BDC Systems, UK Grain, The East of England Showground, Peterborough, 2 November 2011, Stand No: 77
BDC Systems will be highlighting its extensive range of grain drying, cleaning, ventilation, storage & handling equipment at UK Grain. This will include an example from the Aagard aspirator range – the heavy duty aspiration type pre-cleaner which is available in four models with 40 – 150 tonnes per hour capacities. It provides a different dimension to BDC Systems’ grain cleaning capability with its ability to offer good separation of lighter materials.

BDC Systems will be exhibiting the AF40 model with a 40-60 tonnes per hour. In operation, grain to be cleaned enters the cleaner body via a built-in duct which has an adjustable chute inside. This directs the grain centrally to an inverted cone, where it cascades and drops into an outlet hopper. A gap between the cone and hopper pulls the air through the grain, so that any particles lighter than the grain are removed from the sample.
An adjustable air control is fitted to the fan unit to regulate the airflow when cleaning lighter crops. Unlike conventional “dust & chaff” extractors, the grain curtain over the cone is very thin to provide good separation of this lighter material.
BDC Systems is a true one stop shop for grain care and will be providing visitors with information on all aspects of its comprehensive range.
