Rigid Augers and FLEX-AUGER


The FLEX-AUGER® System’s simple, high-quality, fully-enclosed auger moves feed up, down, on-the-level, or around corners. The tubing is made of specially-compounded PVC, which makes it resistant to ultraviolet light and resistant to wear. For some abrasive free-flowing feeds like those used in egg production, fill systems with steel tubing are available. The FLEX-AUGER® Feed Delivery System is available in a variety of capacities for use in a wide variety of feeding applications.

A direct drive unit (motor and gearhead) rotates the coreless auger. A variety of hopper level and drop tube switches are available to regulate feed delivery. Optional time clock and programmable controls are also available.

Feeders and Feeder Lines

REVOLUTIONBroilerFeeder_size6001_size600In the 1950s, Chore-Time dared to offer broiler producers an innovative choice – the round pan feeder – as a better alternative to chain feeders. It turned out to be the right choice because pans are now the industry standard. As an industry leader, Chore-Time now offers a wide choice of many different pan feeders.

Air Mixers

The ELITURBO® is an air mixer that can vertically and horizontally even out the temperature and humidity in large environments and reduce energy cost needed for their heating by up to 30%.

ELITURBO® employs a special patented impeller that generates the complete mixing of the air currents of the environment.  Unlike other fans, the ELITURBO®, does not direct the air flow downwards and in concentrated  narrow ranges, but distributes the air in a radial manner.

Tunnel Doors


Chore-Time’s tunnel doors generate cyclonic air movement as incoming cold air is directed away from the birds until it has mixed with house air. This gentle turbulence prevents dead zones from forming at the side and end walls. The composite structure of the doors is eight times more insulating than a curtain and the wall-mounted soft-seals compress to create a tight seal even in cold temperatures.

Air Inlets

CT-2097-201203CurvedInlet.inddChore-Time’s curved air inlets maintain greater air velocity delivering 70% more air than conventional inlets. Incoming air is directed upwards towards the center of the house drawing building air from the sides of the house. The greater velocity from the curved louvers reduces the number of inlets needed by half!
The solid, all plastic doors will not rust and corrode and the opening has cushioned top and sides to seal against air leakage.
TopJetAtticInlet_V2V0526_size600_1__size600 Chore-Time’s Gravity-Operated Topjet Attic Inlet supplements sidewall inlets to provide an automatic supply of tempered air during the early stages of minimum ventilation.
