Feeders

Feeders

A range of heavy duty pig feeders is available. Available as a single feeder or a multiple feeder. All fittings are made from high grade stainless steel and the plastic body is extremely strong. These units are easily cleaned and can be adjusted to regulate the amount of feed required.

Nothing beats PE Services’s Flex-Flo™ feed delivery system in flexibility and adaptability. Using PVC tubing as the carrier of feed not only provides flexibility in facility design, but reduces dust, provides protection against insect and rodent contamination, and reduces stressful operation noise.

SYSTEM EFFICIENCY

PE Services offers several unloader systems including single, twin, tandem and twin tandem models. The Flex-Flo auger can be direct or belt driven by a 1/3 to 1 – 1/2 horsepower, totally enclosed fan cooled motor at a standard 358 RPM (other speeds are available for special applications). A wide selection of accessory equipment is also available including extension hoppers to adjust auger lengths, time clocks, automatic shut-off switches, intermediate drop kits, and y-drops.

FLEX-FLO™ MODELS

Both tubing and augers are available in four sizes and five models with capacities ranging from 15 lbs. to 220 lbs./minute (6.8 kg to 99.8 kg/min.). Whether it’s ground feed, crumble feed, mash, high moisture corn, shelled corn or pellets, PE Services has the equipment to handle it.

For corn with up to 27% moisture and other hard to flow material, PE Services also offers a Flex-Flo™ High Roughage system which incorporates a special combination of a 3″ (75 mm) auger in a 3 – 1/2″ (90 mm) tube to reduce plugging.

DIRECT DRIVE UNIT & STRAIGHT TRANSITION BOOT

The Flex-Flo™ auger is driven by a 1/3 to 1-1/2 horsepower, totally enclosed, fan cooled motor at a standard 358 RPM (other speeds are available for special applications).

Whether direct or belt driven, the drive system includes an easily accessible maintenance port a safety back-up switch which automatically stops and restarts the motor if for any reason feed backs up in the line (a readily visible warning light comes on to notify you that this is occurring) … and an automatic thermal shut-off switch which allows you to restart the system when the motor has cooled off.) All electrical connections are made in a plastic, water resistant control box.

AROUND THE BEND

For moving feed up in the air and around corners, Flex-Flo™ tubing is available in specially formed elbows with increased wall thickness on the inside of the elbow for strength and wear resistance.

QUALITY AUGER

PE Services’s augers are coiled in-house from high tensile steel. The steel wire we use is flattened prior to hardening, providing for a more consistent, higher quality product.

TUBING BLEND

PE Services’s polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tubing is mixed and formed in our own facility to exacting standards under strict quality control. Blending our own PVC allows us to formulate the optimum compound for UV stabilization, strength, and wear resistance.
