A screw conveyor or auger conveyor is a mechanism that uses a rotating helical screw blade (flighting), usually within a gutter or tube, to move liquid or granular materials. Screw converyors are used in many bulk handling industries. Screw conveyors in modern industry are often used horizontally or at a slight incline as an efficient way to move semi-solid materials, including food waste, wood chips, aggregates, animal feed, boiler ash, municipal solid waste, and many others. They usually consist of a trough or tube containing either a spiral blade coiled around a shaft or shaftless spiral, held at one end and driven at the other. Screw conveyors can be operated with the flow of material inclined upward. When space allows, this is a very economical method of elevating and conveying.
