Sudenga unveils new bin sweep technology

Agriculture.com Staff 10/14/2009 @ 10:00am

Sudenga has recently shipped the industry's first, automatically extending grain sweeps. The Extend-A-Sweep is an industrial-duty auger system designed to sweep the newest generation of grain bins in sizes up to 156 feet in diameter. In addition, this same Sweep, is the first in the industry capable of automatically sweeping non-round flat storage floors.

The Extend-A-Sweep utilizes advanced mechanical and electrical technology to sweep the grain bin at a rate of up to 10,000 bushels per hour. When sweeping a round grain bin, the sweep makes an initial pass at roughly half the diameter of the bin. After making this first pass, the sweep extension feature is engaged. The Sweep automatically extends as it makes its second pass, essentially sweeping the bin floor in a spiral until it completes a full, second rotation, clearing the bin of grain.

To learn more, contact Sudenga Industries, Inc. at 888/783-3642 or visit them on the Web at www.sudenga.com.
