Are you looking to secure long lasting, bulk storage to suit your Agriculture needs?
Enmach offers silos with extraordinary durability and a 20-year plus lifespan. The harsh Australian climate can have a devastating impact on the equipment we utilise in our outdoor occupations and lifestyles. Enmach reinvented and redesigned products made from traditional materials and manufactures them from materials such as polyethylene and stainless-steel to extend lifespan and durability. Enmach have the largest range of Poly Silos in the world and is the only roto-moulder in Australia dedicated to manufacturing and installation of independently F.E.A engineered Poly Silos that are cyclonic wind rated and load tested.
Silos are commonly used in agriculture for bulk storage of grain, coal, cotton, rice, fertiliser, sugar, wheat and much more. Our extensive range of silos can be used to a wide range of Agricultural storage applications and can be modified and accessorised to suit your every need.
We pride ourselves in making products what will last. Enmach poly agricultural products are lighter than the steel products they replace, have one of the world’s best UV protection ratings, resist rust and have compounded colour that will not fade or scratch off. Ultimately, Enmach has created the poly advantage – unbeatable durability.
Our focus is on providing the best experience through quality, reliable products and a competitive price. After 30 years in the industry, we will continue to grow our business and improve the quality of our product by working with our farms and farmers across Australia. We understand that different grains have different necessities to keep them fresh and give them the longest storage shelf-life, and that is why we have created the plastic silos.
Understanding the ideal moisture contents of your grains is so important when making decisions for bulk storing your grains. Spoilage during storage can often occur if the grain is stored when it is too wet.
Delmhorst has provided the following blog on What is the ideal moisture content for grain? ;
Corn. According to the Channel.com agronomics site, the ideal time to harvest corn is when it “is about 23 to 25%.3 ” moisture content.
Wheat. As noted by the DuPont Pioneer agronomy page on wheat, wheat should always be harvested “between 20% and 14% moisture.” Above this, damage to kernels is more likely and storage issues can crop up. Below this, cutterbar losses are more likely.
Rice. Rice is a staple crop that is very sensitive to moisture conditions. As stated by organizations like the International Rice Research Institute, the ideal %MC of rice at harvest is between 20% and 25%.
Rye. The harvest process of rye requires a bit of preparation. As noted by the Alberta Agriculture and Forestry page, rye should “be swathed when the kernel moisture content is 40 to 45 per cent.” The actual harvest should take place after a slow drying process in the field wherein the %MC of the rye is reduced to below 20% (per the Alberta Agriculture page’s recommendations).
These are just a few of the different grain crops that farmers may commonly encounter.
Polyethylene has proved to be a winner in the manufacture of silos. Sweating is greatly reduced or removed as the insulation properties of polyethylene keeps your grain cooler resulting in reduced incidence of sweating. All silos heat up during the day and then on nightfall the outer steel skin of a steel silo cools rapidly. Plastic silos are thicker than steel, 10 to 30 millimetres thick to be exact, and this thickness helps to keep your feed cooler during the day and then on nightfall, the temperature change is more gradual resulting in a slower dissipation of stored heat and less or no incidence of sweating.
