Georgia Poultry Offers Trouble-Free Poultry Control Pan

GLOBAL - At one time or another, almost every poultry grower has walked into a house and found empty pans caused by a malfunctioning control pan. These unplanned feed outages cause broiler performance to suffer and potential lost revenue at close out, writes Georgia Poultry's Scott Bauck.

Control pans using mechanical paddle switches are subject to failure when fine feed dust packs in behind the paddle. When the fabric diaphragm that protects the switch becomes torn, this can happen even more frequently.

The new G-Logic Control Pan utilizes a different type of switch to prevent this kind of feed outage from occurring. The G-Logic Sensor replaces mechanical switches with the most accurate solid state technology available today. It electronically detects when the feed level fills the control pan and shuts the feed line motor off. After the level drops and calls for the feed line to start, a preset 60-second delay prevents short-cycling to improve motor life.

The G-Logic sensor has no moving parts to wear out, no adjustment screws and no fabric diaphragms to replace. Unlike open mechanical button switches, the sensor is sealed from harsh poultry house environments.

The G-Logic control pan comes complete with a 10′ pigtail cord and 18″ cord protector. It’s an 115/230 volt unit with an 8-spoke grill. It’s available at any Georgia Poultry, Eastern Shore or Hog Slat store near you. Go online at www.gapoultry.com or call 800-949-4647.
