Screw Conveyors

Astro is a top notch metal fabricator specializing in screw conveyors, replacement augers, and augers for OEM’s. We are one of the top manufacturers for the food processing and biofuels industries. For over 10 years we’ve been providing design-build services for our customers. Our extensive experience in designing systems has resulted in gained efficiency and cost savings in both new systems and following existing prints.

Fitting standardized systems into specialized or existing plant equipment is difficult at best. And buying new plant customized equipment is expensive; we get that. Many of our customers find that by investing in a custom designed system, they get the added efficiency during operation they want. Material, density, desired volume, speed, distance, abrasiveness, corrosiveness, and viscosity are all factors taken into account. On top of that, features of mobility, heating, cooling, mixing, metering, and fitting to existing equipment are considered. See our printable PDF for our Thermoveyor. We manufacture industrial equipment for various companies in the food, chemical, and biofuel industries. At Astro we have the skills and the capabilities to custom build the perfect apparatus for your company.
