Low-cost storage of crimped or moist, rolled grain

Where suitable clamp storage is not available, bagging completes the cycle of speedy and efficient grain processing.

Bagging provides a simple, versatile, low-cost storage solution that preserves the quality of crimped or moist, rolled grain by ensiling it in special tubular plastic bags, eliminating the need for high capital cost grain storage.The Murska Bagger is a separate packing machine to which the Korte 700S2 HD or Korte 1000S2 HD can be fitted to provide a single operation grain-processing to storage system. The discharge elevator is removed from the crimper so that processed grain flows directly from the rollers into the packing tunnel.

The Murska Bagger can also be supplied with a specially designed bulk hopper that allows it to be used for bagging other moist feeds such as brewers grains, pressed sugar beet pulp, bakery and bread waste, vegetable waste and other by-products. Air-free storage results in waste-free feed.

The Korte 1400S 2×2 and 2000S 2×2 crimpers are also available with an integral bagging system, allowing high output grain processing and storage in one seamless operation. All the bagging machines incorporate a hoisting mechanism to load the bag onto the tunnel, and at least one (depending on model) carrying rack for a 200 ltr drum of CrimpSafe™.

Kelvin Cave offer a full UK-based workshop support facility and an overnight delivery service for most of the common spares items. The company also offer a reconditioning service and reconditioned, pre-owned machines are sometimes available. Part exchange is possible for farmers and contractors who wish to upgrade from their existing machines.
