Archimedys screw conveyor equips an eddy pond in a butterfly farming

What’s more exotic than going for a walk during the weekend in a garden where butterflies fly freely, around ponds surrounded by tropical plants and flowers ?


Group of blown butterfly on the ground. Archimedys screwIt’s in such a charming place that our Archimedes’ screw conveyor, Archimedys, has found its place.

One of our customer, a butterfly farmer, decided to equip one of his pond with our Archimedys screw conveyor in order to move marble balls and create eddies.

A traditional stainless steel screw conveyor wouldn’t have had as many advantages in such a place : noisy, less esthetic and quickly corroded.

That’s why our Archimedys screw was so adapted to the situation : the polymer used to make Archimedys screw reduces the noise during the use. Visitors are not disturbed by the functioning of the screw : they can make the most of the charming setting, with a total peace of mind. Complete change of scene guaranteed !

Furthermore, Archimedys screw conveyor is corrosion-resistant. Its resistance to corrosion or abrasion is far better than stainless steel screw. Thus, even plunged continuously in a fond, the screw resists to corrosion much longer than a stainless steel screw.

With its simple and compact design, Archimedys screw conveyor is very light in weight in comparison to stainless steel conveyor. It can be set up on the spot, without any welding, simply by assembling the modules.

In terms of maintenance, even then, there are plenty of advantages. Due to its modularity, when Archimedys screw conveyor needs to be repaired, you only have to change the damaged module and not the entire screw.

Installation and maintenance operations are becoming easier and faster : reduction of maintenance life cycle costs and no loss of productivity due to an extended shutdown.

With the arrival of plastic screw conveyor Archimedys on the market, it’s a real technology revolution that is currently happening to the conveying industry.

Many industries use archimedes’ screw conveyor to move, mix or separate bulk materials, more or less abrasive, such as seeds, micron powders, sand, pellets etc.

But now, the traditional stainless steel screw conveyor is being progressively replaced with modular Archimedys plastic screw conveyor : there are so many advantages that this screw is widely preferred by many industries.

We carry out technical studies and we make or have made mechanical parts necessary to install or to adapt our modular screw on your existing or new facilities.
