Twin Screw Feeder for Metering Wood Shavings at American Wood ...

American Wood Fibers (AWF) is the largest producer of wood shavings, wood flour and other natural fiber products in the US and is committed to developing products that will enhance the quality of life for people, pets and livestock. AWF products are used as bedding for pets and livestock, clean burning pellet fuel for heat, and fillers and enhancers for many industrial markets. AWF partners with local wood products companies located in the timber regions and utilizes the wood waste produced in the making of finished lumber products. At the manufacturing facility in Marshall, Texas, AWF needed a screw feeder to control the flow of wood shavings from a hopper to a bagging system. Wood shavings are difficult to store and meter because they interlock or mat together. AWF was working with Central Mechanical to help solve the problem and improve the bulk material handling systems at the plant. Central Mechanical specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of conveying and mate... See full list on kwsmfg.com See full list on kwsmfg.com The existing screw feeder was a source of continuous problems. After testing samples of the wood shavings, KWS offered a new screw feeder design that would evenly feed the bagging system. KWS designed the screw feeder with twin screws to prevent the wood shavings from bridging and interlocking in the hopper. The twin-screw design provided a much larger opening for the wood shavings to transition from the hopper to the screw feeder. KWS is staffed with 9 degreed Mechanical Engineers and three Professional Engineers who met the challenge to design and manufacture the new twin-screw feeder. See full list on kwsmfg.com KWS designed and manufactured a twin-screw feeder with independent drive units. Each of the twin screws is reversible and can meter wood shavings to a bagging system on each end of the screw feeder. One bagging system is currently in use while the second system is for future expansion. The new KWS twin-screw feeder was designed and manufactured with a unique pitch design to provide consistent flow to the bagging system while being fully reversible. Since the wood shavings tend to interlock, KWS added breaker bars on each screw at the discharge to facilitate even flow into the bagging system. A strike-off plate at the leading edge of the discharge controls flow. Each screw was powered by individual drive units and controlled by variable frequency drives (VFDs) so the output speed of each screw could be varied independently. Integral drive units with C-face motors eliminated the need for V-belt drives and potential maintenance issues. << Back to Index See full list on kwsmfg.com

Types of Screw Feeders | Engineering Guide

The inlet of a screw feeder is always flood loaded (100-percent). A screw feeder is typically mounted directly to a: See full list on kwsmfg.com Most screw feeders are less than 20-feet in length because the use of internal hanger bearings is not recommended. In most applications a short screw feeder will meter a bulk material to a screw conveyor for transfer to the next step of the process. See full list on kwsmfg.com It is not recommended to design screw feeders with uniform outside diameter and constant pitch because bulk materials will fill the screw from the rear of the inlet opening first, creating rat-holing, stagnant material and possible bridging of bulk materials above the screw feeder. To draw bulk materials evenly across the full length of the inlet each flight must increase in available volume as the screw progresses towards the discharge of the screw feeder. Variable pitch, tapered outside diameter (OD) or mass flow screw design is required. Inclined screw feeders are typically designed with multiple flight pitch changes. Shorter flight pitches are used in the inlet section to control the capacity or feed rate. Typically, the flight pitch increases beyond the inlet to reduce the trough loading to less than 100-percent. The conveying efficiency must be calculated in the longer flight pitch section to make sure the desired capacity or feed rate is met. Improper design of the flight pitches could result in the inclined screw feeder becoming plugged at the transition from shorter to longer pitch flights. See full list on kwsmfg.com Screw feeders must be equipped with a shroud for at least 2 pitches beyond the inlet opening to prevent flooding of the bulk material past the inlet. The shroud is a curved cover that converts a standard U-trough into a tubular housing to prevent bulk materials from flooding past the screw. Extended shrouds, tubular housings or short pitch flights can be utilized for accurate feed rate control when metering very free flowing bulk materials. See full list on kwsmfg.com Most screw feeder speeds are lower than standard screw conveyor speeds. For example, in heavy industrial applications, screw feeders typically operate at speeds less than 20-RPM. More torque is generated at lower operating speeds ensuring the screw feeder does not stall at start-up. See full list on kwsmfg.com Inclined screw feeders meter and elevate bulk materials from hoppers, bins or silos and perform the same function as horizontal screw feeders. However, special care is required when designing inclined screw feeders. See full list on kwsmfg.com Knowledge of the flow characteristics of bulk materials is extremely important for successful inclined screw feeder design. The angle of repose and flowability of a bulk material will determine the design of the screw feeder and the maximum angle of incline. Testing of bulk materials is required for all inclined screw feeders before a proper design can be established. Bulk material samples can be sent to KWS for laboratory and field testing. See full list on kwsmfg.com Inclined screw feeders must be designed to meter a desired capacity or feed rate and elevate a bulk material to a desired height. Screw feeders become less efficient when inclined over 5-degrees from the horizontal position. The loss of efficiency is determined based on the degree of incline of the screw feeder and the angle of repose and flowability of the bulk material. The diameter of the inclined screw feeder can be selected once the incline efficiency factor is determined. See full list on kwsmfg.com Inclined screw feeders utilizing U-troughs are typically used on inclines up to 15-degrees and tubular housings are recommended for inclines over 15-degrees. Reducing the pitch of the screw increases the incline efficiency factor because the shorter pitch provides a better conveying surface and bulk materials do not fall back when compared to full pitch flights. Full pitch flights are the least efficient at metering and conveying bulk materials on an incline. Inclined screw feeders typically operate at higher speeds when compared to horizontal screw feeders because additional speed is required to elevate a bulk material and overcome the forces of gravity and bulk material fall back. The desired capacity is adjusted using the incline efficiency factor calculated from testing of the bulk material. The speed of the inclined screw feeder can then be determined. Inclined screw feeders require more horsepower and torque when compared to a horizontal screw feeder. Additional horsepower and torque is required to elevate a bulk material and overcome the forces of gravity and bulk material fall back. Bulk materials can become packed inside an inclined screw feeder, causing more demand on the drive unit. See full list on kwsmfg.com The inlet length on an inclined screw feeder must be kept to a minimum to prevent the bulk material from falling back over the top of the flights in the inlet section. Typically, the length of the inlet should not exceed 2 times the diameter of the screw for an inclined screw feeder. See full list on kwsmfg.com
