Auger heaters prevent freezing using a custom designed HTR™ system from Thermo-Tech. In some cases, it is also possible to dry the materials they convey as shown in this slow-moving grit discharge installation.
Tube Type Auger Heater
This system clamps over the tube the auger runs in.
Heating augers to prevent freezing requires about 75 Watts per square foot. In application when drying the material, it may require up to 400 watts per square foot.
A temperature control system is required when drying the material conveyed by the auger.
Auger Feed Hopper/Chute Heater
Heating the hopper or chute that feeds the auger is required in most instances.
