Standard STS STINGER® Augers
When feeding hard-to-handle additives like pigments and other cohesive powders, having consistent flow rate at the discharge is crucial to maintaining batch and rate accuracy.
Model STS STINGER® feeder tube uses an auger to regulate materials. The feed rate is limited to the capacity of the screw.
Shown below are the standard augers for use in our Model STS STINGER®. The auger selected should be based on the physical characteristics of the materials handled in the feeder.
We can provide augers for special applications not listed below. For questions regarding the best auger to use for you application, contact us at 1 800-546-3165 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Standard STS STINGER LIW Feeder Augers
The basic auger for the Model STS STINGER feeder is the screw auger.
This auger is used for difficult-to-handle powders that do not tend to build up on the screw or shaft.
Furnished in C/S and 304 S/S, Optional polishes are available to reduce build up.
An optional auger for the Model STS STINGER feeder is the High-Density Polyethylene flights on a rigid 304 S/S Shaft.
This auger resists corrosion, safe for food handling, and can be used for high-wear applications.
It is made with replaceable High-Density Polyethylene flights
An additional optional auger for the Model STS STINGER feeder is the Patented Trans-Flow auger
This auger is used for cohesive powders that form clumps and can build up in the auger pockets. It uses Trans-Flow Technology on the shaft to condition cohesive powder for better flow control and weighing accuracy.
