Client’s Question: Do you have 5.5 m transfer auger?
Comments and questions from GN Solids Control: Why you ask for 5.5m auger? Do you mean transfer length is 5.5m? GN Solids Control standard screw conveyor is combined with standard sections with 12ft in length. Job site operators can remove a mid. Section to shorten the transfer length, or add a mid. Section to extend the transfer length. For standard auger models, the available length is 12ft, 24ft, 36ft and 48ft. And the auger dia. varies from 10 inch to 18 inch.
Client’s reply and comments: I want 5.5 m auger. In this case, I can put the auger into 20ft container. By the way, I will need a 20ft containerized dewatering unit. Can I put the 5.5m auger into the 20ft dewatering unit container?
