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.

Flex-Flo™ PVC tubing is extruded in-house under strict quality control to maintain exacting standards in the manufacturing process. Flex-Flo tubing is UV stabilized, provides excellent wear resistance and can accommodate a variety of feed system designs.
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 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.
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.
Flex-Flo control units features a clear access door for quick and easy visual inspection.
The Flex-Flo control unit features a sealed sensor area to prevent moisture penetration and all electrical connections are safely housed in a plastic, water-resistant control box.
