Morillon’s Hydrascrew system

Morillon’s Hydrascrew system allows difficult-to-flow materials, whether heavy, light, powdery or damp, to be stored in flat bottom silos.

Morillon’s Hydrascrew system

The Hydrascrew system relies on hydraulic transmission, using an Archimedean screw, driven by a direct-couple hydraulic motor, to sweep the bottom of the cell through 360° and ensure discharge of the product following the First In First Out (FIFO) principle. The hydraulic transmission system allows for transmission at high low-speed torques, due to the use of the Morillon start-up booster system.

The Hydrascrew also allows for full silo maintenance, the regulation of speed without the loss of efficiency and a high level of reliability.

The Hydrascrew can be used in silos from 2 – 25 m in dia. And allows discharge capacities of up to 420m3/h, depending on the product.

Additionally, Morillon offers the All-in-one system, which adds a hydraulic power-pack to the Hydrascrew unloader, reduces the space requirement and can be easily installed due to the Plug and Play system. The All-in-one system can be used for silos 4 – 18 m in dia. And allows discharge capcities up to 310 m3/h, depending on the product.
