what is used to auger grain
Auger – the core, which is surrounded by a continuous helical surface. Currently, the auger is used as part of the mechanism designed to transport powdery, pulverized and granular materials up to the particle sizes, enabling their free movement along the axis. These devices have found application in construction, chemical, grinding industries, and in agriculture. One of the most important features of the use of equipment of this type is the ease of maintenance and basic construction of the device, allowing to carry out repair and maintenance work without the involvement of highly skilled and consequently expensive specialists.
If you want to install equipment in a limited area, in this case, as can be by screws. They are characterized by small dimensions and provide the ability to produce intermediate unloading in any place located between the beginning and the end of the auger. Screw conveyor varies according to the following criteria:
- screw type;
- screw diameter and step size;
- spiral direction;
- for vertical, inclined or horizontal channel having a cross-sectional circular or semicircular shape.
In turn, it is possible to buy the auger for loading grain and halfhorizontal steeply inclined chute – their designs also vary. These devices, as well as products with horizontal screws are successfully used for transportation for short distances, of grain, seed and flour. Their performance depends on the angle of inclination of the gutter – the steeper the slope, the more energy is spent on moving the bulk material and the lower the efficiency of the equipment.
How to choose a suitable for the characteristics of the screw conveyor
in addition, the angle of inclination of the screw is of great importance to the screw diameter and the size of the gutters, as these parameters in most of the cases, determine the performance of the entire complex. So, if the machine is equipped with a motor of appropriate power, the conveyor with a screw diameter of 30 centimeters is able in one hour to arrange transport around 100 tons of grain.
Everyone knows that the Achilles heel of the screw conveyors is increased chance of damage and even destruction of the transported product. While the technology of the responsible device node to use seamless spiral, the risk can be reduced to almost zero. Moreover, when providing transportation of flour does not care how much more it will ground in the process of moving.
a Significant advantage of augers for grain is the ability to use motor instead of any other drive. For example, it can be the engine of the tractor or trucks, connected to the machine via the PTO shaft. In this case it is possible to save on the laying of the electric networks and even use the conveyor belt without training in the field, using a movable screw conveyor. You can buy products that allows for the transportation of grain only horizontally or obliquely, but in the case of a mobile installation it is better to provide the possibility of using the screw at different angles of inclination.
If you have a precise idea of what the performance of the pipeline will be optimal for the task, it is enough to choose an appropriate model – its price will give the option to direct savings to other important things. Otherwise it is better to buy a device with enough reserve power because in the future this may prevent increased wear or even breakage of the unit.
Screw conveyor from manufacturer
When searching for a suitable equipment it is worth remembering that the mobile conveyor screw it is advisable to purchase from the manufacturer, as only in this case, a guaranteed full service maintenance and emergency repairs, if suddenly it is required. When choosing equipment, issued by the manufacturer with a good reputation, you avoid the risk of spending money for nothing and possibly suffer serious loss, or at least, additional losses from lost profits.
the success of the crop largely depends on the technological level, the company manufactures screw conveyors. Augers, made with a view to modern requirements, ensure high reliability and long service life under specified in the technical documentation of the parameters. In the online store of our company includes almost the entire line of conveyors that may be needed by the landowner. We supply our products to all corners of Ukraine, including the Dnieper, Kharkov and Kiev.
