Drives® Helicoid Augers are often used in screw conveyors for moving bulk materials, but you may be wondering…How is a helicoid auger made? Flighting is cold rolled into a continuous one-piece helicoid screw. Its smooth, hard surface has a tapered cross-section across the conveying face, weighs lighter than sectional augers and lacks transition seams. Helicoid augers can be mounted to a tube or pipe, if needed. Although carbon is the default material, this product is also available in stainless steel material for enhanced corrosion resistance.
