Archimedys™: Innovative Solution for Agricultural Machinery

Archimedys™: Innovative Solution for Agricultural Machinery
6 Mar 2020  |
PARIS - The Archimedys™ modular auger has been chosen by the leader in cereals distribution and storage in Spain. Archimedys™ was the perfect solution to renovate their corn conveyor.

It eliminates all issues associated with a traditional steel auger use: flow and maintenance problems, blockages and production damages because of intermediate bearings uses, … The corn kernels were pinched by the intermediate bearings between flights and the tube.

Before Archimedys™ installation, the emptying station for trucks charged with corn consisted of a large hopper how receive the harvest. At this hopper bottom, a steel auger was installed to return the corn to the various storage silos. The auger had a 304mm diameter and was 8 meter long.

Eight meters long without intermediate bearings

The Archimedys™ modular system allowed maintenance staff to produce the replacement auger without any welding. The auger is assembled by simply stacking standard modules along an axle. The original motorization and bearings can be reused. The modification was done at a lower cost. The auger profile was easily adjusted, by placing short-pitch modules at the conveyor entrance.

Preserving crops and improving yield

Modules special geometry ensures a scraping effect along the conveyor tube walls. The product transported in this way is no longer pinched between the auger and the trough, causing the crop to be crushed and degraded. Archimedys™ avoids, during sowing for example, the destruction of a significant quantity of seeds during handling. The performance has been improved by almost 50%.

The Archimedys™ auger is ideal for the conveyor renovation or the agricultural machinery construction.

These new technology advantages are quick handling by maintenance personnel, quick installation and existing components recovery. With a simple and compact design, the Archimedys™ auger is lighter than a steel auger. This greatly facilitates its installation. The auger is simply constructed, without any welding, by assembling the standard modules directly on site. If an accident occurs: damaged modules are replaced and then put back on the axles without having to replace the whole auger. \

The techno-polymer used in its manufacture has a high corrosion resistance. Its abrasion resistance is often three times higher than that of steel.

Easy maintenance

The Archimedys™ advantages for maintenance are innumerable. Only the damaged modules are replaced and put back on the axle, not the whole auger. Maintenance operations are very simple and quick. Maintenance costs and times are reduced, as are operating losses due to downtime.

Archimedys™, technological revolution

The Archimedys™ modular auger has so much advantages that more industrialists decide to switch from steel to Archimedys™.
