BULK FEED TANK

AP’s Bulk Feed Tanks perfectly illustrate the attention to detail that quality demands. Every stage of the forming process, from corrugation to die-cut shaping to precision finishing, is controlled at our own facilities to assure quality is maintained.

The upper eave, where the hopper is joined to the sidewall, is specially die-formed to conform to the shape of the sidewall corrugation. Most other manufacturers depend on crimping and bolt pressure to force the connection which produces corrosion-prone distortion and dimpling of the sidewall.

HOPPER SLOPES
Assembly with rounded, truss-head bolts reduces content bridging.

STURDY SIDE LADDERS
A unique, non-interfering safety rail and fully die-formed, section ladder comfortable access. provide solid, sideladder provide solid.

Hopper Collar
The hopper collar is a critical component of the Bulk Feed Tank. 30% stronger than the industry standard 14 gauge collar.

ADDED SECURITY
Ladder rungs are dimpled for better footing in inclement weather. Additional security when ascending or descending the tank.

EASY GROUND CONTROL
AP’s feed tank bin lid is easily opened
and closed from the ground using a
simple pull chain system.

REINFORCED BELTING
Reinforced rubber bumper provides protection to peak ring.

SECURE DESIGN
An internal magnet adds additional
holding power to keep the lid closed.

OPTIONAL SNOW GUARD
Optional Snow Guard helps deter blowing snow
from entering the tank.

Roof panels are precision manufactured using die-form tooling to provide
consistent quality. Both 30° and 40° roofs feature reinforcing ribs at each roof
seam for added strength and rigidity.

BOOTS & UNLOADERS

AP offers several boot styles including straight drop, 30°, and double boot models. All are chemically blended with specially formulated ultraviolet inhibitors and impact modifiers to enhance durability and resilience. AP’s translucent boot models provide an easy visual of bin feed levels. In addition, AP unloaders are available for 2.2” (55mm), 3” (75mm), 3.5” (90mm) and 5” (125mm) Flex Flo™ or 4” and 6” rigid auger systems.

Straight Drop Boot
30° Drop Boot

SMART MONITORING IN REAL-TIME

Monitor feed usage, track feed levels, and receive
automatic notifications from the EDGE Bin Scale
system. Its cloud-based architecture allows
remote connections via any web-enabled device,
giving you the ability to analyze data in real-time
and respond quickly to any issue.

LOAD CELL ASSEMBLY

The rugged load cell assemblies are specifically designed for the harsh environment of a hog facility and adapt easily to most feed bins utilizing the existing anchor bolts. Two models of load cells are available; a standard unit for up to 5,000 lbs. (2,250 kg.) per bin leg and a high-capacity model rated at up to 10,000 lbs. (4,500 kg.) per bin leg. The
compact design of the load cell assemblies increases the overall height of the feed bin only by approximately three inches (eight centimeters).

GO WITH THE SURE-FLO

An available option for 16” to 22” hoppers, Sure-Flo directs feed down the hopper of the bin rather than down the center creating a first in, first out feed flow. The gentle movement of the heavy-duty molded cone enhances flow as feed passes over it.  The Sure-Flo support bracket easily bolts to the hopper collar of new or existing feed bins.

FLOW HAMMER

Feed bridging is more common as feed rations change due to fluctuating input costs and the use of alternative feed stuffs to lower cost and gain feed efficiency. The Flow
Hammer is a reliable and affordable solution that easily adapts to most existing feed bins. This patent pending product aids in the prevention of out-of-feed events in all
phases of swine production.

The Flow Hammer’s low frequency / high impact design
promotes feed flow without damaging your feed bin or voiding
its warranty.

Improve your efficiency with AP’s selection of dependable feed storage, feed management and feed delivery systems.

View Windows

Save yourself a trip up and

For moving feed up and around
corners, AP Flex-Flo™ elbows are
specially formed with increased wall
thickness on the inside of the elbow
for added strength and wear
resistance.

** Maximum system length will decrease by 25 ft. (8 M) for each additional corner that is added. Up to twenty-four corners can be used.

TUBE SENSOR

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 gestation facilities to keep the feed sows in your breeding and system operating correctly.

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

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 theontroller 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 uncontinuously for an excessive amount of time indicating that a bin is empty or a costly feed spill is occurring.

EDGE CONTROLLER

EDGE is a single platform that is versatile and intuitive allowing it to handle all control applications. The unique design makes EDGE the only controller on the market that can be configured to match your operation’s specific requirements. It is also flexible enough to be adapted to new construction or existing system upgrades. Throughout your animals’ growth stages, you and EDGE are in control, managing and monitoring ventilation, cooling, heating, lighting, feeding and watering systems.

More than a product, EDGE™ is the next generation of controller, a platform designed to evolve and expand with you and your operation for years to come.

MONITORING & MANAGEMENT

INFORMATION AT A GLANCE
Navigation is easy with the large, 15” color touchscreen.
Everything is right in front of you for quick, easy navigation.



SELF-DIAGNOSTICS

Should anything go wrong, the built-in self-diagnostics make
troubleshooting easy. Before you go flipping through a manual or
calling tech support, self-diagnostics can identify a number of
issues.


CURRENT SENSORS

Each variable output and relay is equipped with a current
sensor, which allows the system to monitor electrical current.




REMOTE CONNECTIVITY

Plug in an Ethernet cable and you are ready to take control of
the system from the comfort of your truck, office, couch, and
anywhere in between.



MULTI-ROOM / MULTI-BARN CONTROL

With EDGE, you have the power to control multiple barns or
rooms from a single controller using one interface. Consider a
typical sow farm operation with breeding and gestation, farrowing
and gilt development facilities. Historically, each room would
require a separate controller.

PURAFIRE HEATER

With one of the lowest carbon monoxide outputs in the industry (CO emissions of 5 parts per million), Cumberland PuraFire
Heaters are able to produce 225,000 BTUH Per hour. Each heater is LP or nature gas compatible and can be mounted inside or
outside any house. These heaters are constructed of tough, rust-resistant galvanized steel for longevity and
durability.
Bottom-draw intake of PuraFire promotes a better control of the air flow into and throughout the entire unit and provides a more
efficient mix of air and gas. Cool air channeled along the inside casing, creates a buffer that makes the exterior casing safe to
touch. This air pattern results in a unique bent flame design, which greatly increases the flame’s surface area and heat chamber
efficiency.text

• Consistent, clean burning source of warmth with near 100% fuel efficiency.
• Thermostat operated.
• Intelligent trouble-shooting safety features.
• In case of flame failure, automatic fan shut down stops drafts & gas control lockout prevents gas from  
  escaping.
• 30% gas saving vs conventional brooder.
• Bottom-draw for better air flow control.
•“Bent flame” design greatly increases flame surface area and heat chamber efficiency.
• Exterior surface is safe to touch.
•Motor assembly, blower, gas valve, control panel and other components are protected from moisture, dirt and      
  dust for longer lifespan.
