The process of grain handling is associated with grain storage includes cleaning, drying, blending operations and the procedure involve during handling requires level instruments to measure the accurate level of grains in the hopper, silos, and bins, etc.
Grains like wheat, rice, corn, etc. are imported from agriculture farm to grain handling industries where operations of grains are performed. For further operations, these are unloaded from the truck into large hoppers or silos. Orbit with adjustable sensitivity arrangement is better option whereas for vibrating fork series choose Vital.
The grains are infected with many impurities like insects, small pebbles etc. Drying process involve separation of impurities by using hot air makes them use for longer. Use Vital, vibrating fork level sensor which resist high temperature up to 200°C and for continous monitoring Capvel-ICT is well suited.
After completing the drying method the grains are still infected with some impurities which reduce the quality. This method includes the separation of grains from the impurity and sorting them according to quality. For steady level monitoring MPILC is useful and Capacitive based level sensor SLC will be a effective solution.
The grains are conveyed to one silo to another using various types of conveyor systems like bucket elevators, belt conveyors, drag systems, etc. The speed monitoring of buckets is required which can be possible by SSSI.
After performing all the process; now the grains are ready to dispatch and usable for various industries and before its dispatch these are stored in various large storage silos where vibrating fork Vital is convenient to use.
