FOR HEAVY DUTY USE / PORT TERMINALS
The sweepauger ODS FE L unloads, without any human intervention, the remaining grain (wheat, corn, barley, sunflower seeds, paddy…) on the floor of flat bottom silos after the discharge by gravity.
Installation is done on flat bottom silos with concrete or metallic walls.
L model is perfectly adapted for heavy duty use like in port terminals.
Two versions available for all kinds of products to discharge (motor in silo or in tunnel)
Grain port terminals traffic increases every year, requiring the most up-to-date technology able to fit heavy duty use.
Large installation, high performance, indisputable quality : the perfect cocktail for ODS.
ODS provides “Zero Human Entry” heavy duty sweepaugers for port and river terminals.
Version with gearmotor in silo
The screw is directly coupled to a parallel shaft gear motor. The gear motor is assembled on a heavy duty ball crown and connected to an electric rotary collector for a continuous rotation of the sweepauger around the silo.
Thanks to an evolutive design, adaptations can be proposed to reach very large discharge rates for existing silos.
Intermediate outlets with slide gates are required for an easy start-up of the sweepauger.
This model has a reduced footprint in the tunnel.
Version with motor outside silo (inside the tunnel)
This version has the motor and the belt transmission located in the tunnel. The belt transmission is connected to a gear angle in central position allowing a continuous rotation of the sweepauger.
Intermediate outlets with a slide gates are required for an easy startup of the sweepauger.

The particular rigidity of the beam, thanks to a special design and a fabrication using the most relevant materials, allows a permanent penetration of the sweepauger in the mass of materials.
HIGH PERFORMANCES TO GUARANTEE DISCHARGE RATES
All along the screw, the material is regularly absorbed, from the extremity until the central outlet. This allows an easy operation, and a quiet sweeping of the material, limiting collapses of material inside the silo.
The sweepauger is permanently and softly backed on to the mass of materials, only advancing when there is room enough.
HUMAN SAFETY DISCHARGE OPERATION
This sweepauger has been elaborated with a high conscience of safety, having in mind that it doesn’t need any human presence in the silo during the operation.
It is recommended to put a “safety device” at the door entrance in the silo, prohibiting to open the door when the sweepauger is operating.
The motor can be located either on the equipment itself inside the silo, or under the silo in the tunnel. The direct coupling gear motor/screw (motor in the silo) gives an optimal efficiency to the screw.
The regularity of unloading rate optimizes the unloading time and participates to energy savings.
PERFORMANT ADVANCE SYSTEM
The advance of the sweepauger is performed by one (or several) squirrel cage wheel with rubber bars.
Using a specific mechanism and appropriate adjustments, the wheel never slips on the silo floor.
The wheel has also a self cleaning design.
As a standard, a belt transmission drives the wheel rotation, which gives the guarantee of a long lasting operation.
PARKING POSITION SENSOR
To receive an electric signal when the sweepauger is back in parking position. This system avoids any visual control of the parking position.
Having it along the silo wall gives an accurate position to the sweepauger when stopping in parking position.
Located on the back of the frame. It helps cleaning the silo floor. Efficiency is even better when floor is smooth.
HOPPER LEVEL DETECTOR
Located inside the central hopper, it sends a signal to stop automatically the sweepauger if the unloading hopper is clogged with excess materials. This device protects the machine against damages.
SIDE WALL CLEANING SCREW
To even improve the cleaning of the accumulated material along the silo wall.
Two versions available according to the function needed (uncompaction/cleaning).
A control panel including the last technology can be proposed to drive the sweepauger.
A gear motor can be installed on the wheel to give a high advance pressure to the screw.
ANTI ABRASION PACK
Developed for materials having abrasion properties. It includes special extra protection on the most sensitive parts in contact with the materials.
