The Sure-Flo S200 Series Soiled Bedding Removal System is a tubular drag-chain conveying system designed to transport moist soiled rodent bedding and materials from a cage wash facility to a disposal dumpster without clogging.
- Solid Construction – Systems are available in either stainless steel, including the conveying chain, or in painted carbon steel with carbon steel chain. The system provides a maximum capacity of 2200lbs/hr [997kg/hr] of continuous conveying.
- Chain Link Assembly – The conveyor consists of a continuous, true chain link mounted with solid circular disks which are a two-piece bolted design made of UHMW. The split disk design enables changing only the bottom half-disk which is subjected to wear.
- Continuous Tensioning Station [Patented] – A chain tensioning station takes up slack in the chain and automatically adjusts for tension changes. Proper chain tension minimizes wear, reduces downtime and maintenance costs, and the possibility of the chain being misaligned.
- Minimal Space Required – A typical Sure-Flo system consists of conveying piping, UHMW disks, chain, main drive station, continuous tensioning station, inlet port, bedding dump station, discharge port, and a control panel. No additional space is required for a mechanical room.
- Energy Savings – Each system consists of a main 3hp drive motor which pulls the chain. Optional 1/2hp turn station motors to assist in the horizontal or vertical change of direction may also be used. Typical system energy requirements are considerably less as compared to vacuum systems.
- Dump Station – Soiled bedding dump station is stainless-steel construction with a removable grill provided as the main work surface. The grill is rubber coated to protect the cages and reduce noise during the cage dumping process. The dump station can be designed as a downdraft unit which captures dust and allergens when integrated with the optional dust collection unit.
- No Specialized Dumpster – Soiled bedding materials are collected in a soiled container typically located at, or near, the dock area. These containers can be collection bins, standard facility containers, or dedicated containers for soiled bedding materials. Container supply and collection of waste is to be coordinated with a local waste management company.
