The standard distributor’s inner spout and ducts are set to provide 45 degree flow path for the material. A taller distributor with a 60 degree flow path is available for handling materials such as feed. A 45 degree and 60 degree inner spouts are made oversize to ensure unrestricted flow of the material.
Flat Back Distributor
Any style distributor can be made with a section of the round body cutaway. This enables you to position the distributor inlet up close to the discharge and trunking of a bucket elevator.
The description for a fertilizer distributor is the same as on our standard distributor except for the following additions:
All parts that move against one another, to affect the rotation of the inner spout, are made of type 304 stainless steel. This consists of the inlet collar and the top of the inner spout. The door frame is also made from stainless steel.
The shaft used for the lifting and rotating of the revolving spout is made from the stainless steel and slides and rotates inside a UHMW bearing plate.
The SyncroSet indexing bearing is made of graphite impregnated, high-impact phenolic and rotates on a stainless steel bushing.
Stainless steel operating cable is provided for 50 feet of remote operation.
As an option, complete sandblasting and epoxy coating of the exterior and interior of the unit is available.
Stainless Steel or Galvanized Steel Distributors
Any style distributor can be ordered using either stainless steel (type 304 standard) or galvanized steel construction.
On a heavy duty distributor, the inner spout is made with a removable urethane liner. The ducts are provided with a replaceable high carbon steel duct liner that just drops in place.
Material overflow can be handled by either a top-mounted overflow valve or by a built-in internal overflow on the bottom of the distributor.
Electronic “EDI” Control is standard when ordering an electric Distributor. Limit switch option is also available for SyncroSet and SwingSet Distributors.
We can provide seals that seal off both the bottom and top of the inner spout. The standard style of bottom dust seal only seals around the duct being fed but a full bottom seal is available.
