Configuring an AGI En-Masse Conveyor:

Configuring an AGI En-Masse Conveyor:

The following steps outline the process of configuring an appropriate AGI conveyor for your application. These steps are intended as a guide only. We strongly advise contacting AGI to review your application and obtain the appropriate recommendations for your specific needs. 

STEP 1: Determine application requirements
  • Material type handled
  • Power requirements vary for different grains
  • The method of feeding the conveyor: The conveyor can be flood-fed where the capacity of the conveyor is determined by the speed of the chain. The conveyor can be control-fed by a bucket elevator, for example. The conveyor capacity is affected by how it is fed.
  • The required system capacity in bushels per hour or metric tons per hour
  • The length between the input and output of the conveyor


STEP 2: Select a standard model size
  • Review the model specifications in the En-Masse Conveyor section of the current AGI sales manual to choose a standard model based on the desired capacity


STEP 3: Choose options
  • Determine any desired options


STEP 4: Verify power, bearing diameter and maximum conveyor length
  • Use the tables in the current AGI sales manual to determine horsepower and bearing diameter requirements as well as maximum acceptable conveyor lengths.


STEP 5: Verify dimensions for the selected model size
  • Use the diagrams and tables in the current AGI sales manual for verification
