How Reclaimers Work

Laidig specializes in screw-type bottom reclaimers. Laidig reclaimers (with the exception of the Cleansweep and Fluidized Screw systems) are designed to start and operate under full material load. The screw rotates about its own axis augering material toward the center of the silo floor. At the same time, the screw slowly advances, sweeping around the entire silo floor. Material augered to the center of the silo floor, then flows down through a center chute below the floor and into a discharge auger or conveyor for transfer out of the silo and to the next step in the material handling process.
