyors can be used for mixing numerous products together and for breaking up large pieces.
- Screw conveyors can be designed without a center pipe. These are important when dealing with materials that are thick and are a sludge or biosolid like material.
