Adapt to the demands of farrowing, nursery and finishing units with the flexible feed delivery of Chain Disk. It's perfectly suited to deliver high capacities at long distances through multiple turns.
|Gentle Conveying Limits Feed Damage|
|Flexible, High Volume Design|
|Clear Corner Housings Provide Easy Visual Inspection|
Chain Disk is ideally suited for delivering feed to multiple farrowing rooms, individual sow stalls, electronic sow feed systems and high-volume finishing facilities.
The gentle conveying method of Chain Disk's cast iron wheel limits damage to expensive pelleted rations and prevents particle separation in ground feed.
Chain Disk's rugged design, quality components and unique control system out-perform the competition in capacity, distance and durability.
The Chain Disk Controller is available in two models:
The high-efficiency drive units of Chain Disk perform with more torque and less horsepower, decreasing operatings costs. They are constructed of corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel and feature heavy duty, helical-bevel gearboxes.
Durable, low friction nylon disks injection-molded onto hardened steel chain provide years of trouble-free service and eliminate the maintenance and down-time associated with cable-style conveyors.
Chain Disk drive units feature an automatic chain tensioning system to reduce maintenance. Chain tension is automatically corrected by a spring-loaded tensioning wheel.A safety shut-off switch shuts down the system if it becomes obstructed.
Visually confirm proper operation of Chain Disk in an instant with clear corner housings. The pivoting wiper* prevents feed accumulation in the center of the corner housing, and a cast iron wheel gently guides the chain through tight corners. Special corner units are available for inclined or vertical installation. Plus, the ball bearing is sealed for years of trouble-free service.

A tube-mounted sensor shuts the system down when feed returns to the inlet hopper (an indication that all feeders are full.) Chain Disk keeps the feed flowing with a sensor design that eases the challenges caused by empty farrowing or nursery rooms and eliminates the task of correctly positioning sows in breeding and gestation facilities.
