Bob Langham from Pilkington“Our facility is a large distribution center for automotive glass. The glass arrives in large wooden crates. Before we purchased the auger, we were loading our empty crates into semi-trailers. We averaged about 50 loads a week.  After having the Auger installed, we reduced our loads to five  40 cu. yd. rolloffs per week.  The machine freed-up dock space, improved cleanliness, and there is very little maintenance. It’s an easy machine to run and is fascinating to watch.” – Bob Langham, Senior Packaging Engineer

Series Technology

series tech specifications

1Patented Solid Lube Bearing Support Systems

Allows for the use of the biggest and most powerful auger screws in the industry, resulting in maximum compaction force.

2Cast Steel Flights 3Tapered Solid Alloy Steel Shaft

Using the highest quality components to construct our auger screws provides extended service life. The density and shape of the cast flights increases strength and durability, as well as more efficient material delivery to the receiving container. The patented tapered shaft uniquely distributes forces, which maximizes bearing and shaft life.

4Cutting Teeth

All of our wood machines include cutting teeth to help with the initial breakdown of dense material.

5Cycloidal Drive with 500% Shock Load

Don’t judge a drive strictly by the motor’s horsepower, especially when you plan to process heavy industrial materials. A high shock load rating is vital in giving the compactor the ability to crunch through large loads.

6Worry-Free Chain and Bearing Lubrication Systems

The engineered, automatically lubricated chain, coupled with the self-lubricating bearing system cuts down on routine maintenance.

7Container Hooks 8Container Adapter

The auger compacts directly into the hauling container. This feature dramatically cuts down on the labor expenses as it eliminates the need for double and triple material handling.
