Twin Shaft Screw Feeders
BU Twin Shaft Screw Feeders are an option for users who require particularly efficient discharging/feeding from bins or hoppers.
They are designed for handling of non homogeneous materials (wood chippings, paper, etc.), materials from the flour milling industry (bran, flour, etc.), and bridging materials (e.g. sawdust, soy, etc.).
BU Twin Shaft Screw Feeders are equipped with a tapered inlet trough following the shape of the tapered inlet sections of the two screws, enclosing them almost completely from below at minimum clearance.
BU Screw Feeders are manufactured from carbon steel. The upper trough flange is fitted to match the outlet of the bin or hopper.
