The high carbon wire can be either oil tempered or induction hardened. Most of our wires have a consistent hardness of about 38/39 HRC. A higher hardness can be achieved on request. High hardness is essential to tolerate the dynamic forces applied on the auger system. The high fatigue life of the wire results in a long lifetime and a reliable performance.
When our auger wire is used in animal feeding equipment, it endures high frictional stress and abrasion. The high hardness of our wire increases the wear resistance to make your equipment function seamlessly for longer.
