How to increase kg per hr capacity of screw press to achieve the same applied pressure per unit volume of raw material?

The current capacity of screw press is only 100 kg/hr. Motor is 22kw, shaft RPM is 16, applied torque is 13,120 Nm, theoretical volume is 0.000967 cu m.

1. Am I correct to say the press is going = 13,120 Nm divided by 0.000967 cu m will get the pressure Nm/cu m?
2. If it is ok how can I increase the capacity to meet the same applied pressure equal to above answer?

Regards,

Romy

• Increase either the volume delivered per turn at the same speed or increase the rpm for the same volume per turn. – Solar Mike Jan 12 at 7:27

$$F_{screw}= T/(r*tan (\alpha)) \quad$$ r is screw radius , a is pitch angle.
