agricultural storage product Applications in Europe

  • Silos and manure storage systems for agricultural industry

    From Harvestore silos and unloaders to Slurrystore manure storage systems, no one invests in advancing agricultural productivity like CST.

  • Recycling Systems for Processing of agricultural waste

    Agricultural waste materials like wheat and rice straw, EFB, and bagasse etc. can be sold and used as animal feed, as fuel for kilns and small power plants. and for the production of ethanol. Unfortunately these materials are not easy to compact using traditional agricultural type balers. Macpresse balers have successfully been used in several countries, i.e. Japan, Korea, China, Sudan for transport and storage. Bale weights of up to 2 tons have been achieved.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for Controlled Atmosphere (CA) storage

    Precise regulation of O2, CO2 and N2 concentrations. A controlled atmosphere is an agricultural storage method in which the oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen concentrations are regulated. The humidity and temperature are also controlled, resulting in a slow loss of quality during prolonged bulk storage of products such as apples, pears, grains, legumes, etc.

    Improved Reproducibility and Reduced Sample Preparation Time for the HPLC Analysis of Aflatoxins in Raw Peanut Paste

    The US FDA and international regulatory agencies have set contamination levels for aflatoxins in animal feedstuffs. Since Aspergillus may infect commodities pre-harvest, during storage or during processing, monitoring for aflatoxins in associated agricultural commodities at all stages of production is requisite. Field screening methods exist that are adequate to estimate contamination levels for aflatoxins. When additional confirmation or quantification is desired, chromatographic laboratory analysis is often necessary. Preparation of matrix samples prior to chromatographic analysis typically requires extraction and purification. Commonly, immunoaffinity columns (IAC), which employ a multi-step bind and elute mechanism to concentrate and purify aflatoxins, are used to purify matrix samples for subsequent analysis. Solid phase extraction (SPE), an alternate method which may use interference removal, can also be employed.

    Determination of organic acids in feedstuff, silage, haylage, and fermentates for biogas plants

    To provide the proper conditions for silage or haylage storage in agriculture it is necessary to regularly monitor the formation of certain organic acids in it. For example, the formation of butyric acid can indicate spoiling of material. Formic or propionic acids can be artificially added to increase the nutritional quality. The same materials and some other biodegradable waists (agricultural residues, sewage sludge, etc.) are also used in biogas plants, where the fermentation process must be carefully monitored, in particular, by the determining the certain organic acids. The present method allows determination of some important organic acids like acetic, lactic, butyric, propionic, and formic in feedstuff additives, silage, haylage and in different biodegradable materials of biogas plants. Some other organic acids (oxalic, fumaric, etc.) can be also determined within this method.
