The Hutchinson Grain Pump is a continuous grain loop conveying system (chain conveyor), that incorporates the functions of many of the traditional grain systems that have been in the market place for a long time. The grain loop can incorporate many storage bin units and provide easy in-load and out-load to trucks or wagons, moving grain vertically and horizontally with ease.

The Hutchinson Grain Pump, sometimes referred to as the Hutchinson Grain Loop, when joining a line of storage bins, can be designed to provide the following advantages for your farm or commercial storage system:

  1. Quick convenient in-load.
  2. Quick convenient out-load.
  3. Blending of grains.
  4. Turning grain within one bin or from one bin to another bin.
  5. Easy incorporation of “off-line” functions such as drying, cleaning, rolling, grinding or other processing.
  6. Ease of expansion.
  7. Ability to incorporate many bins into the system.
  8. And, all with push button automation.

The Hutchinson loop lets you move product with gentle efficiency and at high capacities, requiring less horsepower and causing less damage. The unique U.H.M.W. (Ultra High Molecular Weight) paddle keeps grain flowing gently and evenly from inlet to discharge, taking the place of traditional auger flighting. The closed loop design offers the versatility to create a complete load-in/load-out system with re-circulation capabilities. It can be installed underneath a row of bins or in an existing in-line system.

  • An entire family of attachments and options enable the system to accommodate any bin combination.
  • Provides expansion capabilities
  • Needs less maintenance that traditional conveying systems
  • Can reduce drying costs by blending higher moisture grain and dried grain from one bin to another

The simplicity of the Hutchinson design, with four 90° corners completing a rectangular loop and driven by only one or two motors, makes the choice between conventional systems and this one a very easy one. Round Ultra High Molecular Weight (U.H.M.W.) plastic paddles are spaced every 13 inches and are notched to facilitate chain sprockets in each corner.

Owners have found a reduction in damage when compared to traditional conveying systems and the durability of the paddles is unbeatable. The closed-loop design allows you push-button convenience with the effectiveness of a bucket system with savings of up to 40%.

  • The high capacity load-in/load-out system also provides re-circulation capabilities
  • One or more bins can be unloaded simultaneously with the loop
  • Reduced drying costs can be achieved by blending higher moisture and dried grain from one bin to another
  • Configuration versatility allows the system to be installed underneath a row of bins in an existing in-line system, or angled to pick-up from conventional unload augers in front of the bins
  • Simple integration facilitating off-line processing such as drying, cleaning or rolling/grinding
  • Ease of manipulating multiple separations
  • Expandable. It can be structured to enable ease of future expansions

The Hutchinson Grain Pump is a continuous loop grain conveying system that moves grain between the many operations required by an efficient grain handling system. The Hutchinson grain loop can replace all of the traditional conveying systems (vertical conveyors, vertical bucket elevators, chain conveyors, grain legs, and drag chain conveyors) with one versatile grain handling system. The Grain Pump is a continuous loop of chain conveyor and galvanised tubing encircling your bins at the bottom and around the top, enabling the connection of many bins into one grain system, that can be selectively filled and emptied with ease.

The innovative Hutchinson Grain Pump™ lets you move grain with gentle efficiency and at high capacities using a very simple and powerful chain conveyor system, in an enclosed loop. This loop chain conveyor will both elevate and conveyor your grain horizontally all with one simple piece of equipment. Compared to the traditional bucket elevator / level drag conveyor system design the loop conveyor accomplishes all of the same tasks with one piece of equipment that would require as much as 10 different pieces in the traditional way of handling grain – obviously there are going to be some cost savings with the loop conveyor. The other obvious savings is reduced maintenance cost, if you have one piece of equipment with one drive (loop conveyor) compared to the traditional bucket elevator system that achieves all the same tasks as a loop with 10 different drives – which do you think will produce more maintenance issues?

The UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weighted) paddles inside the continuous loop of tubing are designed to keep your grain flowing gently and evenly from inlet to discharge – just like the UHMW paddles you will see in traditional level drag conveyors these paddles prevent steel on steel contact in the conveyor which reduces wear and increases conveyor life. These round, plastic UHMW paddles cover most of the circle inside the pipe (notched on one side to allow the paddle to pass by the sprocket corners) which allows this chain conveyor to elevate the grain as well as convey it horizontally. The paddles move through the pump on heavy-duty chain designed specifically for the system and the loads presented.

The closed-loop design offers the versatility to create a complete load-in/load-out system that also provides recirculation capabilities. One or more bins can be unloaded at a time into the loop. Reduced drying costs can be achieved with this innovative system by blending higher moisture and dried grain from one bin to another.
The possibilities are nearly unlimited. Install the pump beneath a row of bins, or in an existing in-line system, the pump may be angled to pick up from conventional unload in front. The system may provide down-the-road expansion capabilities.

The pump can incorporate many storage bin units and provide easy in-load and out-load to trucks or wagons, moving product vertically and horizontally with ease. The Hutchinson system, when joining a line of storage bins, can be designed to provide the following advantages for your farm or commercial storage system:

  2. Quick convenient out-load

  8. And all with push button automation

Features:

  • An entire family of attachments and options enable the system to accommodate any bin combination.
  • Provides expansion capabilities. In the first phase of the system install large enough drive corners to allow you to extend the loop length to more bins in the future.
  • Needs less maintenance that traditional conveying systems. This is one piece of equipment doing the work of as many as ten in the traditional Bucket Elevator / Level drag Conveyor system design
  • Can reduce drying costs by blending higher and lower moisture product from one bin to another.
  • Can increase your volume of higher grades of grain by allowing you to easily blend off lower quality grains into higher quality at the push of a button.

The Hutchinson Grain Pump is the most versatile grain handling system in the market today.

Increase your versatility and provide expansion capabilities at the same time with your storage system. The grain system design around the Hutchinson Grain Pump lets you move product with gentle efficiency and at high capacities requiring less horsepower and causing less damage to grain. Hutchinson’s unique UHMW paddle keeps grain flowing gently and evenly from inlet to discharge, taking the place of traditional auger flighting. The closed loop grain system design offers the versatility to create a complete load-in/load-out system with re-circulation capabilities.
