Since 1954, Walinga has designed a range of pneumatic conveying equipment for the grain industry. Recently, the company added the Smart-Flo™ variable frequency drive (VFD) system to its Ultra-Veyor pneumatic conveyor system.
According to Technical Sales Representative Doug Termeer, “The Smart-Flo sensor monitors how quickly grain goes through the system, so the blower speeds up or slows down automatically, depending on how far the grain is being blown.”
“The Smart-Flo variable frequency drive system optimizes performance,” says Termeer, “while reducing energy costs and bulk damage. We manufacture our own blowers and airlocks, so we’re a complete conveyor system provider. We offer multiple blower sizes, so customers can run at lower speeds to keep noise low.”
• Each unit is customized per customer specification, so components are sized for the distances involved in moving grain.
• Available with larger size blowers that can operate at lower speeds to reduce noise.
• Smart-Flo VFD systems adjust flow speed automatically, based on the volume of grain.
• Completely self-contained system that can be run independent of an input system such as a grain dryer.
