Maintenance, repair, refurbishment, new-build, bespoke …
With our own comprehensive workshop facilities, we’ll show you how easy it can be to keep your grain processing machinery in peak condition, as well as replacing or upgrading to your very own requirements.

Winter is almost certainly the best time of year to think about machinery and your up-coming requirements in preparation for the new season. Whether it’s essential routine maintenance, or considering the purchase of new or replacement equipment, there are often big decisions to be made.

At Kelvin Cave Ltd we’re best known for our market-leading Korte and Murska grain processing machines, as well as our own acclaimed Bruiser range, all of which are synonymous with quality and reliability. 

With throughput capacities of 1.5 to 50 tonnes/hour we understand that farmers and contractors often have very different and specific needs and expectations from their machines. This is why we will always take time to work with our customers to ensure we offer solutions that will precisely meet their expectations and budgets.

Over the years we have faced numerous challenges from customers seeking to incorporate the proven performance of our grain-crimping and rolling technology into machines that can offer even more than just their outstanding grain-processing ability. This has brought about the development of mill-and-mix machines with integrated on-board hoppers and tanks for adding minerals, protein and molasses supplements to grain to produce high value, balanced, concentrate feed at the point of processing.

Thanks to our dedicated engineering team and extensive fabrication and workshop facilities, we can design and build bespoke chassis and trailer units to help make machines across the range easily relocatable, as well as constructing static, gantry-mounted installations, such as this electrically powered Korte 1400 (pictured right), built for  a feed blending facility.

Add-ons, such as on-board weighing, have proved particularly popular with contractors who need to monitor and record throughput accurately for their clients, as well as for farmers seeking a simple method of determining crop yields.

Our own KC Bruiser 600 and 1250 British-built grain-rolling machines are helping to further expand the options available to farmers, and can also be fitted with weighing systems and ancillary features. 

DID YOU KNOW? …

World-renowned Korte rollers can be retrofitted to some other proprietary makes of grain-processing machines, helping to improve their throughput performance and reliability.

PLAN AHEAD

With the harvest season all but over for another year, now is a good time to take stock of the toll taken on machines and plan ahead for any maintenance or repairs that may be necessary.

We can undertake all forms of mechanical and electrical repairs and refurbishment including complete strip-downs, bearing and drive-train replacements, roller refurbishment and machining, shot blasting, re-spraying, rewiring and general maintenance checks.

Much of this work is best done before laying-up machines for the winter and, if done now, can contribute significantly to longevity and reliability over time.  Contact us now to book your machine in for a refurbishment or to discuss your specific requirements for a bespoke mill-and-mix unit.

As the sole UK distributor for Korte and Murska we have exclusive access to approved spares and components, as well as the technical expertise and support of the world-leader in grain-processing machinery.

DID YOU KNOW? …

We can often provide pre-owned machines that have been fully refurbished in our own workshops, providing an affordable entry point to home-grown feed processing.
