kernel maize plant in ukraine

October 2014

Assentoft Silo has just finished installing 2 big silos for wet maize kernels - and a smaller, galvanized silo for the breather bag (connected by piping to the silos) in Ukraine.

The maize kernel silos are made from vitreous enamelled steel sheets, with stainless steel roof and the Assentoft sweep arm auger system for unloading the moist maize kernels from the flat silo bottom.

The maize kernels ferment inside the silos and reach a low ph value. This low ph value helps securing a high degree of hygiene in the liquid feeding plant.

The kernel maize is ground in a liquid grinding mill, together with water for the mixing tank - running in a loop until the right quantity of maize is ground.
