Kwik Kleen Grain Cleaners
Kwik Kleen Grain Cleaner
Since it’s release in Australia in 2011, the Kwik Kleen Grain Cleaner has become an industry-leader amongst grain cleaning equipment. With units now in use by growers & grain traders in many areas of Australia, it has become the most cost-effective addition to their business for years. Reports from Kwik Kleen owners show screening rates of better than a tonne per minute are regularly achieved with cereal grain. For many growers this means they can clean contaminated grain direct from field before delivering into on-site storages or grain trucks. That’s a big advantage compared with storing trash and weed seeds.
Only 5% screenings in a 100t silo means up to 5 tonne of screenings.
Or for 10 silos, that could mean up to 50t of extra storage capacity.
Other big benefits claimed by Kwik Kleen users include much cleaner environment within the storage, less risk of hot-spots & moulding, and less damage by grain insects. A bonus of clean grain is that grain aeration systems protect grain quality more efficiently when contaminants, husk and dust are no longer present. And an unexpected find reported by some growers has been large numbers of grain insects in screenings from grain straight off the paddock. Organic producers reap extra benefit by removing large quantities of weed seed often found in crops that aren’t sprayed-out.
From canola to broad beans is possible with the wide range of round-hole and slotted perforated screens available for the Kwik Kleen. By fitting brush augers inside the tubular screens, an even wider range of grain cleaning solutions can be offered. The machine is not meant to be a grader or scalper, but with some modifications and in the right situation has been used to perform these operations as well. In its standard form the machine operates from the tractor hydraulics. Electric & hydraulic power-pack drive options are also available.
