SCP Solution – Dumpster Leveling Screw

Leveling screw conveyor for a dumpster
14in diameter x 22ft long leveling screw conveyor with dumpster cover.
Gulftec contacted Screw Conveyor Parts with a common challenge. As part of an environmental solution for dust control in a manufacturing facility a lot of saw dust is generated, collected and disposed of. The old system conveyed the sawdust to an open top dumpster using a screw conveyor with three discharges. This design created its own environmental problems whenever the wind would blow causing the saw dust to be sent airborne. Also, the three outlets on the screw conveyor created three humps in the dumpster and left a lot of unused space. The old design was never intended to solve all the current needs of this facility and needed to be replaced with an engineered solution.
Screw Conveyor Parts engineers worked closely with Gulftec to custom design a solution for their application. Fortunately, this was not the first time SCP had encountered this problem and already had a past successful solution to draw from. Incorporating a 14in diameter leveling screw into a dumpster cover would allow the sawdust to be evenly distributed across the dumpster and prevent the sawdust in the dumpster from being sent airborne by the wind. In addition, the cover was engineered to allow a multi-point winch system to lift the entire assembly so the dumpster could be hauled off when full. This custom solution went from concept to reality in only a matter of weeks thanks to SCP’s streamlined approach to engineering and manufacturing.
