Construction Details
• Grade 304 stainless steel construction in product and nonproduct contact areas
• 9” OD auger
o 3” Pitch flighting, 3/8″ thick
o Reversed pitch flighting on discharge end
o Oversized shaft pipe
o Journals thru-bored to allow cooling fluid flow through shaft (14.9 psig max, non-ASME coded)
• U-trough housing
o 16 Feet long inside dimension
o Welded endplate at inlet end
o Bolted (removable) endplate at discharge end
Finish Details
• Product contact surface finish, mill finish
• Exterior stainless surface finish, mill finish
• Continuous weld on both sides of flighting
• Product contact welds and jacket welds are continuous and wire brush cleaned to remove slag and discoloration
• Exterior, non-jacket welds are intermittent, wire brush cleaned
• All steel components to be painted with one primer coat and one top coat (S. Howes blue)
Standard Design Features
