It consists of a container within which a continuous screw, extending the length of the container, forms a coiled chamber. By introducing the lower end in water and rotating the screw, water is raised to the crest. The theory is applied in machinery used for drainage and irrigation, and also in some types of high-speed tools. It can also be functional for handling light, loose materials such as grain, sand, and ashes.
