UKRAINIAN BREAKTHROUGH. HI-TECH IN AGRICULTURE
In the most beautiful suburb of Kharkov, in Tsirkuny, in a few years a powerful enterprise has grown – the Kharkov Grain Cleaning Plant (HZZO). It took KhZZO seven years to become one of the notable manufacturers in the global agricultural machinery market.
With its latest development, the self-propelled cleaning complex SOK-25, the Ukrainian plant has changed both the market and even the structure of post-harvest grain processing.
The self-propelled cleaning complex SOK-25 of the Kharkov Grain Cleaning Plant is a technological breakthrough in grain cleaning machine building. This is the so-called “new product” – a product that creates a fundamentally new situation in the industry. SOK-25 is replacing outdated equipment for post-harvest grain processing from agriculture as radically as the computer replaced typewriters, and the mobile phone replaced pagers and landline telephones. Now the grain can be simply poured out at the warehouse, and SOK-25 will drive up by itself, load it, clean and unload the separated fractions separately in automatic mode. Already existing ZAVs in farms will work for a long time, but building new ones, despite the fact that you can use SOK-25, which costs several times less, and its efficiency is many times greater, there is no sense anymore. Thanks to automation and capacitive sensors, the technological process is automated as much as possible. All of this can be summed up in two words: competitive advantage. For farmers, this is an offer that cannot be refused.
No bunkers, dump pits, conveyors, multi-stage processing.
No dust for a kilometer around. There are no screens, brushes or other consumables.
CLEANLINESS, SOUL THUMBING OF THE UNIT, GRAIN IN ONE BODY, FODDER IN ANOTHER, DUST IN A SPECIAL CONTAINER.
This is how the SOK-25 unit works. The scraper conveyor loads the grain into the hopper. The bunker is equipped with capacitive load level sensors, which, when the bunker is full, turn off the loading conveyor. In case of incomplete filling, a signal is sent to the wheel drive, the unit moves closer to the shoulder. From the hopper, the grain enters the separation chamber, where it is sorted by weight and windage with a laminar air flow. The scraper conveyor of the unloading boom loads the separated grain to a height of 4 m. The dust settles in the bunker of the cyclone-sedimentary complex. Additionally, the SOK-25 unit can be equipped with a preliminary cleaning unit in order to reduce grain processing to a single technological cycle.
The success of the Kharkov Grain Cleaning Plant does not seem accidental. From the first days the plant has been operating under the slogan “Innovations in Agriculture”.
The huge scientific and production potential of the city made it possible to brilliantly realize this slogan. Kharkiv residents staked on hi-tech, the latest technologies of our time, and won.
• We were the first to solve the urgent problem of air purification in 2014. Now you can breathe freely at the elevator!
• We created a mobile ZAV, which eliminated loaders and unloaders. He picks up the grain himself, sorts it and loads it where necessary.
• Our grain cleaning machines have innovative main units, the technical solutions used in them are protected by patents.
