Troughs are some of the most important components in any augur conveyor system
. The trough is the housing section that the materials being moved using the conveyor moves on. In some cases, you will find people referring to the troughs as housing or U-trough.
When looking for a screw conveyor
, it is prudent to think about the materials that you will be moving with it. This is because the conveyed material will be enclosed in it. Most troughs are designed using carbon steel. However, you can also find some troughs made using abrasion resistant steel and galvanized-stainless steel.
The main types of troughs are the u-troughs. These include angle flange, drop bottom, jacketed, and double formed flange. Other types of troughs include the tubular housing model such as the non-split design, or rectangular design like the formed flange.
