Large-capacity storage bins for 1000 tons of grain

Large-capacity storage bins for 1000 tons of grain

Zemedelska Technika 31(3): 143-155

The output of modern combine harvesters requires large volumes of grain to be dried or treated before storage, otherwise spoilage is unavoidable. As through-flow grain driers often cannot cope with this volume, a base-grid with a series of airing shafts was designed for a 1000 ton storage silo. Two fans able to supply 30 msuperscript 3 of air/(h.t) were used, the air flow through grain being 0.025 m/s minimum.
