Non-Free-Flow (Self Feeding) Augers

SELF-FEEDING AUGERS

Self-Feeding 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 blade, a high speed (Type D) agitator blade, and a Lip Funnel. 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 the product back, we would add different restrictors. Examples would be, drip washers, grid restrictors, monofilament nozzles, or cut off assemblies. Order new and replacement Self-Feeding Augers used with ALL-FILL, AMS, Mateer-Burt, and Spee-Dee auger filling machines.
