SHAPE YOUR MIX
The largest challenge facing a TMR mixer is the ability to process forages with a variety of supplements such as salts and fine minerals. This process can prove to be time consuming and costly. Our patented Hurricane auger has been designed to produce better mixes by allowing forages to circulate faster through the mix, resulting in quicker processing and mixing times.
Penta Hurricane augers are equipped with patented cut outs that allow material to drop through the auger. The falling action compliments the regular motion of the ingredients being rotated throughout the tub. This combination of mixing actions has proven effective in producing more consistent mix.
Optional conveyors are configured to match the needs of your individual operations with a choice of either a Flip-Up or Dual configuration. Built for long life and dependability, each system is equipped with C188 chain, the heaviest cast chain in the industry. This chain is driven using a very powerful North American made hydraulic motor.
Flip-up conveyors are configured for either left or right hand delivery, allowing you to reach up and out to get the feed into bunks. Our dual conveyor allows you the freedom of left or right delivery. Our standard conveyor includes a stainless steel pan. This can be upgraded to include stainless pan and rails. We offer many available options to customize these conveyor systems to feed into a variety of bulks and feed alleys.
EYE OF THE STORM
One look at our Hurricane augers and you will see their strength and power. Critical to our auger design is durability. With high-intensity forces encountered in the initial stages of cutting, the metal blades of the auger are subjected to severe pressure as the turning motion begins and the feed ingredients are pushed upwards. From the 3/4” steel that is cold pressed into shape for our flighting, to the massive 3/8” thick tube, the flighting is expertly welded. Developed over years of testing and design, you can clearly see this is our best, most rugged and reliable auger yet.
The angle and diameter of the flighting are designed to work with the tub for the best mixing and processing of your ration. The pyramid shape of the Hurricane auger reduces pressure on the system’s moving parts, dispersing the forces through the body of the auger and prolonging the life of the blades. Our unique design ensures maximum blade contact with fibrous raw materials to make the cutting process rapid and complete. The high-wear stainless steel lead edge on the sweep has virtually no gap at the floor, dramatically reducing horsepower and providing excellent clean out. The bolt-on stainless steel plow blade keeps material from building up on the sides and turns material for even more mixing action.
As always, Penta continues to offer an alternative Auger for the processed feed. The Tornado auger is still one of the best in the industry that mixes processed feed consistently. The results in the shaker tests show a great mix without over processing feed to increase productivity.
Penta Augers are equipped with 3 different styles of deep serrated, heat-treated, tungsten carbide knives. Different knife styles and mounting options give you the flexibility to process any type of feed (hay, haylage, silage, straw, by products, corn, and soybean stalks), making Penta mixers the best option for all operations, delivering results no matter what your nutritional needs.
Our drives will process any type of feed, from hay to silage to corn and soybean stalks. Your PTO power is transferred to the drives through a two speed gear box for optimal mixing and a faster, more complete clean out. Our single auger mixers use the comer planetary gear box to drive the auger, backed by our standard 3 year warranty. Our Twin and Triple auger mixers use our heavy duty planetary gear box designed and built to our specifications and backed by a 5 Year Warranty.
The North American engineered gear box is able to be used in most mixer models. This box allows flexibility to run 1000rpm or 540rpm. The key is to reduce the heat buildup in the mixing process. The 2 part design allows heat to dissipate in the lower box before transferring to the planetary.
Our high-visibility oil reservoirs are located as close as possible to the gearboxes for the best performance, ease of use, and maintenance. The high quality reservoirs are crystal clear for the easiest visual checks on oil level. On our multi-auger mixers, the reservoirs are nestled between the augers for even greater visibility and protection. We use only full synthetic oil that will not break down during temperature fluctuations.
