20/06/2016: The pioneering Hutchinson Grain Pump® systems

Grain Pumps have proven to be excellent long life systems. The largest members in the Global Industries’ Grain Pump® family are the Grain Pump® Loop and Double Run Systems, which are designed and manufactured by Hutchinson, a Division of Global Industries, Inc, located in Clay Centre, KS-USA

In any strong family structure, each member of the family has a unique and important role to play. These different roles typically complement and assist each other, and when they all work together something very special usually happens.

That’s exactly what takes place with the Global Industries Grain Pump® conveyor family from Hutchinson. The Grain Pump® conveyors can be used in many different ways, and operations can vary significantly from installation to installation…just like members of a family.

The Hutchinson Grain Pump® systems were the first of their kind in the industry, and have served grain market customers around the world for many years. But Global Industries understands the best way to maintain leadership in any industry is through ongoing relationships and close interaction with customers. As a result, they continue to work as a team with customers to not only improve existing grain handling products… but in the development of new and innovative systems to meet ever-changing market and customer needs.

Like all Global Industries’ divisions, Hutchinson’s customer communications is a two-way improvement process. New systems are first demonstrated and explained to customers. In response, customers provide Global Industries with valuable feedback and changes they think could make the systems better, more cost-effective and easy to operate and maintain. Many of those comments are then incorporated into the systems’ final design.

Usually, new facilities require Hutchinson to design new members of the Grain Pump® Loop system or the Grain Pump® Double Run family. But before these new systems are ever released, they must first be thoroughly tested and evaluated by Hutchinson engineers at Global Industries’ state-of-the-art Research & Development Center in Grand Island, NE-USA.

A good example of this collaborative process is the facility developed in conjunction with AAFSA (Agro Acopio Fertil SA) in Durazno, Uruguay.
