The infrastructure of the grain receiving function is becoming increasingly centralized. This results in increasing demands imposed on the capacity of the conveyor system, from receiving until in the silo cells or flat storage warehouse, in order to handle the concentrated quantity of unloading processes in the harvest season. Compatibility with many different transport vehicles must also be ensured.
The planning and construction of grain receiving solutions is one of Zuther's main business areas. Systems with a capacity of up to 500 t/h have long been the rule and even higher capacities pose no problems. In this regard our receiving pits are designed in such a manner that semi-trailers as well as dump trucks have no problems dumping.
In the year 2011 Zuther completely revised its receiving pit product line based on the experiential values obtained from practical applications. The result is a highly efficient design that sets new standards, particularly in the aspect freedom of residues. Naturally, optional equipment such as filler walls, or aspiration systems that can be used as such, are available, likewise custom-tailored.
With this kind of equipment even large central receiving facilities are possible.
