Grain Transfer Specifications


Grain Transfer SystemThe DMC Trans-Fer® is a logical, timely combination of current technology and natural air flow providing a modern method of moving grain.

The systems are the perfect companion for any new or existing grain drying and storage facilities. Grain is moved through conveying tubes on a cushion of air, minimizing grain damage and maximizing efficiency and convenience. These systems are easy to install and maintain. Expansion is as easy as laying more pipe.

DMC offers four systems (Trans-Fer 700, 1200, 1700, and 2100) with 4", 5", and 6" piping. We now offer a wide range of capacities that will handle the requirements of most operations. The Trans-Fer system will supply the necessary capacity to keep up with today's harvesting equipment, minimizing grain damage while retaining the same high quality of grain harvested. The flexibility of these systems allow easy design and application for your present operation or for future expansion.

The DMC Trans-Fer® air systems are constructed with industrial quality, heavy duty cast iron rotary airlocks, positive displacement blower units and industrial type air cleaner filters. The standard control center includes amp-meter (for blower motor), adjustable time delay switch, allowing the system to clean tubes before shutdown and automatic pressure sensing shutdown. All motors are thermally protected. A dryer can be integrated to automatically run with fail safe features. This heavy duty industrial system will provide years of normal service and operation.


  The gentle, efficient, and convenient
way to move grain.

Trans-Fer® Systems are:

Systems are constructed with industrial quality, heavy duty, cast iron air locks, and positive displacement cast iron blower units with industrial air cleaners. These heavy duty industrial systems provide years of normal service.

Choice of 4", 5", & 6" systems and 10 hp to 75 hp blower motor means you can tailor a system to your capacity requirements. Dual motor systems are available in 4" and 5" systems. This allows 20 hp and 30 hp systems to operate where only single phase power is available. Trans-Fer systems work well in simple bin layouts and work well in complex operations where legs and augers just won't work. As your operation grows, expansion is as easy as laying more pipe.

Control Center includes amp-meter for blower motor, adjustable timer delay switch, allowing the system to clean tubes before shut down and automatic pressure sensing shut down. A dryer can be integrated to automatically run with fail safe features.

Change bins on the ground. Just move a short hose to the next tube or utilize a CA-Select™ distributor valve.

Blower, air lock and motors come on two convenient preassembled skids. Tubing and accessories are designed for easy and efficient installation.

No moving heavy augers during busy times or servicing belts and motors high up in the air. System maintenance of all moving parts is done on the ground.

  Rotary Airlock
The rotary airlock accurately feeds the grain into the system by "locking" pressurized air in the system, avoiding air loss which can reduce capacity. The airlock is constructed of heavy duty cast iron for years of normal service in any operation and features a built-in shear protector to prevent grain damage.
  Automatic Control Center
The Automatic Control Center includes start and stop buttons for rotary airlock and blower unit; amp-meter for the motor; and an adjustable "time delay" switch, allowing the system additional time to clear the tubes before shutdown. The control box is fabricated out of brushed aluminum components and assembled to be equivalent to a Nema 4 enclosure. All controls are mounted "out of the weather" behind the door with a sealed window for control status visibility.

Postive Displacement Blower
The industrial type air cleaner filters clean air into the blower to insure a long life of quality service; the Positive Displacement blower unit is powered by an electric motor that easily transfers your grain into storage. Dual motor systems are available.
