A salt is lifted at 4 m (13’) to the top of the mixing unit with two screw conveyors DN100 4’’ at 45°. The possibility to adjust the design of the Archimedes screw in order to ensure the efficiency of the conveyor without intermediate bearing was the key of success.
Other benefit, no noise when the screw conveyor is in operation and no corrosion issues anymore due to the polymer nature of Archimedys modules.
