Setup for the Typical SarTec Grain Conditioning
Incoming grain is usually dumped from a truck and transported
to a storage bin.
Grain is then legged from the storage bin through a grain
weighing device that measures the grain flow with accuracy to 1%.
The grain is then passed over a continuous moisture sensor
that has a patented grain cleaning system.
The grain is then dropped into a mixing auger that has been
modified with cuts and folds or has mixing bars. Water is added at the start
of the mixing auger along with SarTemp SG delivered from the SarMeter, which
is controlled by the brain of the system, the SarComputer.
After the water and SarTemp SG is added to the grain it is then
typically dry-rolled or steam flaked and placed in a final storage bin before
The SarComputer is called on a daily basis from SarTec
Headquarters to download each days processing information. This information
is then used to provide the feedlot with a bi-monthly report, which assures
that the proper level of SarTemp SG is always added to the processed grain.
