U-Trough & Tube-Type Solid-Core Augers
U-trough & tube-type solid-core augers efficiently convey material up inclines to 60°, or horizontally over long distances. Sanitary U-trough designs are ideal for applications where cleanability is a priority.
Any material handling system depends on its ability to convey materials from storage areas to work areas throughout your operation, automatically, economically and reliably. Whether conveying dry bulk materials into overhead storage bins or moving it from mixing and storage areas to processing points throughout the plant, NBE offers the components required to do the job quickly, quietly and dust free.
Flexible and Solid Core auger conveyors are designed to convey most any dry free flowing materials; powders, granules, blends, crystals, flakes and more. These auger systems require low maintenance, are easily installed, and completely enclosed to guard against costly material spillage and contamination.
From standard material conveying needs to fully automated, complex material distribution systems call the experts at NBE. Our years of experience in design and installation of auger conveying systems mean that we can provide the most efficient and productive system possible. Taking into account particular material characteristics and production applications. We offer both standard and custom designed systems that will meet your specific auger conveying needs.
Flexible augers move material from storage areas to processing points throughout the plant, with the flexibility to go over and around existing equipment or obstructions.
NBE offers an unbeatable combination: increased production and lower costs
NBE's Helicon conveyors are perfect for your free-flowing bulk materials handling needs. These light-duty conveyors are low-cost and high capacity. And they're engineered to last.
Our helical screw conveyors make the transfer of materials from a storage area to a workstation faster, easier and safer than ever before.
Convenience and Reliability...
Helicon conveyors offer economical, automatic conveying of powders, crystals, flakes, granules and blends from station to station. Speed the transfer of plastics, food ingredients, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and chemicals to blending equipment or temporary storage bins.
Quickly and easily transfer the contents of boxes, bags and drums from storage areas to overhead hoppers or other processing points throughout the plant.
One NBE Helicon system can be set up to feed multiple bins and machine hoppers. And because the auger is completely enclosed, the transfer is a quiet, dust-free operation.
Not only are NBE's helical screw conveyors easy to operate and efficient, they do the hard labor so your employees don't have to. These conveyors literally take the backache out of handling bulk materials. Production employees work safer, faster, and more efficiently Ease of Operation... NBE's Helicons are easy to install and set up. Simply position the intake hopper and discharge head wherever they're needed, then let the helical screw conveyor do all of the work.
Helicon and Cobra" auger conveyors can go over and around equipment, and they can be designed to go through immovable obstacles like walls and floors.
Move material vertically or laterally. Set up a 40 ft vertical flow or an 80 ft horizontal flow in just minutes. Or set up a relay of conveyors and move materials even greater distances-like from room to room, building to building or even outdoor to indoor.
The Helicon's only moving part is its completely enclosed auger, which is driven by a standard electric motor. The auger is fully enclosed to prevent costly product contamination and loss due to spills and splashes, while providing a quiet, dust-free operation.
NBE can engineer and build a custom, fully automated complex distribution system or help you set up a standard materials conveying system to meet your needs. We can also modify a system to fit your operation.
For over a generation we have been engineering and building processing equipment to meet the demands of everyday inline performance. So we know the rigors our equipment has to go through. That's why all of our products are built to last.
NBE offers four types of augers-Helicon, solid core, U-trough and Cobra. These augers can be enclosed in materials suitable to any material or industry.
Drive head boxes are offered in stainless steel or economical polyethylene. These food grade boxes resist material accumulation and backup.
NBE offers a conveying component or complete system that will meet your needs. And your budget.
Where You Want It...
NBE offers stationary conveyors as well as portable units. All models offer an optional boom to secure the drive box and discharge head.
Stationary models allow you to bring the work to the conveyor, but portable models let you bring the conveyor to the work. Portable models have either lift-truck channels or caster-mounted frames for easy positioning and handling.
Easy Changeover ... Easy Cleanup...
Changeover from one material to another in just minutes. It's just this simple: reverse the auger rotation, remove the bottom end cap, and flush the casing. You're done. In minutes.
All conveyor assemblies are impervious to most industrial cleaning agents.
Fit to Your Needs...
From a single component to a complete turnkey operation, NBE has a Helicon to meet your needs.
