Building

The floor store filled via a belt conveyor which then feeds a travelling conveyor to fill segregated bunkers within a store.

Segmented stores

Two mechanical reception pits were used to provide a large wet storage area without the need for additional storage hoppers. This provides a simple means of tipping up the trailers without waiting for the hopper to empty and also saves the expense of a wet storage bin. 

Reception Pits

The foor store is divided into a number of separate bunkers. To fll these there is a PERRY 300mm wide 40 tph roller trough belt conveyor with a PERRY travelling conveyor with motorised beam trollies underneath.

The belt conveyor tripper is moved into position using a remote control handset so the operator can see where the tripper is positioned. The travelling conveyor has sensors fitted so when the tripper moves, the conveyor moves along the store as well. The conveyor has a number of intermediate outlets that can be opened to suit the correct bunker.

This system minimises the amount of labour necessary to fill the store during harvest and save money year after year.
