Custom Fabricated Screw Conveyors for the Battery Recycling Industry
The recycling and material handling sectors are more efficient than ever thanks to constantly-improving equipment and production processes. These industries have turned an eye toward sustainability in an effort to become as lean, clean, and environmentally friendly as possible – especially in the case of modern battery recycling operations.
Battery recycling is a highly specialized industrial service. Recyclers employ a multitude of advanced mechanical, thermal, and chemical processes which are engineered to break down the necessary battery components while preserving all precious metals and materials.
Of course, the complexity of the whole operation means that battery recyclers also need the best, most accurate and efficient material handling equipment available. That’s why more and more recycling companies are turning to custom metal fabrication shops such as Alloy Fabrication to manufacture custom screw conveyors, material handling systems, and other uniquely engineered production line equipment.
Screw Conveyors for Efficient Material Handling in Battery Recycling Operations
Sometimes referred to as helix or auger conveyors, screw conveyors are highly efficient and extremely durable material handling systems. They utilize a large industrial-sized screw mechanism as a conveyor to separate and transport bulk products or raw materials. The relative simplicity of the screw construction offers higher reliability and less maintenance when compared to more complex conveyor systems.
Their versatility and reliability makes screw conveyors ideal for battery recyclers and related material handling operations.
