What are the faults of the auger conveyor?

Sep 23, 2022

The screw conveyor, also known as the auger, is a continuous conveying machine without flexible traction belt prefabricated components (transmission chain, transmission belt, rope, etc.). It relies on the resistance of the rotating screw blades to transport the raw materials along the machine groove. The auger is widely used in the transportation of wheat, rice, soybean, rapeseed and other cereal fuels.

The most basic models of auger are horizontal type, vertical type and skewed screw conveyor in both, the main work content prefabricated components are screw body, machine groove, rolling bearing, driving mechanism and so on. The helix is ​​composed of a helical shaft and a helical blade welded in the shaft. According to the difference in the winding orientation of the helical blade on the drive shaft, the helical blade is divided into two types: left-handed and right-handed.

The characteristics of the auger conveyor for the transportation of fuel, flakes, and meal in the vegetable oil factory are that it is very convenient to assemble, disassemble and repair, and the equipment failure rate is low. At the same time, it is compact in structure and small in size, so it does not occupy a large area and space. In addition, because there will be several discharge ports and discharge ports, it can be flexibly distributed. It also has a reversible conveying trend, so it is possible to convey raw materials to two routes.
