New user-friendly organic acid blend

AN ADDITIVE containing a blend of organic acids for use on crimped cereals and pulses, which is said to be user-friendly, has been launched by Kelvin Cave.

Crimpstore 2000S is classified as a mild irritant, compared with its predecessor Crimpstore 2000, which was a mild acid. It uses similar levels of active ingredients to the original, but these have been rendered non-corrosive by a special process, explains the company.

The new additive is said to be better than the original in controlling aerobic stability, both in the clamp and at feed out, and is safer and easier to use. The product comes in 30 litre or 205 litre drums and costs about £4/t of grain ensiled (01458-252281, fax 01458-253277).
