Sweep Auger

PETKUS Sweep Augers are used for emptying flat-bottomed round silos. Granular and free-flowing bulky products such as grain, pulses, oilseeds, and similar agricultural products can be conveyed with them. The outlet hopper with the drive unit is mounted over the main outlet in the silo bottom. During the emptying process the sweep auger moves in a circular motion above the silo bottom removing the material cone and transporting the product to the main outlet in the center of the silo. This way, problems such as back logging and stoppage can be avoided.
