A point which likely didn't concern the Neolithic people was Two or 6 Roll Barley. [nggallery id=97] Two row Barley is preferred in the production of Beer as it has lower Protein levels, higher starch levels & a thinner husk. Six row Barley is usually used for Feed production, it has High protein levels, A heavy outer husk and is said to have a 'Grainer taste'. Though in other regions, 6 Row barley is used, and is liked and enjoyed For those interested in Malting Barley varieties find some information here and here.

Optical sorters

2017-05-03T08:21:10+00:00June 6th, 2016|

Optical sorters [nggallery id=93] Color sorters are innovative and energy-efficient equipment designed to optically sort various bulk materials from impurities being hard to separate. The sorting is based on the visual properties of the product such as color, shape, and texture in the full-color RGB mode, infrared spectrum as well as in any other visible spectra. Cutting-edge sorting algorithms for different products, flawless optical system and RGB LED-lighting of the backgrounds perfectly blend together to precisely identify various admixtures. Reliable and highly efficient ejectors integrated directly into the nozzles immediately and accurately blow off mixtures out of the product flow providing for the product purity up to 99.99 %. Note the below photographs, Pre & Post sorting. A good example of the machines quality is the Sun flower sample, Typically sorting two tone Seeds can be difficult to sort. This product is also equally suitable for the recycling industry, the [...]

Crimping & Bruising mills

2017-05-03T08:54:38+00:00October 11th, 2014|

Crimping & Bruising mills. [nggallery id=69] We are at the mercy of the weather during the harvest, During a fine summer the Harvest can be brought in with ease, A farmer with a yield of 4TPA would be satisfied, The moisture content of the Grain could be between 15 - 18% Moisture content, which will mean greatly reduced Grain preservation and Dry costs. This does not happen often enough. During damp seasons the Grain can be between 20 - 40% moisture content, Grain drying is not an option it is simply too expensive to Dry the grain for hours on end. Wakely engineering have being developing various types of Grain preservation systems for 20 plus years, We have a system for each preservative type,  These grain preservation systems all fit onto the same chassis. The Dual  hoppers allows Contractors & Farmers to conveniently dose in a range of preservatives depending on the season’s weather, In western [...]

[nggallery id=67] A Troika of Irish companies traveled to Russian for a 7 day mission. Wakely Engineering Hi-spec & Tanco all participated in this Enterprise Ireland funded event. The Troika attended several Seminars organised by the local agricultural agency, Focusing mainly on Milk production. During these seminars we spoke with numerous farmers and discussed our complete feeding concept and how this would improve Milk production. The scale of farming and the fertility of the soil allows foe many advantages to the farmer, Several obstacles must be overcome, 1.Capital Investment shortfall 2. Current farming technology 3. Farming educational programme. Check out this video, that was taken during this visit. http://youtu.be/N4Z5oXvL9t4?list=UUxnUYi0XIXrzuJe7D3-ARTw

  [nggallery id=41] A new model in the 1240 series, The 1240 Mobile compact has being designed to fulfill the requirements of large beef fattening farmers & contractors. Both versions would vary slightly based on there usage. A Contractor’s machine might include: Calculator (measures the machine output) 8 or 10 Stud. Axels with Hydraulic or Pneumatic braking Hydraulic rolling tensioning (when changing roll gap distance) A B.F.F may include: Feeder (Weighing system used in next stage) Second axel (Yard usage only) Spring roll tension. Hydraulics not required. The 1240 Mobile compact is optimized for Dry rolling, but can Crimp though minus the rear platforms. The operation of the machine starts when the PTO is engaged. Grain is loaded into the hopper & passes through the Feeder or Calculator and fills the feedbox. Solid chilled rolls then process the grain. Adjusting the degree of crush is achieved by using using the [...]
