Helicoid flighting is tapered from the center to the outer edge.
The thickness is measured at the inner edge of the flight.
Our SUPER-EDGE™ Flight is a continuous flight rolled with a thicker outer edge where most of the wear occurs.
This gives you longer life without adding any weight to your unit.
Long pitch flights are used to speed up the flow of material. The pitch change is generally at least 20% different from the outside diameter.
Short pitch flights are used to slow the material flow, generally used when feeding another auger. Also used to prevent an auger from plugging up that has a larger than normal intake.
