Augers and augers can be customized to suit specific applications. In this case, there is no reason not to choose a flying auger that suits your particular situation. But what choice do you have? Read on to learn more about the various types available on the market. After completing the study, please consult your major manufacturer to discuss your personal specifications, requirements and equipment.
- Propeller Flight – This space age propeller flight is a continuous spiral shape. It can be formed by square, rectangular or circular strips. It is usually made of carbon steel or stainless steel. Propeller flight can be used for heavy duty and light duty applications. In order to deliver lightweight, non-abrasive materials such as granules or granules, a lightweight helicoid is sufficient. Heavy abrasive flight is required for abrasives and/or bulk materials such as fertilizers, limestone and cement.
- Segmented flight – also spiral, segmented auger flight is different from spiral flight because they form a spiral blank cut from the slab. So when do you want to use sections and helicoids? Usually size is the determining factor. Segment flight allows for a larger height or flying net. So, in short, segmented flight offers a wider range of sizes. Segmented augers are more expensive, but they are especially suitable for high abrasive applications and extremely heavy duty applications. Glass cullet and alumina are two such examples.
- Ribbon flight – Like a spiral aircraft, the ribbon flight is also formed by a continuous spiral shape. It usually has a narrow network and a large ID. So what is the difference between it and the spiral flight mentioned earlier? Large diameter is one of the things that distinguish this type of flight from other types of flight. Common applications include applications involving the handling of viscous materials or dry materials that require mixing.
- Shaftless flight – Heavier gauges are a differentiator for shaftless auger flight. This type of flight is similar to a ribbon flight because it works well when moving sticky products. It is also easy to move large-sized bumps without a shaft flight. They offer several advantages over other propeller flight types, including no intermediate bearings, no center tube, lower maintenance costs, longer life and greater screw capacity. Construction, mining and water treatment are some of the industries that enjoy the heavy advantages of shaftless augers.
- Complete Screws – By screwing a screw or section to a shaft, tube, flange, hub, column or other means to rotate the screw, a complete screw weld or auger can produce a wide range of variations. They can run the gamut from a simple pipe, the end of which is drilled and drilled onto a long tapered solid shaft with a complex machining drive coupling. Complete screws can be customized to specifications including tapered outer diameter, tapered ID, machined drive end, hard surface, and stitch or solid weld.
