The Circu-Lator 2 can function as a recirculating unit or as a continuous-flow dryer using transfer equipment for most any free-flowing grain, including corn, soybeans, wheat, milo, and rape.
8" Center Vertical
The center vertical auger rotates gently elevating the grain up the center of the bin. A 1/2" cushion space between the heavy flighting and tube prevents grain damage. When the continuous flow auger is in operation the grain is pulled away to storage. If it is not in operation, the grain is elevated to the recirculation spreader and re-spread evenly on top.
Heavy Duty Gearbox
Rugged gearboxes are built for long years of durable service. They are packed with moly grease, have oversize 1 1/4" stressproof shafts, hardened steel gears and tapered thrust bearings. They are protected by three seals on every shaft opening and zerks are provided for directly lubricating each bearing. The weight of the center vertical auger is borne by a rugged cast iron spider wheel which transmits the load to thrust bearings.
8" Horizontal Unload Auger
The drying bin can be unloaded independently of the Circu-Lator through the built-in unloading system. The horizontal discharge unit may be converted to vertical discharge with the addition of an 'add-on' vertical unloader.
Tapered Sweep Auger
Two tapered sweep augers removes thin, even layers of of dry grain as they travel around the bin. The patented taper is the secret of the Circu-Lators uncanny moisture control; allowing it to remove only the dry grain which lays just above the drying floor. The augers are constructed of a 1 1/4" diameter solid alloy steel shaft with 1/4" flighting. The notched cast iron wheel of the tapered sweep auger travels on a wear track as it rotates around the bin, remaining on the floor at all times.
