Due to the multitude of our products and branches in which we are active, we have gained a lot of practical experience. We would like to share this knowledge.
Grain storage maintenance is essential to maintain grain quality and extend the life of a grain silo. The first few months of the new year are perfect for testing your grain silo and associated conveyor systems. This way, you won't face any nasty surprises in the summer and there will be enough time to carry out any repairs or replacements.
Dust emissions during ship loading are often a burden on the environment. Unfortunately, it is not possible to load ships completely dust-free. However, it is possible to minimise dust emissions by fairly simple means.
Aside from solutions for the transport and storing of grain, Jansen&Heuning also offeres machines to process grain into concentrates for poultry, cattle or pigs. These machines are suitable for livestock farmers who want to feed their own grain and as industrial machines for feed mills. But which machine is most suitable: the hammer mill, disc mill or grain crusher?
Silos are the best way to add value to your grain. Grain storage facilities ensure that harvested goods will preserve the highest quality and allow you to sell grain when the prices in the market will reach their heights.
A lot of dust is often released during the transport of goods and in particular bulk goods. Under occupational health and safety legislation, companies are obliged to do something about this. How to handle this?
By applying a complete plastic wear plate on the bottom of the chain conveyer, a long life of the bottom is obtained. The chain is supported over the entire surface and not only slides over the links of the chain, but also the carriers carry with it. It appears that the energy consumption is about 20% lower than with other systems
Sometimes grain has to be harvested while it is not dry out of necessity . In the Netherlands this often happens that we bring in grain with an average moisture content of around 18% and a temperature of 20 ° C.
In an outdoor silo with a stirring installaton it is possible to dry wet grain back to 15% in a controlled manner and store it for a long time. The stirring system in a grain silo consists of one or more vertical augers on a stirring arm. This arm hangs at the top of the silo and runs over a rail, which is mounted on the wall.
In Europe, we are realizing increasingly that it is wise to be careful with the cultivation of detached land. High-rise buildings in the form of brewed or technical installations such as concrete plants or storage and transhipment installations are increasingly being referred to as "horizon pollution". Are bucket elevators the solution?
