Cleaning Unit Designed to Adapt to Conditions
There are rarely perfect conditions on a farm. That’s where we come in to help you get the best result for your situation.
Our mobile grain cleaning unit is designed to adapt to various cleaning situations. We have 3 onboard systems – electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic. We hydraulically-level the entire unit in each and every situation.
Whether you need grain cleaned from semi-truck to semi-truck, semi-truck to silo/grain bin, or any combination, GCI can adapt to your specific needs.
The entire machine is designed for a thorough cleanout to prevent contamination from source to source. We carry multiple sizes of leaf blowers and compressed air to ensure machine cleanliness between lots and between farms.
The Grain Cleaning Process
The grain cleaning process is started by moving the grain through a Bunting drawer magnet to remove tramp iron. We then scalp twice through two sizes of rotary scalpers. We then move the grain through the first 4 steps of a 10-step aspiration system. This is followed by length grading through 2 sizes of Premier shells.
We use round screens with an internal impeller system originally created by Hannaford Seed Master Services in Australia. We carry a full set of screens ranging in size from 4/64 to 6/64 and will gladly change screens at any time during the grain cleaning process to accommodate changes in seed size or your farming operation’s particular circumstances.
We Aspirate Three Ways
At the start of the process, where we use a stepped Kice grain aspirator and pull air through, and take contaminants out of the seed four times;
We pull air into our round screens, and dust and lightweight kernels out of the sample at two screening points.
We do another four-step aspiration at the conclusion of the process. We think this 10-step aspiration system makes us highly competitive with gravity table work.
The finished product is then weighed and electronically tallied. Screenings remain on the farm for livestock feed or sale.
The capacity of the G. C. I. cleaner ranges from 650 to 850 bushels/hour. With 60-pound test weight wheat, we typically operate between 800 and 825 bushels/hour. The capacity of the cleaner is directly related to a variety of factors such as grain size, test weight and amount and type of unwanted materials.
