The objective of the present work is to prove the stability and strength of screw feeding mechanism made for outlet of pulping material screw conveyor. A screw reactor is a continuous reactor where the feed is transported and mixed by a screw (augur). The operating conditions have an influence on the process. In overall, work modeling comes into place, because it is faster and cheaper than experimenting. This work gives a list of possible modeling techniques, whether or not validated by experiments those are used for the different applications of the screw reactor.
Work is done on sheet metal validation with welding and its methodology with proven material selection also bringing manufacturability of the same product.
New product development shaped into conical screw feeding reactor with its shaft and flights design. Radial force effect on flight surface in spiral rotation is analysed and performed structural sustaining engineering work on it with validation results.
