Conveyor screws are considered to be a very inefficient mode of transportation of materials. One of the reasons is because the wear on the flights is uneven along the length of the screw. The discharge end wears more and renders the screw ineffective even though most of the screw is still in very good condition.
Replacing a conveyor screw can be expensive, not only because of the cost of a new one and of the maintenance costs associated with the operation, but also because of the loss of production.
S.P.R.S. has been able to increase dramatically the life of conveyor screws in severely abrasive service. By analyzing the nature of the service and addressing the specific wear pattern of the screws, S.P.R.S. has been able to increase lifespans by as much as 17 times!
