Acid-Treatment Screw Conveyor

Acid-Treatment Screw Conveyor
THISTED - The screw conveyor is integrated into the ship reception section and is designed to primarily treat potentially problematic products that are imported for the production of animal feed.

Felleskjøpet Rogaland Agder is a cooperative that has been a Cimbria customer for several years, having purchased both stand-alone machines and plant equipment.

In 2010, Felleskjøpet Rogaland Agder purchased a screw conveyor for the transport / acid treatment of grain. The screw conveyor was an SU500 with a length of 12 m and represented an integral part of the increase in capacity of the firm’s grain reception facility. Trough, cover and endplates were painted, whilst the inner screw and screw thread were produced in stainless steel AISI 304. In 2016, an investment was made in the modification of the reception and cleaning section, which involved a variety of equipment from Cimbria, including an acid-treatment screw conveyor of type SU500 with a length of 12 m and with all components coming into contact with the product manufactured in stainless steel AISI 304.

Due to great satisfaction with previous deliveries and solutions, in early summer 2018 the customer therefore decided to invest in yet another screw conveyor for the transport and acid-treatment of grain and flour products. This time a type SU700 with a length of 17 m was installed to meet capacity requirements. As with the screw conveyor delivered to the customer in 2016, all components coming into contact with the product are manufactured in stainless steel AISI 304. The screw conveyor is constructed with holes for nozzles for injection of acid. Furthermore, “scoops” are welded onto the inner screw in order to ensure good treatment of the product. Perspex is fitted at three points on the cover of the screw conveyor, in addition to cable trays along the entire length of the screw conveyor.

The screw conveyor is integrated into the ship reception section and is designed to primarily treat potentially problematic products that are imported for the production of animal feed.
