Grain unloading from flat-bottom tower silos



Grain unloading from flat-bottom tower silos



Zemedelska Technika 44(3): 89-93



This paper presents information on tests of a new concept for grain unloading from flat-bottom tower silos. The equipment consists of a screw conveyer with drive unit casing. The goal of the work was to design and test grain unloading from flat-bottom tower silos (of type VITKOVICE) that were adapted for grain treatment and storage. The performance of the screw conveyer was tested in relation to screw speed within the range 1.73-2.45 revolutions/s, and filling coefficient 0.3-0.6.
