Auger Fed Pump Options - Progressive Cavity Pumps
HD process provide auger feed to a variety of the pumps shown here.
Specifically CSF's 'M' series pumps have a series of options for auger feed. In some cases these are kept off-the-shelf.
Typical set ups include single auger, double auger feed, double auger feed with breaker (or cutter).
- Some of our customers have started off with e.g. double auger feed, but have added a cutter/breaker to the upper section of the feed to keep product flowing into the trough adequately.
- If required this cutter/breaker can be relatively simply re-engineered after delivery – using a (slow) fixed speed geared drive running with a suitable auger device mounted in the upper section of the hopper.
- With all of these types of feeds it is important to consider personal protection for staff (to stop users eg; being able to get their hands into the auger area)
