Screw Conveyors: Features & Integration Guide

U-Trough Screw Conveyors:
NBE u-trough screw conveyors are most often integrated into material processing operations where the need to clean the conveyor is required. NBE u-trough screw conveyors are constructed for long-term industrial use. A solid core auger design, and heavy-gauge carbon steel trough construction will easily support and transfer dense materials, over long runs.

Any material handling system depends on its ability to convey materials from storage areas to work areas throughout your operation, automatically, economically, and reliably. Whether conveying dry bulk materials into overhead storage bins or moving material from mixing and storage areas to processing points throughout the plant, NBE offers the components required to do the job quickly, quietly, and dust-free.

Flexible and Solid Core auger conveyors are designed to convey most any dry, free-flowing material; powders, granules, blends, crystals, flakes, and more. These auger systems require low maintenance, are easily installed, and completely enclosed to guard against costly material spillage and contamination.

From standard material conveying needs to fully automated, complex material distribution systems call the experts at NBE. Our years of experience in design and installation of auger conveying systems ensures we can provide the most efficient and productive system possible. Taking into account particular material characteristics and production applications, NBE offers standard and custom-designed systems that will meet your specific auger conveying needs.

Solid Core Tube-type Screw Conveyors:
NBE solid core screw conveyors are a critical component in the design of a bulk material transfer system. When material integrity is a process concern, NBE tube-type screw conveyors protect material from contaminants during the entire transfer length. Whether a simple point-to-point transfer, or a fully automated, plant-wide system. NBE solid core auger conveyors will protect your material and ensure dependable material feed to your processing operations.

Flexible Tube-type Screw Conveyors:
NBE flexible tube screw conveyors are designed with a coreless auger. This flexible feature allows the screw conveyor auger and tube to bend around equipment or facility obstructions that would prevent the use of solid core or u-trough conveyor types. Whether a simple point-to-point transfer, or a fully automated, plant-wide system. NBE flexible, enclosed auger conveyors will protect your material and ensure dependable material feed for your processing operations.

NBE helicon conveyors are perfect for your free-flowing bulk materials handling needs. These light-duty conveyors are low-cost, high-capacity, and they're engineered to last.

Our helical screw conveyors make the transfer of materials from a storage area to a workstation faster, easier, and safer than ever before.

Helicon conveyors offer economical, automatic conveying of powders, crystals, flakes, granules, and blends from station to station. Speed the transfer of plastics, food ingredients, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and chemicals to blending equipment or temporary storage bins.

Quickly and easily transfer the contents of boxes, bags, and drums from storage areas to overhead hoppers or other processing points throughout the plant.

One NBE helicon system can be set up to feed multiple bins and machine hoppers. And because the auger is completely enclosed, the transfer is a quiet, dust-free operation.

Not only are NBE helical screw conveyors easy to operate and efficient, they do the hard labor so your employees don't have to. These conveyors literally take the backache out of handling bulk materials. Production employees work safer, faster, and more efficient. NBE helicons are easy to install and set up. Simply position the intake hopper and discharge head wherever they're needed, then let the helical screw conveyor do all of the work.

Helicon auger conveyors can go over and around equipment, and they can be designed to go through immovable obstacles like walls and floors.

Move material vertically or laterally. Set up a 40 ft vertical flow or an 80 ft horizontal flow in just minutes. Or, set up a relay of conveyors and move materials even greater distances, such as from room to room, building to building or even outdoor to indoor.

The helicon's only moving part is its completely enclosed auger, which is driven by a standard, electric motor. The auger is fully enclosed to provide quiet, dust-free operation, and also to prevent costly product contamination and loss due to spills and splashes.

NBE can engineer and build a custom, fully automated, comprehensive distribution system or help you set up a standard materials conveying system to meet your needs. We can also modify a system to fit your operation.

For over a generation we have been engineering and building processing equipment to meet the demands of everyday inline performance. So we know the rigors our equipment has to go through. That's why all of our products are built to last.

NBE offers helicon, solid core, U-trough, and Cobra augers. These augers can be enclosed in materials suitable to any product or industry.

Drive head boxes are offered in stainless steel or economical polyethylene. These food-grade boxes resist material accumulation and backup.

NBE offers stationary conveyors as well as portable units. All models offer an optional boom to secure the drive box and discharge head.

Stationary models bring the work to the conveyor, and portable models bring the conveyor to the work. Portable models have either lifttruck channels or caster-mounted frames for easy positioning and handling.

Changeover from one material to another in just minutes. It's just this simple: reverse the auger rotation, remove the bottom end cap, and flush the casing. You're done. In minutes.

All conveyor assemblies are impervious to most industrial cleaning agents.

From a single component to a complete turnkey operation, NBE has a helicon to meet your needs.
