The company says the combination of a horizontal and vertical auger saves space since a long diagonal conveyor belt system is no longer needed.

STF Group, Booth #S19181, presents the next generation of its polygonal vertical and horizontal auger combination. New features for the horizontal auger reportedly include an easy-to-exchange liner of “Robalon S” hard plastic with a high wear protection; larger auger diameter of 515 mm; external solid rubber coupling for better access and maintenance and a stronger motor output of 3.0 kW.

The vertical auger’s new features include a wider side guiding rails, adjustable from outside of the housing; large doors for maintenance and inspection openings; complete lining of the lower section of the inside of the housing with “vautid” hardened metal for a high wear protection; larger auger diameter of 600 mm; auger pitch of 400 mm; and a stronger motor output of 7.5 kW.

The updates allow a bigger throughput—6-7 tons/hr. In addition, the combination of a horizontal and vertical auger saves space since a long diagonal conveyor belt system is no longer needed, according to the company. STF screw conveyors are ideal for transporting bottles as well as dry and wet plastic flakes.
