What is a Flow Retarder?:

Inline flow retarders are used to slow the flow of grain in any grain system. Many flow retarders that exist in the market today include baffles that consist of thick plates. The purpose of these baffles is to establish a cushion for the grain which, in theory, should minimize the risk of grain damage. What the market has learned over the years is that this is not the case, but rather flow retarders in the market today can actually create more damage to the grain.

Benefits of an LCDM Flow Retarder:

LCDM manufactures both angled and vertical retarders which are used on long spout runs. Our flow retarder has two main features: a “W” style baffle to collect grain and an adjustable baffle for self-cleaning. The adjustability of the baffle allows you to customize the flow retarder to your needs. For example, if you’re looking to achieve maximum clean-out, you can open the baffles all the way. Conversely, if attaining optimum grain cushioning is your objective, you can easily close the baffles.

LCDM offers two types of flow retarders:

Inline Flow Retarders (for vertical spout runs) and Welded Sleeve (for longer angled spout runs). LCDM Flow Retarders are unique from others in the industry because they actually cushion the grain. Existing flow retarders in the market have thick baffles that do not create a cushion for the grain which can lead to grain damage. Our grain flow retarders will give you the flexibility to allow for self-cleaning in full-flow applications, as well as for complete flow restriction in low-flow applications where maximizing grain quality is paramount.

Pairing an LCDM Flow Retarder With the DBAR Cushion Box:

Grain Spreaders for Higher Grain Quality:

To help you build a reliable grain flow system, LCDM sells only the best grain spreaders for higher grain quality. These devices evenly distribute grain into your grain bin for consistent flow and air drying. We specialize in selling gravity grain spreaders — an option suitable for farms of many kinds.

At LCDM, we partner with our customers to help them achieve the highest quality grain possible. Our gravity spreaders improve your grain handling process to promote better results. We provide custom solutions involving product design, system configuration and engineering to meet your needs. Learn more about our gravity spreaders and how you can use them to enhance your grain handling system.

What Is a Gravity Grain Spreader?:

A gravity grain spreader uses gravity to distribute grain in a grain bin. It features a unique shape that causes the grain to rotate as it deposits into your bin. This rotation divides the grain, separating fines and light material from the rest of the flowing mass. With a gravity grain spreader, you can make your grain handling more consistent for improved results.

Discover the benefits of using a gravity spreader:

Consistent Grain Flow:

Grain spreaders allow for an even flow of grain into your grain bin. Without a spreader, grain tends to form a “core” in the center consisting of fines. When this happens, it makes grains of similar sizes more likely to pack together. Lighter grains and foreign material slide to the edge of the bin. A gravity grain bin spreader creates an even consistency throughout the grain bin. As a result, grain can flow more freely during unloading.

Freer Airflow:

When grain has an uneven consistency, it can make airflow inconsistent. Areas with tightly packed grain receive less of the air needed for the drying process. Meanwhile, looser areas might get too much air. If your grain bin forms a core of fines, you have to draw it off, creating potential cavities. With a spreader, your grain has a lower risk of air blockage, exposing it to the right airflow.

Uniform Drying:

Proper drying lets your grain last longer and hold up to tougher conditions. Since a grain spreader helps you achieve better airflow, it allows for faster drying times and consistent results. If you use heat in your drying process, an even grain flow helps you heat the grain evenly. By speeding up drying times and providing consistent results, a spreader reduces the amount of electricity your dryer needs to use.

Higher Grain Quality:

With even grain flow, airflow and grain drying, your product quality will improve. You will get more uniform results from your grain handling system for a product that offers better quality, taste and nutrition. Our team can help you build the right grain drying system, including components like the spreader. We will partner with you to find solutions that fit your workflow.

Gravity vs. Electric Grain Bin Spreaders:

Some systems use electric grain bin spreaders as part of their handling systems. These motorized spreaders use moving blades to evenly deposit grain into a bin. Gravity and electric spreaders each have their advantages in grain handling systems.

