Substituting, we have Γ is the non dimensional screw geometry factor (0.116815). Using this in equation (1) a volumetric throughput of 4.09m3/s was obtained. The data used in this study are the experimental results obtained by Kadurumba [2] using a Cassava Centrifuge Dewatering Machine. The radial clearance C of the screw conveyor was chosen to be at least 1.5 times larger than the maximum ...

Flow, speed and dimensionsCalculation of the nominal flow can be done once the screw geometry, its rotation speed and the filling coefficient are known.The flow rate of a screw conveyor or feeder depends on a number of interlinked factors: -geometry of the screw -rotation speed -inclination -geometry of the feed hopper and tube -flowability of the material. The risk of backflow increases with ...

Warning : It must be noted that those formula aim at giving an idea of the size of the screw conveyor (which means its diameter) and the speed at which it will operate, based on some assumptions and some design decisions (choice of screw pitch, inclination). The formula can also be used to roughly check the capacity of an existing screw feeder. They are not meant for a detail design and for ...
