Auger Cart Provides Production Efficiencies for Pet Food Manufacturer

auger cart

Mepaco’s augers and pumping systems eliminate the need for batching
by automating product transfers between production

The cart highlighted in the photo was customized for a specific bone-in chicken
processing application. Due to a stringent plant floor layout, the cart was modified to
cover the gear boxes during the product dumping cycle from an existing dumper on the

Auger Screw

Further, the auger screw was designed with custom flights. These flights are
engineered to forcefully push product through the pressure tube. The pumping operation is
sized for a flow rate of 200 lbs./minute.
