VDL Agrotech improves pig feed transport chain quality

Dutch livestock equipment manufacturer VDL Agrotech has launched a novel type of feed transport chain.

The chains have been developed for the company's VDL500 en VDL600 tube feeding systems - and include a novel disc design. The disc reduces resistance and allows longer system lengths. In addition, the shape and choice of these nylon discs reduce wearing.

In comparison to conventional products, the new system has a 50% stronger disc to chain fixation. Moreover, the chain's surface is hardened for optimum performance.

Last but not least, less feed is being unnecessarily transported around – and feed is better released due to larger openings in the discs.
