Every stage of AP's bulk feed tank forming process - from corrugation to die-cut shaping to precision finishing - is completed in-house under direct control.
|Durable||High tensile, galvanized sidewall sheets|
|Deep Corrugation||2.66" Corrugation|
|High Strength Ladders||Roll Formed Sides, Dimpled Rungs for Better Grip|
|Stable||Roll Formed 6-Bend Legs|
|Hopper Slope Options||60° or 67°|
The high tensile steel sidewall sheets are made with a G-90 galvanized coating for strength and durability. The 2-2/3" (968mm) wide by 1/2" (13mm) deep panel curvature is tooled and shaped in-house for easy assembly.
Protection from the weather without capacity loss is the ultimate result of AP's drip lip water deflection system. It's one-of-a-kind design includes roll-formed bottom sheet edges which force water away from the hopper and lower boor area.
Roof panels are precision manufactured using die-form tooling to provide consistent quality. Both 30⁰ and 40⁰ roofs feature reinforcing ribs at each roof seam for added strength and rigidity.
Conveniently and safely operate AP's durable polyethylene feed tank lid from the ground. It swings open to a full 180°, lying flat and parallel to the ground from its position below the peak ring (on 7' and larger diameter bins.) Its simplified clamp-band design permits installation in a 360° orientation. The bin lid is available for 30° and 40° roof profiles, and retro-fit packages are available for 20" and 22-1/2" O.D. peak rings.
A non-interfering safety rail and fully die-formed sectional side ladder provide convenient and comfortable access to the feed tank. Ladder rungs are engineered to eliminate rung spin, and are dimpled for better grip. Galvanized ladder cages are available for tanks with an eave height of 20’ and higher.
AP hopper panels are available in 60⁰ and 67⁰ slope with a 16” or 22” hopper opening. They are die-formed with rounded corners and down-turned sealing edges for safety and a weather-tight fit. Rounded, truss-headed bolts reduce “bridging” of contents on inner surfaces.
