Vibratory unit passes screen test for grain

When an agribusiness needed to remove foreign materials from grain to prevent dryer fires and improve grain quality, the company installed a vibratory screener.

The Andersons Ag Group, a large, regional agribusiness based in Maumee, Ohio, annually handles about 130 million bushels of corn, wheat, and soybeans. The company buys grain from growers, rural elevators, terminals, and subterminals. Bulk trucks and railcars deliver the grain, and a hydraulic lift tilts bulk trucks at a 45- to 50-degree angle for discharge. Hopper-bottom trucks and railcars discharge through a grate to a dump pit. Open belt conveyors or enclosed drag conveyors then move the grain to a bucket elevator that lifts the grain and discharges it by centrifugal force into a distributor spout. The spout routes the grain to a selected storage bin or storage pile to keep the grains separated by quality.
