German aspirators can handle up to 60t/hour

WILTS-based TH White Installation now distributes a range of grain aspirators, pre-cleaners and graders from German manufacturer Schmidt Ag.

The TAS 152A-2 Twin Aspiration Cleaner is designed to handle wheat, maize, OSR and barley and promises throughputs of up to 60t/hour, says the company.

Cleaning and grading is achieved by a preliminary and main screen with a total area of 12sq m in four separation stages. These include a first grade for cleaned materials, second grade for small grains, a tailings separation for small grains, and air sifting to remove light particles.

Suitable for cleaning malting barley, the machine can be supplied with screen bed controls that allow different crops to be cleaned without the need to change screens. The TAS 152A-2 Twin Aspiration Cleaner weighs in at 4.5t and requires an 8Kw power supply. List price for the machine is £18,900. &#42
