Auger style conveyors can only run for short periods of time before they become jammed with product. The run time can be as short as an hour before workers have to totally disassemble the auger and clean it. It takes 2-3 employees 30 minutes to an hour to disassemble and clean the auger. Belt conveyors with a simple open conveyor design do not have nooks and crannies where product can become lodged. Belt conveyors can run 24/7 or until there is a need to stop the process and change the batch.
