Thus, in this issue you will have an opportunity to know what Chesne Grain-Collecting has become after the expansion of its capacities.
Let’s look at all positions and remind what was done.
In this issue you will know about:
The results of flat-bottom and cone-shaped bottom silo bins’ construction;
Grain dryer’s capacities increase;
The second railway track building;
The second automated intake point;
The differences “before and after” at Chesne Grain-Collecting Station can be traced starting from the procedure of sampling. This year one more pneumatic sampling unit of Promservice Company production was installedat the elevator. It is already in operation and has helped the elevator to speed up the intake of early grains. The second sampling unit was commissioned on 20 July – exactly at the moment when main harvest of early grains started. It helped to double the intake capacities.
We were took 110-120 tons of grain per hour earlier, and now the intake capacity is 200-240 tons per hour. During the period of time required to handle one truck last year we are able to handle two grain trucks this year. The process of truck-trailers handling is also much faster now. Earlier we took samples from the truck body first, then the truck moved forward and we took samples from the trailer. Now we are able to do this simultaneously, — Oleg Zlatov tells.
