Auger Wear and Tear
#1
Can you tell me how to measure Auger Wear and tear and how this affects the abrasive flow back to the storage hopper?

The flighting on the auger looses diameter as it wears and at times gets razor sharp on the edges in excessive cases. If the auger is not conveying the abrasive back to the main storage hopper the system becomes "starved" for abrasive and the wheel doesn't have enough abrasive to propel causing cleaning and cycle time issues.
