Because of differential rotation of the male and female rotors, of which the rotation speed of male screw is four times higher than that of female rotor, it leads to the conveying function of male screw is obviously stronger than that of female rotor.
08 s, it can be seen that the differential rotation of the male and female rotors, of which the rotation speed of male rotor is four times the size of that of female rotor, lead to the conveying function of male screw is obviously stronger than that of female rotor.
