They say that gambling is a mug’s game, and that’s certainly true when it comes to taking risks with your valuable home-grown crimped feeds. However, by putting your smart money on the combined use of these proven products, you’ll be on a winning streak every time. 

To retain the overall quality, digestibility and nutritional value of your crimped feeds, it’s a safe bet to rely on the expertise of Kelvin Cave Ltd and our proven range of preservatives, processing machinery and ensiling products including…

6. CrimpSafe 300 and CrimpSafe Hi-Dry
CrimpSafe 300 ensures a controlled fermentation and maximum nutrient retention for ensiled, crimped grain above 25% moisture. For effective preservation and ensiling of grain below 25% moisture content, use CrimpSafe Hi-Dry.

5. Propcorn NC
Propcorn NC is the proven, non-corrosive, successor of Propcorn. Safer to use, and with 70% less fumes than straight propionic acid, Propcorn NC is suitable for preserving whole, or rolled, grain and pulses with  moisture content of up to 25%, in aerobic conditions. 

4. Grain processing machines
With proven versatility and performance across the range, Kelvin Cave Ltd has machines capable of processing between 600kg and 50 tonnes per hour, and a range of ancillary equipment and bespoke options to suit all applications.

3. O2 Barrier 2in1
Applied as a single sheet which transforms into two on the clamp, O2 Barrier 2in1 comprises a protective, high-quality top layer covering a layer of very oxygen impermeable, polyamide vacuum film. It provides quick and effective clamp sealing with reduced workload, and up to a tenfold decrease in oxygen permeability compared to conventional sheeting systems.

2. ClampTiles and ClampNet
Made from 90 per cent recycled material with a life expectancy of around 15 years, ClampTiles are ideal for providing even weight and protection on crimped grain clamps. Ergonomically designed for ease of handling, unlike tyres, they don’t harbour rainwater and debris, and when not in use can be stacked on pallets.

A 300g/m2, heavy-duty green silage cover with hemmed, stitched edges to prevent fraying or unravelling, ClampNet offers added protection from attack by birds and vermin and also helps to maintain compaction.

1. KlampClips and Side Sheets
Made from stainless, spring steel, KlampClips are like an extra pair of hands when
lining clamp walls with side sheets. Available in two sizes (100-150mm clamp wall
width x 700mm long, and 200-300mm clamp wall width x 1000mm long), both are available in packs of 25. Heavy-duty, 150μm, clear plastic side sheets are supplied in 50-metre rolls and convenient widths of 4, 5 and 6 metres.
