Hydro Series Feeders


Hydro-Series Feeders

With feed cost soaring, it only makes sense to invest in the best feeders available to keep feed waste to a minimum. AP offers HydroMat and HydroTube feeders in all stainless steel construction, and the ‘combo’ feeders, which provide excellent feed efficiency and conversion and the added benefit of dramatic water savings to help lower the cost of effluent disposal.

AP Combo Feeders combine the superior corrosion resistance and cleaning characteristics of 304 stainless steel with the rugged durability of powder coated solid rod construction.

Y-Drops

Y-drops are available for all models of HydroTube and double hopper HydroMat feeders. These Y-drops prevent feed spills and provide a clean installation with a single feed line drop.

 


 

Feed Saver

HydroMat and HydroTube feeder troughs feature a feed saver lip to prevent feed from being raked out of the feeder.

 


 

Combo Feeder Gates

Feeder gates are constructed of 1/2″ solid steel rods inserted through and welded to a 3/16″ thick 304 stainless steel bottom rail to provide the heaviest feeder gate in the industry. After welding, feeder gates are protected with a durable baked on powder coat finish. Water pipes and valves are easily removed for service and are not used as a structural part of the gate frame.

Wean to finish models feature narrowed gate rod spacing, feed dams to prevent slurry buildup in water cups and an adjustable drip nipple to help newly weaned pigs locate water.

 


 

Spinner

HydroMat and HydroTube feeders are equipped with a stainless steel agitator that is easily moved by even newly weaned pigs. The spinner limits the need for feeder adjustment and keeps high fat feeds flowing through the feeder.

 


 

Cups & Valves

HydroMat and HydroTube Combo feeeders feature premium quality AquaGlobe valves and smooth easy to clean water pans. Water pipes and valves can be easily removed for service.

 


 

All Stainless Steel Construction

HydroMat and HydroTube feeders are also available with all stainless steel construction.

 


 

HydroMat

HydroMat Feeders

AP’s HydroMat Feeders are equipped with one or two durable plastic hoppers which each provide 90 lbs. of feed storage and easy access for hand feeding bagged starter feeds.

HydroMat feeders are available in all stainless steel construction or the Combo design. Combo feeders combine the superior corrosion resistence and cleaning characteristics of 304 stainless steek with the rugged durability of powder coated solid rod construction.

 


 

HydroMat Adjuster

HydroMat feeders are equipped with a convenient indexed adjustment system that provides exact control of feed flow.

 

 

 

 

HydroTube

HydroTube Feeders
AP’s HydroTube Feeders are offered in two different lengths and with 2 or 3 water cups. The 4″ feed tubes provide 70% more feed storage than the competitor’s 3″ tubes. This additional capacity greatly decreases the number of feed system run cycles required to keep the feeders filled. The feed tubes are available in either white or clear PVC extruded in our factory from specially formulated resin with impact modifiers to prevent feed tube breakage.

HydroTube feeders are available in all stainless steel comstruction or the Combo design. Combo feeders combine the superior corrosion resistence and cleaning characteristics of 304 stainless steek with the rugged durability of powder coated solid rod construction.


 

HydroTube Adjuster

HydroTube feeders feature an easy-to-operate screw-type adjuster crank for precise control of feed flow. Feed flow can be precisely adjusted in increments of 1/32″ up to a 2″ maximum. A convenient indicator gives the actual opening between the feeder pan and the tube outlet.

 


 

Feed Hopper

Optional 20 lb. feed hoppers increase storage capacity and allow for hand feeding of starter feeds in wean to finish applications.

 


 

14Feed Tube

HydroTube’s 4″ feed tubes provide 70% more feed holding capacity than the competitor’s 3″ feed tubes. More holding capacity means fewer fill system run cycles. Optional clear tubing allows you to confirm at a glance that the feeding system is functioning correctly.
