All good things start from scratch. Around the country, many successful business enterprises have begun from very small beginnings. So it has been for the design and manufacture of the auger and its accompanying utility auger.
A small business starts from the garage in any suburban or residential setting. It also begins in far and out of reach rural outskirts, far, far from the city limits. And then the business grows, so much so that it has no alternative but to relocate. It moves into the dedicated industrial node with similar sized businesses, also growing, as its neighbors.
A company handling the manufacture of augers and its necessary repair and maintenance work had its beginnings appropriately from a farm shed many years ago. Appropriate in the sense that the auger is being utilized for grain handling work. Today, the augur has many other uses, among which the handling of the following materials; pea coal, plastic pellets and sawdust.
To reiterate, augurs are used for grain handling, and in feed grinders and combines.
The augur’s use can be expanded to so many industrial sectors because it is possible to custom design and manufacture it.
Currently, and in one case, there are over four hundred different pre-prepared augur sizes available for purchase and distribution. And for example, utility augurs vary in size and length, ranging from four inches to ten inches, and twelve feet to twenty feet, respectively. Over the years, a number of brands and trademarks have been developed, Jet Flow being one such example. It is a bulk tank. Alongside the supply of augurs come head kits, discharge spouts, flex tubes and a whole range of further augur accessories.
So, there you have it, from small beginnings to heavy scale industries, the augur and its many uses.
