For all Fliegl spreading systems that spread at ground level

For more than 20 years, Fliegl has been the only manufacturer to rely on its own patented screw distributor. Increasingly stringent specifications by the fertiliser regulations require an increase in nutrient efficiency during slurry spreading - the Fliegl screw distributor scores points here - the best results in the transverse and longitudinal distribution show that the plant stock is evenly and precisely supplied with the slurry nutrients. The functional principle has proven itself 1000 times. We can prove this with our many years of practical experience.

  • Unbeatable against foreign bodies

  • No blocking up

  • Uniform longitudinal and cross spreading – even on slopes

  • Simple construction

  • Durable and wear-resistant

  • Low power requirement (oil capacity up to 20 litres)

Function of the screw distributor

The slurry is fed through a supply hose in the manifold and from there into the screw distributor box. An oil engine with a required power of about 15-20 litres/minute drives the screw (50-60 rpm). The function of the screw is not to distribute slurry, but to carry any foreign objects outwards into the storage box. To ensure that the outlet holes are constantly cleaned, the worm momentarily changes its direction of rotation. 

A standard built-in time relay ensures the direction change, with the screw turning about 40 seconds to the outside (towards the storage box) and 5 seconds inwards. The storage box must be emptied depending on the amount of foreign matter. The wear of the screw or the screw pan is very low, since the slurry serves as a lubricant.

An important goal during slurry spreading is to bring the current slurry flow rate in line with the current travel speed in such a way that the desired application rate for the respective area / sub-area can be maintained. These tables should serve as a basic guide.