At LCDM, we offer gravity spreaders because of their ease of use, versatility and simplicity. A gravity grain spreader has these advantages over an electric model:

Lower Maintenance:

Since this type of spreader uses gravity to work, it does not need a motor or other electrical parts. As a result, gravity spreaders require less maintenance than motorized models. With fewer moving parts, a gravity spreader makes it easier for you to identify where it may need repairs during an issue.

Fully Customizable:

A gravity spreader’s design focuses on its structure, making it customizable for a variety of systems. With no motor, it provides more flexibility in tight or unconventionally shaped spaces. We can adjust gravity spreader parts to work with the grain handling system you have in mind.


Gravity spreaders reduce electricity costs by working without an electrical connection. They operate by themselves, letting the owner focus on the electricity used for dryers and other machines.

Storing excessively moist, clumped or frozen grain can prevent proper product flow when blockages cover the auger in a grain bin. A plugged auger is a nuisance and results in delays and additional costs when you must stop work to unplug it. Fixing the problem by going inside the bin presents a real danger in grain operations, as it can result in entrapment, injury or death.

The Grain Bin Sump Saver is a machinery solution that breaks up frozen or clumped grain for increased efficiency and safer grain flow. It preserves your economic resources by clearing blockages quickly without safety risks. The Sump Saver unit works inside the grain bin to slice and eliminate clumps rapidly while you remain safe outside the container.

Benefits of a Sump Saver for Safe Grain Handling:

When there is an issue in your grain bin, it’s more than an annoyance — it’s a risk to human safety. If the grain is in columns along the walls, they can collapse and create a grain avalanche, trapping anyone inside. Walking on the surface is also dangerous because of the possibility of bridging — when the top layer of grain has created a thin crust. This bridge will give away under even minimal weight, causing the person to fall inside.

Whether the grain moving equipment is on or off, these situations may result in serious injuries or death.

The Sump Saver helps you safely unplug the grain bin sump without leaving your tractor or stepping inside the bin. The Sump Saver Mighty Mini model includes various benefits and safety features like:

  • A powerful motor: The hydraulic motor eliminates clumps with up to 6,000 pounds of torque.
  • Sharp, durable fingers: Half-inch clearing fingers are engineered to slice through blockages without bending.
  • Multi-directional rotation: Rotating clearing fingers operate forward and reverse from outside the bin.
  • Sturdy support: The heavy-duty steel frame supports the central axis of the clearing fingers as they work.
  • Robust hydraulics: The hydraulic unit handles clumps as they approach the grain bin sump.
  • Maximum safety: Exterior hydraulic hoses restore grain flow safely without the operator entering the bin.
  • Improved efficiency: The functionality allows operators to work through an obstruction without exiting their tractors, increasing efficiency.

Mighty Mini Sump Saver Installation:

Install the Sump Saver Mighty Mini unit in the most effective position next to an above-floor auger mouth or over the bin auger intake on the floor. Attached to the machine are hydraulic hoses lying on the bin floor and connecting to a fitting on the bin side. When there is a free-flow issue with the grain, operators can quickly join the exterior hoses to the tractor’s hydraulics. You can stop operating the Sump Saver once you see grain flowing freely without damaged areas.

Installation is fast and easy, requiring no complex tools.

The Sump Saver is a beneficial choice because it saves time and money and keeps your operations safer since you do not need to go inside the bin. Enforce essential grain handling safety standards and break up blockages in a matter of seconds so you can get back to work safer and sooner.

Sump Saver Portable Power Packs:

The Sump Saver offers two power pack options for your convenience, including a gas-driven pump or a three-phase electric pump. These packs provide an affordable solution to multi-location operations without tractors or skid steers to power the units at each site. Sump Saver power packs offer easy transport and are chargeable with food-grade oil.

Improving Auger Safety:

New technology like the Sump Saver continues to improve safety throughout the agricultural industry. As farms around the country become more technologically advanced, the demand for increased output and more efficient operation continues to grow. Industry innovations and leading product distributors like LCDM help operations increase yields while creating a safer operating environment for workers and equipment.

