UFA designed, supplied, installed and commissioned a grain handling and storage system for Polak Ag Enterprises of Rochester, AB in September 2017.
The storage was all tied together with an 8,500 bushel per hour reclaim system consisting of flat bottom drag conveyors and a bucket elevator. The bucket elevator is also utilized for grain receiving and allows electric distribution of the grain to all of the bins in the system at a rate of 8,500 bushels per hour.
In addition, UFA supplied and installed two 1,200 bushel per hour bucket elevators with round bottom drag conveyors to facilitate automation of the customer’s existing grain dryer. The whole package is controlled automatically from a centralized computer system which monitors equipment loading, high and low level switches, status of the dryer, as well as product inventory management in each bin.
