Auger for moistening grain

Storing and removing grain with the right moisture is not easy, but it is absolutely necessary. If the grain has too much moisture during storage, there is a risk of mould and fungal attack. In addition to controlled storage, it must also be ensured that the moisture sold is guaranteed during loading – just as the customer bought it. Furthermore, the operator avoids economic disadvantages due to different degrees of humidity.
