Key Features

  • Automatic Cage Flipping – A patent pending device automatically flips rodent cage bottoms with 99.9% accuracy. Cages arriving from a tunnel washer are received by a sloped shelf which controls the flipping upright of cages automatically. Compatible with standard cage types, adjustments are possible for non-standard rodent caging.
  • Controlled Dispensing – A variable speed drive motor ensures a controlled level of bedding is dispensed into cage bottoms as they pass through the unit. A rainfall of bedding fills each cage while the excess returns to the storage hopper.
  • Powered Roller Conveyor – Cages are transported using PVC coated stainless steel rollers which are interconnected using heavy duty o-rings for reduced noise and increased safety. The conveyor is powered by motorized rollers strategically located for optimum performance and ease of maintenance.
  • Ease of Use – The bedding dispenser features a PLC microprocessor with Start/Stop switches, indicator lights, and variable speed controls all located in the side mounted control panel. All parts and components are non-proprietary and available from local suppliers or the factory.
  • Productivity – A 10 cu/ft storage hopper can be filled manually using bagged bedding material or automatically with bedding delivered using our Sure-Flo Bedding Handling System, model S210, or our Sure-Vac, model S260.
  • Integration – Our bedding dispensers are designed for integration with our BetterBuilt T200 Series Tunnel Washers, our Sure-Flo Bedding Handling Systems, Sure-Vac, and our line of Activ Integrated Automation Solutions.
