Steel Screw Conveyor Segments & Flights Manufactured in Scotland

Segments & Flights Supplied to Your Specification

G&H Engineering supply a wide range of screw conveyor segments and flights for numerous configurations and dimensions. They are called blades, screws, augers, spirals, ribbons, worms or helicoid flights. We can supply segments & standard flights from our stock or specials wound to your requirements. 

We also produce all of the above as mounted assemblies to your drawings or specifications, We bore tubes, fit bushes and weld the flights or segments to the tube or shaft. We machine drive shafts with keyways and tail shafts and fit them to the complete auger assembly.

Segments & flights are produced in mild steel, stainless steel and hardened steel to suit more arduous and abrasive applications.

Various types of segments & flights in a vast range of sizes and profiles are available to suit most applications including:

  • Segmented flights in various thicknesses
  • Ribbon flighting for handling sticky materials
  • Paddle flights for mixing applications
  • Variable pitch flighting for bin dischargers
  • Continuously rolled flighting in full or half pitch

Standard & Optional Screw Flight Profiles

Single Standard Pitch

Flights are considered to be standard and are used for the general conveying of most materials. The O.D. dimension is the same as the pitch.

Single Short Pitch

Flights are frequently employed as feeders and are recommended for inclined conveyors in excess of 20 degress. The pitch may be two thirds of the diameter (illustrated) or commonly half the diameter.

Double Standard Pitch

Flights are frequently required for smooth conveying and discharge of certain materials.

Double Short Pitch

Flights provide an even and regular flow of materials with fluid characteristics.

Single Long Pitch

Flights provide a means for the agitation of liquids or the very rapid conveying of very free flowing materials.

Single Standard Pitch Tapered

Flights are employed for feeding lumpy material from storage. Withdrawal is uniform over full length of feed opening.

Single Standard Pitch Ribbon

Flights are required for viscous, gummy or sticky materials which adhere to flighting and pipe. Ribbons are also commonly used for mixing machines.

Single Flight Segments

Needed when extra thick sections or very large diameters are used. As above they can be varying in pitch or in ribbon profile. Paddles, fingers and chopping blades can all be added to auger assemblies if required

Helicoid Ribbon Flights

Flights are supplied left or right hand as required. Ribbon flights are mounted on tubes or solid centre shafts to your requirements. Welded struts are normally manufactured from the same strip material as the flights but can also be manufactured from round bar. Special ribbon flights and assemblies can be produced and assembled to meet your requirements and drawings.









Standard Industrial Flights

Standard flights can be mounted on tubes with internal pipe bush, and drilled to take coupling, drive and tail shafts. Longer or shorter lengths can also be supplied. Sizes are standard but we can quote for a wide variety of different strip widths mounted on various diameter shafts or tubes. All our standard flights are produced in mild steel but we can also quote for stainless steel flights , auger assemblies and segments.
