Pipe or trough worm conveyors are designed for transportation in horizontal or inclined directions. They can be used to transport loose or cut material. They can be used separately or incorporated into production lines.
The stainless steel structure combined with plastic components is designed to enable easy cleaning. The conveyor is driven by a worm gear with an electric motor located on the drive shaft. Bevel gears are used for larger devices. The bases below the conveyors have adjustable feet or castors.
Worm conveyors can be of a standard design or with special modifications, according to the customers’ requirements (see worm separating conveyor).
The device is made of stainless steel structure (quality according to DIN 1.4301), including the connecting material of quality A2 and plastic components. All materials used have been certified for direct contact with food.

The separating worm conveyor is designed for the transportation of waste from red beet drum grinders to the transportation box. The waste consists of overcooked bits of red beet peel, mixed with rinse water. During the transportation, water is separated from the waste using a slot sieve that forms the bottom of the conveyor trough. Water flows through the slot sieve onto the floor. The conveyor is designed for mounting on a beet grinder; however, it can also be used for similar applications with other devices.
