Feed preservation specialist Kelvin Cave has launched what it claims is the largest mobile roller mill onto the UK and Irish market.

The Murska 4000 rolls dry or moist grain at a rate of up to 100 tonnes/hour (for maize) or 80t/hr (for crimped, moist cereals). Kelvin Cave suggests this high-volume throughput makes the Murska 4000 suitable for large-scale farming operators including contractors or animal feed blend plants.

The Murska 4000 has four pairs of metre-long rollers with 2mm-fluted, hardened surface which enable the machine to roll or crimp a wide range of grains and pulses including dry cereals and maize and grains with moisture contents of up to 45%. A robust belt conveyer gives the machine extended reach into grain stores, clamps of crimp, or lorries. Its modular design also means it can be expanded with an additional unit, should an even higher capacity be required.

Designed and manufactured in Finland, the Murska 4000 joins an existing range of rollers and crimpers that caters for all sizes of operator, from the small farm that processes feed for its own livestock to large AD plants using crimp as feedstock. All models run from a tractor’s PTO, while some smaller models have the option of a three-phase electric motor.

“The Murska and Korte grain rolling and crimping machines are widely acknowledged as global market leaders,” says Michael Carpenter from Kelvin Cave. “Their ability to process all cereal grains and pulses at such a wide range of moisture contents sets the benchmark in the farming industry and meets our own exacting standards for engineering excellence.”
