Auger Tube & Flighting for Horizontal TMR Mixers
The day will come when your horizontal mixer auger flighting will need to be replaced. The tube or pipe that supports the auger flighting is also important. You can look at the flighting and determine if it is adequate or not. The auger tube is more difficult to verify if flighting needs replacement. It may be necessary to drill a small hole in a high wear area such as the discharge area to receive an accurate measurement of wall thickness. A tube wall measurement on a small wagon, the bottom auger, should be not less than 1/4”. On a larger wagon 5/16” or more is best. Note: if the auger tube is adequate thickness, you should plug weld the hole shut. Never re-flight a mixer auger without first checking pipe wall depth.
If a mixer auger or flighting needs to be replaced, a good manager will shop around using the Internet and other sources for the best deal. The thickness of auger flighting is important and make sure you ask the supplier what the auger wall depth is. At Post Equipment Corp we will give you the information you need.
