Our Methods of Auger Design
Using the latest 3D CAD (computer-aided design) technology, Trantec Augers can be developed and produced quickly and efficiently.
- Quality, reliability, and repeatability are all maximised.
- Reduced costs
- Reduced Delivery times
Augers UK has been designing Augers for nearly two decades and has a wealth of experience when developing bulk solids solutions. Our customer-base boasts some of the largest multinational corporations worldwide as our end-users. We are confident that our experience can assist with your application.
From one-off designs to a series in different diameters, Augers UK can design and manufacture your augers from the initial concept to the fully finished product. Variations in flights can be produced, such as twin or triple starts, with relative ease using our programmed machine tool approach. Such methods can be very cost-effective and cannot be matched using traditional fabrication techniques.
Trantec has manufactured Metering Screw Feeders, Powder Samplers, and Flexible Screw Conveyors for a variety of process manufacturers and OEMs (original equipment manufacturer) since 1997. Through our experience, we have learnt which augers perform best with different bulk solids.
The relationship between rotational speed, the diameter of flights, flight pitch, and the central core size can be critical. Flow rates can be calculated, but these calculations tend to give only approximations and can’t consider changes in product characteristics. Experience in using augers to move powders, flakes or granules is essential. Trantec has that experience.
