Flexible and Adaptable

Nothing compares to AP's Flex-Flo™ Feed Delivery System’s flexibility and adaptability. Using PVC tubing as the carrier of feed not only provides flexibility in facility design but reduces dust, provides protection against insect and rodent contamination and reduces stressful operation noise. Flex-Flo systems are capable of spanning distances up to 250 feet*. For applications requiring greater distances, extension hoppers are available that can expand the delivery range and provide access 90 degrees from the main line.

*Limitations apply for specific Flex-Flo models. See your dealer for more information.

Quality Auger

AP augers are coiled in-house from high tensile steel wire, flattened prior to hardening for a more consistent, higher quality product. Flex-Flo models 300, HR, 350 and 500 undergo an exclusive manufacturing process for improved durability compared to a traditional auger.

Flex-Flo™ Control Unit

Flex-Flo control units utilize proprietary sensing technology for dependable feed delivery. The control unit can automatically adjusts sensing calibration to accommodate seasonal changes and wash-downs.  Bi-color LED provides quick verification of operating status. The unit is constructed from non-corrosive materials for long life.

 All electrical connections are safely housed in a plastic, water-resistant control box.

Power Units

The Flex-Flo™ auger is driven by a 1/3 to 1-1/2 horsepower/standard 358 RPM totally-enclosed fan-cooled motor (other speeds are available for special applications). Whether direct or belt-driven, the drive system includes an easily-accessible maintenance port. A safety back-up switch automatically stops and restarts the motor if feed backs up in the line, indicated by a warning light. A thermal overload reset switch allows the system to be restarted once the motor has cooled.

SmartIR Sensor

SmartIR utlizes infrared technology to detect the level of feed and control all functions of the feed delivery system. Features include digital display with push button operation, an on delay timer (to delay the start of the auger and eliminate short cycling) and maximum run timer (to prevent costly feed spills or excessive wear caused by empty feed bins or feed bridging).

SmartIR II Sensor

The SMARTIR II* uses the same advanced feed detection logic as the SmartIR with additional features including idle time alarm and Network Master connection capability via RS-485 network.
