How Grain Vacs Work
Grain is carried on a cushion of air.
Grain is sucked into the grain vac and enters the main cyclone. Here the grain is separated from the air and deposited into the airlock.
The air from the large cyclone then moves to the second cyclone removing dust similar to the grain being separated from the air in the large cyclone. The cleaner air then moves up and out of the cyclone and goes through the blower.
The pressure from the bottom of the blower pushes through the airlock moving the grain out to your truck or bin
In conclusion, the grain vac not only removes dust as it moves through the grain from one spot to another, which is the main cause of health issues, but it does so in a fashion that maintains the quality and value of your crops.
What Makes the Difference in a Grain Vac
The blower is the heart of the system. Castings are machined to strict tolerances to assure maximum efficiency that allows you to move grain a greater distance without using one or more expensive booster type systems. Blowers come with front and rear oil reservoirs complete with breathers and oil level glasses
To achieve and maintain best performance, the airlock components are precision machined. The steel rotors are fitted with adjustable steel tips to allow the operator to keep the airlock working at peak performance at all times. The rotor is driven by a reversible, pressure protected, hydraulic motor. This allows the operator to easily clear obstructions and blockages in the airlock should they occur, thereby minimizing down time.
The quick connect couplers provide a tight fit to assure that maximum vacuum and pressure is maintained. The quick connect feature makes it easy to add or remove extensions when filling tall silos or long distance grain movement is required.
The Thor high efficiency silencing system reduces noise intensity by over 50% with absolutely NO reduction in machine capacity! Our unique silencing design provides greater operator comfort for years of satisfaction.
The blower protection system
The blower is protected so that enables dust to be removed from the air in the cyclone before it returns to the blower. This gives the blower "years of trouble free performance".
