Installation of a levelling or travelling conveyor gives optimum use of available storage volume by providing the ability to level fill a store without surcharge loading. Best suited for ventilation, or on floor drying, as the grain is not compacted by pushing it up with a loader and the airflow is even, due to the level fill.
A levelling or travelling conveyor will maximise grain store capacity whilst minimising the labour required. They are suspended on carriages and beams at each end of a grain store and are manually pushed or winched along the length of a building. Systems can be fully automated.
- These conveyors have an open bottom to allow grain to fill the building starting at one end and building up to the base of the conveyor.
- Fill a grain store with a completely level uncompact layer of grain ideal for under floor ventilation and drying.
- Remove the need for a loader and grain pusher to fill the store to its optimum.
- These conveyors do not have a fully open bottom. They have individual outlets instead to fill bins or bunkers, in a particular building when there is little headroom.
- They can also be used to fill floor stores with peaked fill when surcharging storage.
