Kenco Auger Shoes bolt over base auger flights, virtually eliminating wear to the base auger. Should the Auger Shoes ever wear out, simply remove them and bolt on new shoes. Kenco Shaft Shields fit over the auger tube to protect it from abrasive wear. They are installed by plug welding and can be torch cut, if necessary.
If most of the original diameter still remains, an auger can be rebuilt by bolting on Kenco Auger Shoes. However, it is preferable to immediately protect a new base auger with Kenco Auger Shoes and Shaft Shields. This may allow the base auger to last for the entire service life of the plant or machinery in which it operates.
