The auger conveyor from Duperon offers increased site flexibility with the ability to navigate up to 90-degree turns within 90 inches over distances of up to 40 feet. The system accepts screenings from multiple inputs and can move them from hard-to-reach locations at rates up to 18 cubic feet per hour.

“One of the key features of the equipment is its flexibility,” says Beth Bauer, marketing technician. “What we found in a lot of treatment plants is that they had really small spaces, and that provided some constraints when they wanted to do some discharge.” The modular conveyors are site specific and less than five feet long. They can be installed through a standard door opening. The unit’s legs are adjustable from 26 to 48 inches.

The system’s 8-inch-diameter auger is constructed of abrasion- and wear-resistant ultrahigh modular weight (UHMW) plastic that is flexible to prevent jamming and bridging. It can convey grit and debris up to 5.5 inches in diameter, around corners and into an otherwise inaccessible roll-off container, eliminating traditional and maintenance-heavy transport methods such as barrels, buckets and tubs.

“Depending on the configuration of the plant, the unit can accept multiple screens,” says Bauer. “So instead of having to buy two or three separate pieces of equipment, you can have one fluid system.”

The 220-volt system (188 watts) powers a 1/4 hp motor that is sealed for long life. The integral motor and gearbox require little maintenance, although a quarterly inspection is recommended to ensure nothing has passed through that might have bent a component. “Our main goal for the operator is to try to reduce maintenance time and worry about small things in the plant,” says Bauer. “It’s all about making life easier.” 800/383-8479;
