Free Flow Augers
Straight augers (13-1/8” OAL) are typically used for free-flowing powders such as granulated sugar, salt, bread crumbs, etc. They are commonly used with a slow speed or flake blade agitator, a straight funnel (5-9/16” OAL), and collector funnel and spinner plate. All parts are made in-house and designed to meet the delivery of the size auger and funnel combination. The purpose of this design is to allow the auger to meter product efficiently onto the spinner plate. Without the spinner plate, free flowing products will pass through the auger and funnel. The spinner plate stops product and with proper spacing between the end of the funnel and spinner plate, product is dispensed accurately into a collector funnel or dust shroud. The collector funnel nozzle is then sized to the opening of the customer’s container or bag.
Non Free Flow Augers
Self-feeding augers (13-1/8” OAL or 20-1/8” OAL or VFF&S augers) are used for non-free flowing powders such as bakery mixes, carbon, talcum powder, etc. They are commonly used with a slow speed agitator, a high speed “D” agitator blade and a lip funnel (5-9/16” OAL or 12-9/16” OAL or longer for VFF&S applications). This type of auger is engineered differently than a straight auger. The top portion of the auger has over-flight. Over-flight is designed to grab and compact product evenly down through the straight section of the auger, dispensing product accurately. Lip funnels provide additional back pressure so that product does not drip from the auger. If a drip occurs because there isn’t enough back pressure to hold product back, we would add different restrictors. Examples would be, drip washers, grid restrictors, monofilament nozzles, or cut off assemblies.
