Traditionally, grain bin owners have emptied bins using a combination of gravity and augers or bin sweep technology. However, these approaches leave grain on the bin floor that needs to be manually swept out. It’s a time-consuming, dirty job that can be dangerous if done while an auger is still running.
GSI’s new, patent-pending FlexWave technology eliminates this labor-intense, inefficient task. The system uses two large liners that take turns inflating and deflating to gently push any leftover grain into a centrally-located conveyor trough. A control system automatically senses the amount of grain and shuts off once the process is complete.
