Bulk Solids Handling & Processing Innovations
Owning a waste
recovery unit, they have developed biogas production systems. Biogas is the
result of the fermentation of organic waste and then, is recovered to produce
heat, electricity and vehicle fuel.
The management of
organic waste is currently a growing challenge for all companies in all sectors
of activity. Companies in the food industry produce a large amount of organic
waste, which needs to be treated. Traditional methods to remove waste by
external companies for treatment have shown their limitations, both financially
and environmentally. This is why the idea of treating this waste at the place
where it is produced to transform it into a free source of energy has gradually
A traditional steel
auger has too many disadvantages in this context. Wear problems appear as a
result of corrosion, abrasiveness of the material and its tendency to compact
under loads. Maintenance is made very difficult because it’s impossible to
repair the steel by welding. When the auger is damaged. it’s also not so easy
to repair or replace worn areas.
Therefore, Archimedys™ adapts perfectly to the situation. Installed at the bottom of the hopper, it has many advantages. With its simple and compact design, the Archimedys™ auger has a lighter weight than a conventional steel auger. The result: simplified installation and quiet operation!
In addition, the special geometry of the Archimedys™ modules allows operation without intermediate bearings.
to its modularity, in case of wear, only the worn module needs to be replaced
and not the entire auger! Maintenance costs are considerably reduced without
welding or operating losses due to prolonged system downtime.
Finally, it should
be noted that the material used for Archimedys™ has a high corrosion
resistance. It can therefore be used in abrasive environments.
The modular auger
Archimedys™ is a real technological revolution. It was awarded the “Prix de l’Innovation
industrielle” in 2011.
advantages of the Archimedys™ modular auger are so many that more and more
industrialists decide to adopt it! Many industries use auger technology for
their bulk material conveyors. It’s therefore truly a technological revolution
that we are witnessing in the conveyor sector!
We carry out the
study and the realization of the mechanical parts necessary for the
installation or the adaptation of an Archimedys™ auger on your installations.