Augers pose one of the most significant hazards in any grain-related operation. With the ability to operate from the safety and comfort of a tractor seat, the Sump Saver works in forward or reverse directions to break up the clog without employees stepping foot in the grain bin. Besides increasing safety, the sump saver improves your operation and cost efficiency by eliminating unnecessary hours of unplugging the auger and manually unclogging the container.

You need the proper technology to keep operations in order when you manage an industrial environment. If you’re looking for a way to create a happier, more efficient workplace, why not try a dust control system from LCDM? We offer Dust Suppression Hoppers, which are a Dust Supression System designed to keep harmful dust production to a minimum while offering the protection you need to do your best every day.

What Is a Dust Suppression System?

The dust reduction products are designed to surpass conventional loading equipment in terms of safety, productivity and longevity. A Dust Suppression Hopper acts as a grain loading spout that can be easily installed under a feed point. As the Dust Suppression Hopper is filled, it removes the air from the product and speeds up loading times.

These systems can drop dry goods into almost any receptacle, including trucks, bags, storage containers, railway cars and more. Thanks to an efficient transportation process, the dustless loading spouts can eliminate the majority of dust for some of the biggest loading applications.

Benefits of Dust Suppression:

Dust suppression systems from LCDM can make your life and the lives of your team members much easier. In the long run, these systems will help enhance your daily routines while making each loading process a more pleasant experience for everyone involved. Some of the benefits offered by a Dust Suppression Hopper include:

  • Improved safety: We understand how important safety is to your organization. What makes dust such a major hazard is that too much of it in the workplace can increase the possibility of a fire or explosion. Meanwhile, dust also reduces overall visibility in the environment and increases the likelihood of other accidents. Why leave these risks up to chance when you have the power to protect operators with dust control and loading systems? Dust suppression equipment will put your mind at ease and make everyone feel safer.
  • Increased profit: Up-front cost is only a small factor to consider when you upgrade to new technology. What truly matters is what your organization stands to gain down the road. Thanks to the improved safety and efficiency offered by our dustless loading spouts, you’ll be able to reduce downtime and product losses as a result of inconsistencies or accidents. Less dust also equals less time and money required for cleaning and maintenance.
  • Environment: Did you know that dust produced by industrial operations is a major cause of air pollution and environmental hazards? In today’s world, it’s more crucial than ever to find new ways of protecting the environment. By producing less dust, you’ll preserve air quality and ensure you’re doing your part to take care of the planet and your community!

Dust Suppression Hopper Versus the Competition:

If you’re looking for a reliable dust control system, how do you decide between a dust suppression hopper system and a retractable bellow or telescopic bellow? Let’s see how Dust Suppression Hoppers measure up against the competition.

Telescopic bellows are older than DSH systems and have long been offering flexible, effective dust release capabilities. Using an enclosed system, these machines can quickly move material to the proper target containment while removing most of the dust. The greatest benefit of retractable bellows is their flexibility, which allows them to work with a variety of industries and specific applications. On the other hand, these dust control machines also have several drawbacks, including:

  • -Complex dust release procedures
  • -Inefficient operational controls
  • -Heavy maintenance and cleaning needs

All these factors can slow down processes and lead to profit losses. While telescopic bellows provide respectable dust control, a Dust Suppression Hopper is the superior choice for several reasons.

Unlike conventional loading equipment, Dust Suppression Hoppers are placed right under a feed point and directly above the destination. Because all the internal components are stationary and there are no extra wires or electrical parts to worry about, DSH systems are much easier to manage than retractable bellows. In addition, the equipment forces the air out of the product while most of the dust is removed and placed inside the material column.

By the end of each day, a Dust Suppression Hopper will leave you with all your products in their proper places and with much less dust cluttering up the area. This is what allows our grain loading spout equipment to stay ahead of the competition and provide safer, smarter dust control.

Why Choose LCDM for Dustless Loading:

We know you’re on a tight schedule, so we make it our mission to keep our service timely and reliable. When you work with LCDM, you can rest assured that you’ll receive a safe, high-quality product.
