A screw in the horizontal is a conveyor or feeder, but as a screw is inclined it very quickly becomes a lift or pump. All of the charts & formulas for calculating speed and capacity for a screw, in the horizontal are no longer applicable, what now comes into play is product knowledge and experience for sizing and calculating speed and horse power for incline and vertical screws.
