About the Solution:
The TRIDENT Shaftless Screw Conveyor is a great option for conveying otherwise difficult to handle bulk materials. It is used on the backend of livestock waste processing systems for the disposal and conveyance of processed manure solids or nutrient cake, which typically is in the solids content range of 20-35%. The Shaftless Screw Conveyor is a great addition to Trident dewatering equipment like the MD Press. An optional electrical control panel or integration into the plant’s automation is available.
Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
NOTE: There are multiple technologies that are used as part of integrated manure management systems and yet are not manure management types on their own. The impact of these technologies on their own would be minimal or very difficult to quantify.
General Support & Other:
- Can be an integral part of many manure management systems
- Most projects have at least some equipment that supports operations of the main technology
- This technology is not evaluated on its own, the NEAT Matrix for this technology is neutral unless utilized with other technologies.
Designed to handle difficult solids the Shaftless Screw Conveyor represents an additional component to the Trident line. Trident has a reputation for well built equipment that works as promised and the introduction of this new component allows them to address one more problem that they have seen in the field. At this time the Trident Shaftless Screw Conveyor does not have a 9-point score as Newtrient is not aware of any dairy installations.
