Feed Conveying Equipment
There are many different types of equipment for conveying feeds from one part of a mill to another or from one piece of equipment to another. Some are designed to operate horizontally, some on a slope, others elevate the material vertically to a different level of the building. The requirement for elevators and conveyors will depend on how automated the mill is to be and how its plant is laid out.
The utmost use of such equipment is made in the modern animal feed mill (often using pneumatic systems) to minimize labour needs and to maximise the use of land by building multi-storey, rather than horizontally arranged plants.
