Serving the feed, grain & fertilizer industries since 1970
Since 1970, Minic Industries Ltd. has been serving the grain & feed industries, developing a reliable line of material-handling equipment and accessories.
In 1992, Minic Industries became part of the Rancan Group of Companies, an umbrella corporation that also includes Rancan Fertilizer Systems, Handy Hitch Manufacturing and Ranchers Welding.
Joining the Group allowed Minic Industries to expand their portfolio of available products and match the capacities that the industry required. By including stainless steel equipment for the fertilizer industry, as well as the addition of the ‘Kip Kelly’ bucket elevator and drag conveyor line, Minic has upgraded and refreshed the engineering and manufacturing process by becoming an industry leader.
Each division of the Rancan Group takes pride in understanding, evaluating and resolving custom design challenges quickly and effectively. The results are economical and quality built products, that will last for years, continuing to satisfy and grow our trusted and loyal customers in North America and abroad.
Minic Industries manufactures a full line of agricultural and industrial bucket eleveators, ranging in size from 300 bushels to 30,000 bushels per hour. With pulley diameters from 5-1/4” to 48” there is bound to be one to suit your needs. A wide range of styles and sizes of buckets – from steel, polyethylene, nylon and urethane, mounted on belt or steel chain. Besides the standard sizes available, Minic Industries will custom design the elevator to suit the specific product and application. We excel in providing quick solutions for the customer’s needs.
Minic Industries manufactures both stainless steel and carbon steel screw conveyors, in sizes from 4” to 24” diameters. Single, twin and multiple (live bin bottom) conveyors have been supplied. Each enquiry goes through a meticulous procedure of: evaluating the product being handled, its characteristics, and the application, to select the optimum components for the project. Horizontal, inclined, vertical – blend augers to screw feeders – you name it … we can supply it.
Minic Industries manufactures two styles of distributors. The standard unit offers positive indexing of the internal spout into the directional discharge spout, preventing cross-contamination – these units are designed for the grain, feed & seed industries. The special “fertilizer distributors” also have indexing capability. The tolerances allow the units to work in the extremely harsh environments – these units are developed for the fertilizer and chemical industries. Manual, electric, carbon steel and stainless steel versions are also available.
Drag Chain Conveyors
When it comes to drag chain conveyors, the variety of sizes available is limitless. Sizes range from 8” wide x 10” deep to 24” x 30” deep and everywhere in between. Minic Industries will design and fabricate to the specified needs. Formed trough, bolted bottom, lined, round bottom, bend sections and en-masse designs are available. Carbon steel chain, hardened and stainless steel chain are also available.
Belt Conveyors are still the most economical method of transporting bulk materials at high capacity and over great distances with a minimum of power. Concentrating mainly on handling denser products, we specialize in stainless steel construction with carrying and return rollers. Available in totally enclosed housings for dust control; as well, intermediate discharges are accomplished with belt trippers.
