Grain Handling

We’re committed to building customized grain-handling sites. That commitment includes installing quality bucket elevators, conveying systems, and pneumatic blowers.

Bucket Elevators

Our energy-efficient bucket elevators gently handle free-flowing bulk materials such as grain, fertilizer, livestock feed, poultry feed ingredients, and aggregates. Premium components include galvanized buckets, rubber belts, and engineered bearings and shafts. Material discharged at up to 150 feet in height and 10,400 bushels/hour. Housed in a durable steel body.

AGI C-Line

The AGI C-Line bucket elevator can handle whole grains up to 10,400 bph and discharge heights to 150 ft.
