Conveyor technology

Conveyor technology is another of umtec’s fields of activity.
We manufacture customised tubular screw conveyors and trough screw conveyors that are used in many areas of the raw materials and processing industries.

Tubular screw conveyor

In order to overcome short to medium distances, which can have a gradient of up to 45°, a tubular screw conveyor is the best choice.


In this way, dry bulk materials can be transported particularly efficiently and - due to the enclosed transportation - dust-free. 
Tubular screw conveyors are suitable for powdery to fine-grained bulk materials.

We will be happy to inform you about the options available in meeting your individual requirements!

Trough screw conveyor

If bulk materials have to be conveyed slowly due to their properties, or if they tend to cake, a trough screw conveyor is the right choice.
The removable trough lid makes it particularly easy to maintain, and process monitoring is also easier here.


Powdery and fine-grained bulk materials can be transported, but coarse-grained materials (e.g. sewage sludge) are also possible.
Trough screw conveyors are suitable for short to medium distances.
