Chain Disk feed delivery systems have the flexibility
to adapt to all types of swine production facilities
and the ability to overcome the performance and
reliability constraints of other systems.
Chain Disk is ideally suited to
delivering feed to multiple farrowing
rooms, individual sow
Gentle On Feed
The gentle conveying method
limits damage to expensive
pelleted rations and prevents
Chain Disk’s rugged design,
quality components and unique
control system enable it to outperform
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.
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
plugged by a
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
center of the
corner units are
inclined or vertical
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’s Flex-Flo™ flexible auger feed delivery system delivers a continuously metered flow of feed from the bin to the Chain Disk system.
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.
A tube mounted sensor will shut down the system when feed returns to the inlet 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
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.
Drops & Drop Feeders
Chain Disk systems can be equipped with a wide variety of AP’s volumetric sow feeders and outlet drops including a pneumatic actuated unit for fully automated multi-ration feeding. Consider AP’s Chain Disk for your next feed delivery system.
