Reinke & Schomann Inc. has been around for more than nine decades, and we have the capabilities and skills to manufacture custom metal products. One of these is stainless steel auger, a type of conveyor material. It can be used in a variety of applications for different industries.
Most of the time, some industries need stainless steel augers with specific applications to meet the needs of a particular industry. We can meet those requirements and work with you from design to end product.
What is a Stainless steel auger?
Stainless steel augers are a type of conveyor screw commonly used in the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries (water treatment equipment). However, it can also be used in different sectors for various applications.
The main advantage of using a stainless steel auger over other conveyor screws is that it is much more resistant to corrosion. Therefore, it’s not susceptible to rust since stainless steel is a metal that has 10% chrome, which makes it resistant to corrosion or contamination.
Additionally, it means that your equipment will last longer, and you won’t have to replace it as often. Additionally, since the screw is made of stainless steel, it is also easier to clean, which is vital in food-processing applications.
How do stainless steel augers work?
A spinning screw drags the material through the conveyor in stainless steel augers. A motor rotates the screw, pulling the material along with it.
The speed at which the screw turns will determine how fast the material moves through the conveyor. Additionally, the size of the screw will evaluate the capacity of the conveyor.
The angle of the screw can also be adjusted to change the direction of the material flow. For example, if you want the material to move horizontally, use a horizontal screw.
Advantages of stainless steel augers
Stainless steel augers are used in many industries for their specific advantages over other conveyor screws. Here are some of them:
- It is much more resistant to corrosion and rust, so your equipment will last longer.
- It is easier to clean since it is made of stainless steel.
- It can handle many different types of materials.
- Does not require paint or coatings to help prevent corrosion.
Common applications of stainless steel augers
Stainless steel augers are commonly used in the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries. However, you can also use them in different sectors for various applications.
Some common applications include:
- Conveying food products such as flour, sugar, spices, and grains
- Conveying pharmaceutical products such as pills, capsules, and tablets
- Conveying small metal parts such as screws, nails, and washers
- Material separation for water treatment plants and screw pumps.
