McArthur Case Study: D 24 T Clackmannanshire
Messrs McLaren & Sons
– Malting barley & wheat –
Messrs McLaren & Sons in Clackmannanshire constructed a new grain store which incorporated a Mecmar D 24 T mobile grain drier. The drier was located in an end bay with temporary wet storage directly behind, linked to the drier by a 7.5m trench conveyor. The drier unloads straight into the grain store, where the grain is then pushed up with a telehandler, or into a trailer.
This simple but fully automatic system delivers good daily productivity in tough drying conditions, while minimising time spent operating the drier and re-handling grain. In future the system can be extended to include handling in the dry store.
