KWS Manufacturing Company is the leader in the design and manufacture of
conveying equipment for the bulk material handling industry.
Aggregate:Used occasionally for handling small capacities of aggregates or
sand. Also used for the air pollution control systems for handling dust.
Brewing:Used for grain and hops conveying and storage.
Cement:Used for handling Portland cement and cement clinker. Also used for
the air pollution control systems for handling dust.

conveyors are ideal since they enclose the material and prevent contamination.
Feed and Grain :Used for truck or rail car dump systems and for elevating
material to top of storage bins.
Food:Used for all types of food handling. Ideal for screws because they can
be fully enclosed and manufactured to meet FDA and USDA standards.
