Equipment Maintenance – Flat Chain Feeders

Preventative maintenance insures the longevity of equipment in a poultry house. There’re a few things to keep in mind when servicing equipment.

Always disconnect electricity before servicing equipment. Check chain tension regularly, especially when the system is new and being broken in, and adjust the tension accordingly. After about the first three weeks, check the line for caterpillaring every week. While examining the chain tension, also be sure to exam the trough levelness. Unlevel lines will create unnecessary wear and tear on the equipment. Use this checklist as a guideline to care for your flat chain feeders.
