Our Screw Conveyor Elevators

Prime is a top conveyor manufacturer in Australia. Prime’s screw conveyors are industrially designed to facilitate the seamless movement of bulk materials between designated locations. These conveyors consist of a tube or trough housing a rotating helical screw blade, which effectively transports materials along its entire length. A motor drives the screw blade, applying rotational force to propel the materials forward. Leveraging their versatility, screw conveyors are extensively employed in agriculture, mining, food processing, and manufacturing industries, optimizing material handling and enhancing operational efficiency.

Screw Conveyor Features

Helical Screw Blade

Prime’s screw conveyors feature a helical screw blade that rotates within a tube or trough. This design allows the conveyor to effectively move materials along its length.


Prime’s screw conveyors can handle a wide range of bulk materials, including powders, grains, flakes, pellets, and granular materials. They can be designed to accommodate different material properties, such as moisture content, abrasiveness, and stickiness.


Prime’s screw conveyors can be designed in various configurations to suit specific applications. This includes horizontal conveyors, inclined conveyors, and vertical conveyors. The conveyor can also be customized with multiple inlets or outlets, allowing for efficient material distribution.

Capacity and Length

Prime’s screw conveyors can be designed to handle different capacities and lengths, depending on the requirements of the application. The capacity is determined by factors such as the diameter of the screw, the pitch of the screw blade, and the rotational speed.

Compact Design

Prime’s screw conveyors have a compact design, which makes them suitable for installations with limited space. They can be easily integrated into existing production lines or arranged in a modular fashion to fit specific layouts.

Easy Maintenance

Prime’s screw conveyors are relatively simple in design, making them easy to maintain. They typically have few moving parts and require minimal lubrication. Regular inspections and cleaning of the conveyor components are usually sufficient for upkeep.

Control Options

Prime’s screw conveyors can be equipped with various control options to optimize their performance. This includes speed control mechanisms, level sensors to prevent overfilling, and emergency stop systems for safety.

Material Options

Prime’s screw conveyors can be constructed from a variety of materials, such as carbon steel, stainless steel, or specialty alloys, depending on the material being transported and the environmental conditions. This ensures compatibility with different industries and applications.

Safety Features

Prime’s screw conveyors can be equipped with safety features like guards, covers, and emergency stop buttons to ensure the protection of operators and prevent accidents.
