Elevators in agriculture The elevators are a complex of equipment for grain storage (tanks, hoppers) and transport equipment (elevators, conveyors), through which the grain moves along the specified routes. Modern metal silos are equipped with special equipment for grain, such as temperature control systems, aeration systems, detection systems of insects. The structure of the Elevator includes laboratory and weighing equipment to control the quantity and quality of incoming grain. Storage capacity You can also improve the quality of the grain, drying it, and purify from minor or major impurities. Often households are forced to use private elevators, and it costs quite expensive. For example, the cost of a private Elevator - 60 rubles per ton per month. Plus loading, shipping, drying and grain cleaning take 300-400 rubles per ton at a time. Typically the difference between cost and market price is 2000-2500 rubles. Given the market price of grain, it turns out that three months storage at the Elevator lost 25% of income. Therefore, it is beneficial to buy the Elevator.
