Tetra Pak® Screw Conveyor ET is specifically designed to convey and/or dose any type of granulated or powder components over short distances.
Depending on the application, the inlets and outlets can be customized. The pressurized bearing concept ensures that no powder can enter the bearings.
The conveyor can easily be installed and dismantled thanks to the quick-coupling shaft design. The fully stainless steel sanitary design is suitable for the food, plastic and chemical industries for products with MIE > 3mJ.
Tetra Pak Screw Conveyor ET is fed by gravity (below hopper, dumping station, etc). An inclination up to 30° is possible. The product is transferred from the inlet to the outlet of the tube by an Archimedes screw.
This heavy-duty screw (internal shaft) is driven by a direct- coupled gear motor. For dosing applications, the gear motor can be connected to a frequency inverter in order to adjust the speed for fine dosing.
The screw pitch is specifically designed to both regulate the flow and avoid product compression. The outflow capacity is up to 53 m3/h.
