The AGI Sweep Auger has been designed for the final release of grain stored in the silo. It is composed of several different modules:
- a release spout – which houses the motor reducer and is the point at which the product is released;
- the body – which is constructed from “V” shaped sheets.
There are two drive types:
- Manual drive, where the thread is part of the internal Helicoidal turning action, directs the grains to the center of the silo, where they are manually pushed in a circular fashion;
- and automated drive (optional), which allows for a traditional circular thread movement.
It uses self‐lubricating plugs and protected bearings that offer added security. It has a modular design and can be installed in a silo of any size.
