Grain damper choices

NORWICH-based Ben Burgess offers two models of grain damping equipment for farmers looking to boost the weight of low moisture content cereal and rape crops.

The BB15 damping worm (£3995) works on an overflow system – excess grain throughput is diverted back to the original bin – to raise moisture content by up to 4%; output is a constant 15t/hr. The more sophisticated BB60 model (£10,080) is capable of returning 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% or 2% moisture content, and has no need for an overflow return. Throuhgput is from 30 to 60t/hr.n
