U-Trough augers will convey any free flowing material where particle size does not exceed 1/3" of the trough diameter.

U-Trough augers are recommended for any horizontal or inclined application up to 15°, but should not have grain or products stacked on them. In flat storage buildings, one run of U-Trough can be mounted in the building's peak for filling the building. One or two runs with guarded intakes can go in the floor to empty the building.

Direct, helical, or chain reduction drives are available with several types of motor mounts.

Guarded inlets and outlets, discharge controls, perforated screen cleaning trough, hinge joints (up to 15°), pulleys and cable are available.

Protected inlets must be used. Guards and covers must be in place during U-Trough operation.

U-Trough is available with three styles of direct drive, four chain reduction drives, and a universal helical gear drive. Augers with intermediate discharges should run at the speeds shown below. Higher RPM may cause the conveyed material to be carried across intermediate discharges. If larger capacities are required, it is better to move up a larger diameter trough.
