Archimedys™ equips the whirlpool of a butterfly breeder
It’s in an enchanting setting that our modular auger, Archimedys™ has found its place. Indeed, one of our customers, butterfly breeder, has equipped a whirlpool with a Archimedys™ auger allowing marble balls to move and create eddies.
The problems associated with a steel auger are fading away
A traditional steel auger would have presented too many disadvantages in such a place. Noisy in service, unsightly, it causes corrosion problems inherent to this type of material.
The Archimedys™ auger adapts perfectly to the situation. The polymer, used in its manufacture, attenuates the noise in operation of the auger. Visitors are not disturbed by its operation.
In addition, this polymer has high corrosion resistance. Its abrasion resistance is often three times higher than that of steel. Even when continuously immersed in a tank, the auger is more resistant to corrosion than a conventional steel auger.
Moreover, with its simple and compact design, the Archimedys™ auger is lighter than a steel auger. This makes it much easier to install. The auger is simply constructed, without any welding, by assembling the standard modules directly on site.
Relatively improved maintenance
On the maintenance side, the advantages are also considerable! Indeed, only the damaged modules are replaced and put back on the axle in case of wear, and not the whole auger. Maintenance operations are therefore very simple and quick. Maintenance costs and times are considerably reduced.
Archimedys™, technological revolution
The advantages of the modular auger Archimedys™ are such that more manufacturers decide to adopt it! Many industries use the auger technology for their bulk material conveyors. It is therefore truly a technological revolution that we are witnessing in the conveyor sector.
