Archimedys modular screw conveyor usable in explosive atmosphere ATEX23 Jun 2017, by Archimedys in
Today, conveying industry is revolutionizing with the arrival of Archimedys modular plastic screw conveyor.
Many industries use archimedes’ screw conveyor to move, mix or separate seeds, micron powders, sand, wastes etc. But now, the classical stainless steel screw conveyor is being progressively replaced by Archimedys plastic screw conveyor : there are so many advantages that this screw is widely preferred by several industries.
With its simple and compact design, Archimedys screw conveyor is very light in weight in comparison to stainless steel conveyor : one can easily handle it. Therefore installation and maintenance become easier.
Due to its light weight, it effectively reduces the horsepower usefull to work and reduces energy involved.
Moreover, when the Archimedys screw conveyor needs to be repaired, you only have to change the damaged module and not the entire screw which also reduces maintenance life cycle costs.
Archidemys screw conveyor exists in a version which is compliant to the European ATEX directives. You can use it in an environment in which an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air is present (ZONE 20 ATEX).
An explosion can occur with only a very few quantity of energy so everything has to be done to avoid static electricity. Archimedys screw conveyor exists in a U4 version made with conductor polymers which evacuate static electricity and make the operations secured. It’s really THE solution to avoid explosion risks.
One of our Swedish costumer chose with success Archimedys screw conveyor to build a separator of solid wastes mixed with solvent.
Due to the polymer nature of Archimedys modules, Archimedys screw is very resistant to corrosion, even from chimical agressive products. You won’t have any issues of corrosion or abrasion anymore. Its resistance is far better than stainless steel screw.
This type of conveyor is perfect for industries who are looking for a high level of service ability and easy to use.
Archimedys screw conveyor is a real revolution for conveying bulk materials.
