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.
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.
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.

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 • Welded Steel Tube – Ideal for high volume applications like finishing and electronic sow feeding • Welded Steel Tube w/ Pre-Cut Holes – High volume performance with the addec convenience of pre-cut holes to reduce installation time. Hole spacing is available in 18”, 19”,20”, 22”, 23” and 24”
AP’s Flex-Flo™ flexible auger feed delivery system delivers a continuously metered flow of feed from the bin to the Chain Disk system.
* Effective capacity will decrease as system length increases, effective capacity at maximum length is reduced by approximately 40% ** 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.
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.
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.

The ELECTRONIC PSI IGNITION is standard on all Super-Saver heater models. The heating chamber is made of high temp aluminized steel for superior rust protection. The cast iron burners are enamel dipped to eliminate dust adhesion and rust. The air intake surrounding increases combustion and heat change efficiency
The Outside mount model is a forced air heater complete with all relevant installation hardware
The inside mount model is a gas circulating heater ideal for a confinement environment
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. •Swinging doors on each side allow access to all working parts. •Even heat distribution.
