Automated Production Systems - Bulk Feed Tanks
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 on each and every feed tank.
Precision Quality Bin Roofs
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.
60° & 67° Hopper Slopes
Available in 60° and 67° slopes in either a 16” or 22” hopper opening, AP hopper panels are die-formed with rounded corners and down-turned sealing edges for safety and a weather tight fit. Assembly with rounded, truss-head bolts reduces content “bridging”.
Easy Install Bin Lid
AP’s feed tank lid swings fully open on 7’ diameter bins and larger and includes a reinforced belting bumper on the clamp band for additional protection. Other features include a durable, linear low-density polyethylene construction and a magnetic latching mechanism for additional holding power.
AP’s drip lip water deflection system is a one-of-a-kind, roll-formed bottom sheet edge which forces water away from the hopper and lower boot area, giving complete weather protection without a loss in capacity.
Optional Hopper Valves
AP’s easy access hopper valve for hopperbottom bins provides a simple, effective solution to accessing a small amount of material* to a location not serviced by the auger system.
*Recommended up to 15 ton maximum, this valve should be mounted no higher than 2” above the hopper valve collar. This valve is to be used for drawing small amounts of material only and not as the primary outlet. Failure to comply with correct use will void warranty.
