Products like sugar, salt, sand, rice and popcorn are examples. The auger tooling that is used with free flowing products will consist of a straight auger design, a spinner plate to stop the material flow, a straight funnel and some type of collector.
Non-Free Flow / Self Feeding Augers: Non-Free Flow augers are typically used to feed a dry product that is sticky and will not flow on its on. Products like cake mix, pancake mix, non-dairy creamer, grated cheese and soup base are examples. The auger tooling that is used with non-free flowing products will normally consist of a self feeding auger design and a lip funnel.
Special Auger Designs: While there is an enormous quantity of standard augers available, the results of your filling machine operation depend entirely on the proper auger design for your product.
