Loop Conveyor System

Loop Conveyors can be used to fill and empty grain bins and flat storage structures, or they can be applied to feed processing and other conveying applications. Available in 8, 10, and 12 inch diameters with capacities up to 10,000 bushels per hour, the modular design allows it to be customized for your needs. The UHMW paddles create less grain damage than traditional auger flighted conveying systems.
