Omega screws allow you to quickly switch from one product to another without the risk of contamination. This is because this system, deployed as a screw elevator, has flip-top covers, which make it easy to clean and inspect. These Omega inclined screw conveyors are commonly used to elevate product to higher discharge points.
An omega elevating system consists of a conveyor screw that rotates in a specially profiled trough. The system is fitted with:
Omega inclined screw conveyors combine all the features of trough screw conveyors and tube conveyors. Multiple lids enable cleaning and inspection of both screw and trough. Elevation from low to high is possible thanks to the (inverted) “omega” profile of the trough screw conveyor.
Among other applications, Omega inclined screw conveyors are used in extrusion lines, for filling mixers or feeding packaging machine hoppers. Or for elevating explosion-sensitive products (ATEX) such as starch, flour and other powders to higher-level production machines. Read the case studies for the experiences of companies using our Omega inclined screw conveyors.
Omega inclined screw conveyors are able to elevate product up to a 90° angle (vertically). This is ideal when you need to bridge a height in a confined space using quick-to-clean inclined screw conveyors.
