GRAINSTORE ITEMS. 


 

This proved the worth of having the drier and particularly the dresser.

We started by cutting the headlands and poorer areas of beans, in case it becomes impossibly wet.

What was coming in from the combine was 23% - normally not a problem... unless it looks like this !

It saves a lot of shovelling later if you leave some clean dry in the pit and tip the dirty wet on top like this.

The beans themselves were only 19% and the rubbish was making it stick to the 60 degree slopes in the grainstore. 

It went into the drier and then through the dresser, before being fed back in with the wet stuff to assist in flow.

The following show the difference between what had been through and taken down to 16%, and the stuff it was being mixed with from the combine to go through again.

Dry beans land in the bottom of the pit while wet on the left gradually gets mixed in.

Note the difference in flow angle when compared with the handrail behind, which happens to be about the angle that wheat achieves at 17%.

Dried and cleaned beans going on top of wet in the drier header tank.

Rubbish coming out of the dresser.......

.......which ends up in the rubbish trailer.

It will go through again quickly in three days to take it to 14.5% moisture.

I think we would have really struggled without this equipment.

18m surface mounted Parkerfarm / Weightron / Bilanciai Heavy Duty Weighbridge, with three readout heads, one of which is also a printer. Requires 13" high steel or concrete ramps.

However with the press of a few buttons on the Vishay readout head it can be set to the nearest 2kg, as it was tested to, and so can be also used for pallets and packages.

(Current new price around 17.5K + 4K to 5K for delivery fitting and testing.  10,000.00 + VAT ex yard.)

 

Vertec VT7600 Continuous flow Grain Dryer. 3phase. Kero fired. Extractor fans and indoor dust cladding. (currently outside though).

Carrier HO9 bucket elevator - up to 60 tph. 20' long. Industrial.

One industrial chain and flight conveyor. 12" x 12" x 85ft. More box and chain available.

The system was designed for 60 tph, but ran mostly at 30 to 50 tph, except the intake and loading bay. The intake was nearly always at 60 tph, and the loading bay can be fed from two sources, so occasionally could do 120 tph, but you had to be awake when it came to shutting it off !  Lorries are loaded on the weighbridge so could be filled to whatever weight the drivers requested....to the nearest 20 kg.

Three 24' round outdoor grain storage bins. Marketed here by Massey Fergusson, but made by Ideal in the US. Here assembled seven bands high to hold around 220 tonnes of wheat each when flat bottomed, and fitted inside a building. However we have the other sections to to make them up to their original height, nine bands high, about 280 tonnes each. With ladders and access doors. 2000 each + VAT ex yard - dismantled and loaded.

Three 12" Astwell commercial unloading augers made to fit the above bins , with 5.5kw motors. Capable of well in excess of 60 tonnes per hour. These augers are made to handle difficult crops like peas and beans, so have 1/2" clearance between the auger flights and the tube. Flights are 5mm thick. Bearings on both ends. Flow is finely adjustable with large slides in the bin operated from outside by winding a handle via 20mm threaded bar. Seriously 'built'. Tripple SPZ belt drive in case bits of combine, etc, ended up in there jamming the auger - better to burn belt than motor. 

Three more 5.8m lengths of the same Astwell auger and tube, which was never made into augers due to not erecting the other three bins.

One Caterpillar Olympian GEP175 - 175 kva canopied generator. 175 kva Continuous @ 50 hz. Engine 8.7 litres 1306.9TG2 running @ 1500 rpm.  Length 4.9m.  Width 1.3m.  Height 1.88m. Weight approx 3 tonnes. Internal fuel tank holds 550 litres. ( enough for approx 13.5 hours at full power) . The grainstore was operated by this, and could use up to 99 kva with everything turned on, so it's never been entirely streched ! Never missed a beat. Was a hospital stand by generator  - fully canopied - silent clad.     only 2057 hours. 11,000.00 + VAT ex yard loaded.

It should be noted that everything in the grainstore was overbuilt and designed to be capable of being emergency stopped, and started again while full.
