Ash conveyors are devices that assist in the transfer of ash from one system to another. A gigantic screw inside a tube is used in the most frequent of these conveyors. The tube has one end that is inside the ash that needs to be moved. The material is pulled up from the pile and trapped between the teeth of the screw as it rotates.
