Custom structural frames are used to support holding bins, conveyors, and conditioning equipment. Our staff has design and fabrication experience with seed conditioning towers, sheller buildings, and large elevated conveyor structures, as well as many smaller equipment stands and access platform supports.
These units are designed to meet increasing demand for large volumes of bulk seed products. Seed is weighed in the overhead bin during bag placement, increasing bag throughput compared to traditional methods. The bag is held in position by a circular inlet spout and adjustable cantilevered loop holders. Concentric inlet spouts are used to remove excess air from the bag during the filling operation. Product can be supplied from an overhead bin, spout, or variable speed belt conveyor.
Most seed facilities require a wide variety of custom hoppers and fittings to connect equipment from different vendors or for installation in confined areas. AEC personnel have extensive experience with custom fittings, and can custom design and build to suit your requirements.
Rebag systems include equipment for unloading seed from conventional bags, large bulk bags, or pallet boxes. Unloading hoppers, access platforms, and knife boxes are available to meet specific local requirements.
Dust collectors are used to remove nuisance dust from exhaust air. Cyclone type collectors are simple, low cost units which separate heavy dust particles by centrifugal force. Passive bag filters use oversize cloth bags to filter dusty air, and operate at higher efficiencies than centrifugal separators. Both types are sometimes used in series when handling extremely dusty air or large particulate material such as cobs.
Retrofit doors replace the existing plastic panels found on many existing spiral separator cabinets. These doors provide a larger access opening and better dust control than older designs, and can be equipped with removable “lift off” hinges when required. The oversize window kit permits visual inspection, limiting the need to open the door during operation.
