GRAIN HANDLING EQUIPMENT

McArthur Agriculture

McArthur Agriculture’s technical and practical experience with grain conveyors, grain augers and grain driers enables us to work with you to install a simple, practical and effective grain handling system that will save you valuable time during harvest as well as giving you the most for your money.

You may be looking to make a temporary wet storage area that the grain drier can then load from automatically, by using a trench intake conveyor. Or, alternatively you could use a belt and bucket elevator chain and flight conveyor system which can then be used to take dry grain into the grain store. A simple grain auger solution can assist you in all aspects of grain handling such as loading grain into a grain silo for longer storage.

Grain Conveyors

McArthur Agriculture offers a broad range of conveying equipment that is suitable for various applications. Machines are available in a wide range of widths, lengths and specifications, meaning we can provide the machine that best suits your requirements.

We supply high quality chains and flight grain conveyors with high grain handling capabilities, from handling a variety of granular products from grains, to sawdust and feed pellets. With little modification, the conveyors can also handle other products too.

Our full range of belt grain conveyors are suited to both agricultural and industrial applications. They are available in a wide range of capacities. Belt grain conveyors are ideal for filling large storage buildings and handling products with poor flowability.

Grain Elevators

As standard, our grain elevators are capable of handling cereals, oilseeds and pulses. With modification, they can handle biomass products, plastics and other free-flowing materials. We have a full range of belt and bucket elevators that can be specified to your individual requirements including bucket types, belt types, boot heights. So, whatever your application, we have a belt and bucket elevator to suit your needs.

Contact McArthur Agriculture today for information on how we can tailor our grain handling equipment, including grain conveyors, grain elevators and grain augers, to your specifications – creating a bespoke grain handling system that fits your needs.

Why Grain Cooling Is Important

Once grain is dry temperatures must be reduced as quickly as possible to avoid spoilage. The main causes of spoilage in stored grain are fungi, insects and mites. Temperatures above 15°C increase the risk of insect and mite populations developing.The HGCA Grain storage guide advises grain cooling should commence as soon as the grain comes into store.

GRANIFRIGOR™ grain cooling units can cool crop to below 12°C in a matter of days independently of weather conditions.

Complete Control

The GRANIFRIGOR™ grain cooling units refrigeration and dehumidification technology ensure that grain stored in a silo or on a ventilated floor can be cooled to below 12°C regardless of weather conditions.

Eliminate Risk

Prompt cooling protects against development of insects, microbes and fungi. Once the crop is cool it remains cool ensuring long term storage without quality losses.

Cost Effective

When a GRANIFRIGOR™ grain cooling unit is used no costly expenditure on fumigation or other chemical treatments is required, drying costs are reduced and respiratory.

Do You Meet HGCA Cooling Guidelines?

Grain Cooling Targets

Within 2 weeks Cool to below 15°C To prevent saw-toothed grain beetles completing their life cycle
Within 3-4 months Cool to below 12°C To prevent grain weevils completing their life cycle
By end-December Cool to below 5°C (except malting barley) To kill surviving insects and prevent mites increasing
