Screw Conveyer Usage in the Drilling Waste Management Equipment System

A screw conveyer or auger conveyer is a mechanism that uses a rotating helical screw blade, called a “flighting“, usually within a tube, to move liquid or granular materials. They are used in many bulk handling industries. Screw conveyors in modern industry are often used horizontally or at a slight incline as an efficient way to move semi-solid materials, including food waste, wood chips, aggregates, cereal grains, animal feed, boiler ash, meat, bone meal, municipal solid waste, and many others. The design of the conveyor is dependent on operating conditions, the type of transported material and its properties. Traffic enforcement can be controlled by changing the speed of propulsion.

Screw conveyers can be operated with the flow of materials inclined upward. When space allows, this is a very economical method of elevating and conveying. As the angle of inclination increases, the capacity of a given unit rapidly decreases. The rotating part of the conveyor is sometimes called simply an auger.

Features & Benefits
1. It has compact structure, small cross section, light weight, good sealing performance, highly efficient transportation, flexible technological layout, with ease of installation, dismantlement, motion and safe operation.
2. It is applicable to transport various kinds of soft materials such as powder, granular and small pieces of materials for example: clay, powder, pulverized coal, cement, sand, grain, small pieces of coal, cobble, cast iron filings, etc.
3. It is not applicable to transport materials that is of high viscosity and is easy to be curdled.
The waste produced by drilling operations, if not treated properly, will cause great harm to the envioronment, that is why more and more countries begin to set up regulations to minimize the oil on cuttings, so that the drill cuttings can be reused or.
