German term or phrase:Foerderspirale
Related to bulk materials handling systems.
Could this be synonymous with 'Foerderschnecke' meaning 'screw conveyor'?
Also, in the same context: Zellenradschleuse.
Is that a rotary valve?
Thanks for your help. That was the term I was most keen to have confirmed.
AS to Auger, we also use that term in Australia, but screw conveyor is the more common one. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: This is the excepted term in the US. I completed several manual from English to German and what we ended up with was Förderspirale or Förderschnecke.
Try a Google Search on.
auger +"process control"
and you will get many sites using this term
Google: auger +"process control"
