Flexible Design
Chain Disk is ideally suited to delivering feed to multiple farrowing rooms, individual sow stalls, electronic sow feed systems and the high volumeAP Chain Disk Feed Delivery System Flexible Design
demands of large finishing facilities.

 

 

Gentle On Feed
The gentle conveying method limits damage to expensive pelleted rations and prevents particle
separation in ground feed rations.

Heavy-Duty Drive Units
Chain Disk drive units are constructed of corrosion resistant 304 stainless steel and feature heavy duty, high efficiency, helical bevel gearboxes. High efficiency means more torque with less horsepower decreasing operating cost
without sacrificing performance.

Auto Tensioning
Chain Disk drive units feature an automatic chain tensioning system to reduce maintenance and a
safety shut off switch to shut down the system if it becomes plugged by a foreign object.

Clear Corner Housings
Clear corner housings provide visual
confirmation the system is operating properly at all times. The patent pending pivoting wiper insures that feed does not accumulate in theClear Corner Housings
center of the corner housing. Special corner units are available for inclined or vertical installation. 

 

 

Chain Disk Tubing
Chain Disk is available with three styles of conveyor tubes to meet the requirements of every application.

  • PVC Tube – Corrosion free and quick and easy to install, ideal for farrowing and other low volume applications
  • Ribbed Steel Tube – Wear resistance of steel combined with the convenience of pre-punched holes
  • Welded Steel Tube – Ideal for high volume applications like finishing and electronic sow feeding.

AP Flex Flo Auger Feed Delivery System

AP’s Flex-Flo™ flexible auger feed delivery system delivers a continuously metered flow of feed from the bin to the Chain Disk system.

 

 

Quality Chain
Durable, low friction nylon disks injection molded onto hardened steel chain provide years of trouble free service eliminating the maintenance and down time associated with cable style conveyors.

Tube Sensor
A tube mounted sensor will shut down the system when feed returns to the Tube Sensorinlet hopper indicating that all feeders have been filled. Chain Disk’s sensor design eliminates the challenges caused by empty farrowing or nursery rooms and eliminates the task of correctly position sows in your breeding and gestation facilities to keep the feed system operating correctly.

 

 

  Chain Disk Controller

Chain Disk Controller
The Chain Disk Controller enables the feeding system to be programmed to operate how and when you want and constantly monitors the system to insure proper operation. Drive unit motor current is constantly monitored to insure that the system is not over loaded. When amp draw spikes, the Flex-Flo fill system is temporarily shut down by the controller until the drive unit motor amp draw decreases and normal operation resumes. A programmable maximum run timer will shut down the Chain Disk and the Flex-Flo systems if the system runs continuously for an excessive amount of time indicating that a bin is empty or a costly feed spill is occurring.

Available in two models, the APCD -500 features a 24 hour time clock and actuator outputs making it ideal for automated feeding in breeding and farrowing facilities.
