Post-harvest treatment of grains
Receipt - the harvested product is transported into bins by means of a conveyor. This ensures continuous harvesting of crops and storage before post-harvest treatment. Pre-cleaning - removal of impurities, broken grains, weed seeds, etc. The maximum humidity of pre-cleaned grain intended for storage must be ≤ 15 %. Drying - a process with high energy and technology demands. The process may be repeated several times depending on the grain humidity. Aeration - is used in the case of lower humidity of the harvested grain (up to 18 %). This process proceeds using gratings with fans allowing aeration of the whole grain mass.
