To meet the variety of small, medium and large sized bulk ingredient handling and processing requirements, Grain Tech weigh-mix systems offer bulk handling installations with accompanying batching facilities to cover a wide range, from one tonne capacity through to 30 tonne plus and are ideal for either interior storage or exterior storage requirements.

The bulk storage units themselves are of either the standard 1 tonne bulk bag or ABS Trevira flexible silos for interior storage or the optionally designed panel bolt together aluminium or stainless-steel bulk storage silo units with the respective sizes and capacities being provided to suit the particular requirements for both internal and external applications. 

“Conveying and batch weighing systems are designed to optimise the mixer load cycles, with equipment incorporated having been fully proven within many operating systems to enable very high levels of accuracy to be maintained consistently with absolute reliability of the ingredient batched weight.”

Various levels of automation may be built into each individual system to match the sequencing and load requirements says Grain Tech. The total control system can be readily extended to control liquid addition by weight and temperature to give an integrated dry/wet ingredient batching system where required.
