CAC-Augers & Screw Conveyors

Trough Auger


A screw conveyor or auger conveyor is a mechanism that uses a rotating helical screw blade, called a "flighting", within a tube, to move granular materials. They are used in many bulk handling industries. Screw conveyors in modern industry are often used horizontally or at an incline of up to 90 degrees as an efficient way to move materials, including food waste, wood chips, aggregates, cereal grains, animal feed, boiler ash, meat and bone meal, flour, meal and many others. The first type of screw conveyor was the Archimedian screw, used since ancient times to pump irrigation water.

Two variants of the auger are produced by ABCHansen Africa, the trough auger and the normal auger.

Trough augers are usually used when conveying material over longer distances, on a horizontal level, while normal augers are more applicable for shorter distances with inclines up to 90° inclines.

It can be said without a doubt that ABC Hansen manufactures the best augers in South Africa at this moment.

The engineers at ABC Hansen worked designed, refined and improved on the normal auger. The current design allows multiple configurations on a single auger. If you need a 45-degree incline auger the auger can be positioned at the desired angle and the appropriate outlet is bolted on. If you would like to use the auger for another application at a different incline, say 90 degrees, al you would need to do is buy the 90-degree auger outlet and fit it with a few nuts and bolts where the previous outlet was. The auger is designed this way to allow you to use your auger for a variety of applications over the course of many years. Our augers are made of thicker material than our competitor's to ensure your auger last longer than you would expect.

Our augers come in a variety of different materials and coating.

For a highly corrosive material to be transported a stainless steel auger is built. This would include transporting ice, salt, and chemical rich substances.

If you work in an area of high humidity, some parts of the auger can be galvanized to ensure minimal rust.

We can build an auger to your unique needs or a plain normal auger at a competitive price.
