grain handling

rugged actuator solutions for grain handling & Dust ignition proof environments

Still more stringent regulation and control within the food sector calls for more flexible and accurate handling of agricultural products.

At the same time, safety for employees in the industry has a priority on the agenda. With specialized electric actuator solutions you get benefits like:
  • Compact systems certified to work in even very dusty environments
  • Simple installation of durable components
  • Intelligent solutions capable of giving feedback and saving energy
Safety is the single most important factor when handling grain. Not only is the machinery used in the industry of a considerable size, but also grain dust gets in everywhere and in large quantities, it can be flammable and even explosive.

Electric linear actuators can be used everywhere in grain handling. From the machines transporting it to grain doors, diverter valves and grain elevators at the storage plant.

Keep your facility safe with certified actuators
Moving parts in grain storage facilities and machinery need to be able to withstand heavy dust through many years. LINAK actuators are thoroughly tested to meet stringent certification standards in order to keep the area around the grain facility safe.

Have a simple and maintenance-free solution
Electric linear actuators have no hoses, pumps or compressors. This means no leaking gasses or spilling oil and no need for maintenance. The actuators are easy to install and saves you energy i.e. they are cost-efficient. Subsequently they are durable and remain fully operative under harsh conditions.

Handle with care – intelligently
Movement is an essential part of handling grain - opening and closing grain doors, diverting and blending into the optimal commodity and transporting it safely. With an intelligent and easy to integrate actuator solution you can monitor and adjust valves and doors remotely, you can control the inlet, adjust to precise positioning and prevent overloading.
