General Purpose (GP) Screw with Conveying Action

Label: General Purpose (GP) Screw with Conveying Action

Action: The GP screw performs the four major functions;
1. Feed, or Solids Conveying
2. Melting
3. Pumping
4. Homogenizing

However, most GP designs do a poor job of Melting and Homogenizing. Note the laminar movement and “Z-pattern” of the balls along the axis of the screw.
