Pharmaceutical Augers

Pharmaceutical Augers

Pharmaceutical Augers have to be produced with careful precision and accuracy so they meet the requirements and have a polished finish.

Sometimes there are cases where fabricated augers can suffer from defects; this is why we manufacturer pharmaceutical augers in stainless steel with helicoid flights welded onto a central core.

Sometimes fabricated augers can suffer from several of the following problems.

  • Accuracy of the flights is dependent on the ‘eye’ of the fabricator/welder
  • Variations in flight, pitch and diameter affect the performance of the auger
  • Uneven flow patterns are produced which can affect accuracy – this is why Trantec augers are produced using computer controlled machine tooling boasting accuracies exceeding 0.01mm in diameter and pitch.
  • Sensitisation and Corrosion of the material 

Trantec’s Solution to these problems

Trantec manufacturered augers do not suffer from these problems, as not only do our augers not require any welding but there is very little, if any, straightening required for post production.

Top Quality Finishes

Mechanical polishing is often time-consuming and involves removing metal progressively using a series of finer abrasives. The poorer the starting surface finish, the longer and more laborious the process. Fabricated augers can take many hours to hone into a fine “mirror” finish due to the poor starting condition.
