The silos in which it is stored and dried
Dry and clean grain can be stored for many years. Very often, the first choice is to dry production in the field because the costs are low or not at all. There are many disadvantages of this process, especially the uncertainty of weather conditions.
The primary objective of storage and drying of grain is the targeted control of grain temperature and humidity and the preservation or improvement of the quality of the harvested production. There are many ways to store grains, and you need to select a device that matches the situation. The status of the grain should be checked regularly. Grain is a valuable commodity and the right decision saves money and time.
US MFS grain silos are made of corrugated galvanized sheet metal, and their strength and flexibility make it possible to build the largest volumes up to a capacity of 20,000 tons per silo. They have the strongest roof in this industry to keep the snow deposits, but also the massive road to power. The silos may have a cello floor or a partial aeration system of concrete aeration channels in the base plate. In the upper part, the humid air is removed both passively, the exhausts on the roof and, on the other, actively, roof exhaust fans. The removal of production can be simplified by lateral outflows located on the silos at the underpass of the lorries.
The MFS Silo shaft meets all the requirements for modern harvest management and organization.
We can store and dry according to the size of the silos, up to 600 tons of grain at a time. It is a galvanized galvanized silo with a perforated cello floor under which hot or cold air blowers are fired with a propane burner or a natural gas burner. Drying uses warmer air at lower temperatures (40-75 ° C), making it very convenient to use waste heat from a biogas plant to achieve the most economical efficiency without burning fossil fuels.
Aeration with adequate air pressure prolongs storage and stops pest and microorganisms. A mixing system with vertical screws contributes to the increase of air flow (up to 30%). Saturated air with water is removed at the top of the exhausts on the roof. Weed impurities can cause moisture to be moistened, and hence self-heating due to the organic activity of grains and their microflora. Closeness of grain is closely related to self-heating. The grain tends to compact. The mixer mixes the grain throughout the room, prevents the formation of crust and hot spots, loosens the grain, and reduces static pressure. The result is a more uniform moisture content in all the power.
