Standard Sweeps

Standard bin sweeps are available in 6″ (152.4mm), 8″ (203.2mm), and 10″ (254mm) sizes and can be used in bins ranging in size from 15′ (4.58m) to 42′ (12.8m). Torque tube and back shield adjust for close floor clearance. Bins 30′ or larger include an intermediate bearing to help stabilize the sweep flight. Sweep augers can be removed easily for placement into another bin of the same size.

Close Floor Clearance

The torque tube and backup shield adjust for close floor clearance so you get maximum bin cleanup, removing grain in one or two revolutions. On the end of the sweep, a rubber wheel supports the auger flighting and provides traction as the sweep rotates. If your bin is 30′ (9.14m) or larger, an intermediate bearing is included to help stabilize the sweep flighting. All our sweeps have sealed, self-aligning bearings to reduce replacement costs. Center wells have a 1″ (25.4mm) inner diameter pivot socket. You have the option of using a 4″ (101.6mm) depth extension on the pivot stem to raise the motor above the grain during the first stages of cleaning.

Bin Wells and Unload Tubes

The bin well with an unloading tube is an essential combination of components in an automatic bin unloading system. With these installed, a variety of components can be used to create the unloading system that best fits your needs. Bin wells are priced affordably, making them a good investment for every bin. For 15′ (4.57m) to 36′ (10.97m) diameter bins, unload tubes are available in lengths from 8′ (2.43m) to 18′ 6″ (5.64m).

All wells and tubes are built with long lasting, durable galvanized steel. Our bin wells work with an aeration/drying floor, preformed trench. We offer the full gate, concrete center, and the band-on intermediate wells with nylon rollers.

The illustrations below show two different bin well and unloading tube installation combinations.
