Development of Khrystynivske Grain-Collecting Station’s capacities was finished in August. Unlike Chesne and Voronovytske-Grain Collecting Stations, there was much more work to be done, that’s why the period of construction was also a bit longer. One more fully functional grain silo bin with onsite storage capacity of 60 thousand tons was added at the elevator.
6 silo bins with onsite storage capacity of 10 thousand tons each were assembled. Construction of grain dryer is finished and whole site improvements are done. In general, the elevator is ready for take corn crop at its new capacities, — Olekisy Tsurkan, Director of Grain Elevators Division of Alebor Group reported.
In this issue we’ll tell you about:
Finishing of flat-bottom silos’ mounting;
Completion of grain dryer’s construction;
Automated intake point;
6 flat-bottom silo bins 27.5 m in diameter of KMZ Industries production were added at Khrystynivske Grain-Collecting Station this year. Storage capacity of each silo bin is 10 thousand tons for wheat.
Silo bins are 100% assembled. The only thing left is to run them in according to specially designed technology.
New silo been should be loaded with grain gradually. Initially 1/3 of the total storage capacity volume should be loaded and then unloaded. After that silo bin should be loaded up to a half of its total storage volume and then unloaded again. And only for the third time silo bin should be wholly loaded with grain. We did not have an opportunity to make such a trial run as far we had not enough amount of grain yet. We are waiting for harvesting of late maturity grain crops, — Oleksiy Tsurkan says.
