  • Spent grain dewatering

    1. Back ground: Firms that produce alcoholic beverages from grain are an important market for dewatering Powerful Belt Press. The industry firms consist mostly of beer brewers and distilleries. Their raw materials are barley, corn, wheat, rice, and other grains. They all produce a common by-product: spent grain. Spent grain is the name given to material left after the grain is fermented and the ...

  • Brewer's Grain - Case Study

    Brewer's grain is a vegetable residue from the production of beer and other malt beverages. The material has a high nutritional value and is a popular feed supplement for livestock. Dairy farmers consider brewer's grain to be a highly palatable and absorptive feedstock that helps stimulate milk production. However, due to the high moisture content, fresh brewer's grain has a very short shelf ...

  • Grain case study - Quaker Oats

    Elbows Solve Pneumatic Wear Problems Problem It happened again and again. At the Pet Foods Division of Quaker Oats in Rockford, Illinois, the stainless steel elbows in their pneumatic conveying systems were wearing out every three months, or even less. Elbows were wearing through in three different systems: Two of the systems carry grains (barley, ...

  • Grain legumes in northern great plains

    Cropping systems in the Northern Great Plains have shifted from fallow-based to legume-based systems. The introduction of grain legumes has impacted soil organisms, including both symbiotic and nonsymbiotic N-fixing bacteria, pathogens, mycorrhizae and fauna, and the processes they perform. These changes occur through effects of legume seed exudates, rhizosphere exudates, and decomposing crop ...

  • Multi-residue mycotoxin analysis of dry distillers grains

    Distillers grains (DG) are the still residues after the ethanol has been collected. Approximately 90% of US production is used in domestic animal feed. Any Mycotoxins present in the fresh corn can be concentrated by a factor of three. Contamination can also occur during storage. This raises concern about the potential animal and human health hazards from the use of Mycotoxincontaminated ...

  • Grain tanks help whiskey flow at Jack Daniels

    In a world that moves too fast, it’s nice to know some people don’t believe in shortcuts. That’s the spirit behind Jack Daniel’s, America’s oldest registered distillery. Founded in 1866, Jack Daniel’s is an iconic brand that’s synonymous with whiskey. From its modest beginnings, it has grown into a global brand that is available in more than 160 ...

  • Robust method for estimating grain yield in western Kenya during the growing seasons

    Uncertainties caused by climate change and population explosion require suitable methods for estimating grain yield during the growing seasons. This paper evaluates the applicability of the AquaCrop model in the region of western Kenya. The objectives of the study were to: simulate the long-term maize crop yields for the region using AquaCrop model for variable climate scenarios, and estimate ...

  • Electroforming a process for macro/nano manufacturing

    This paper describes the application of electroforming in the synthesis of nanocrystalline nickel by very high speed movement of the electrolyte; the principles and mechanisms of electroforming in the production of nanocrystalline structured metallic objects in combination with high speed movement of electrolyte are also described. Nanocrystalline nickel components were formed at a speed ...

    International Agents Wanted Win Tone Machinery Manufacture Co., Ltd. is the professional manufacturer of corn and grain processing equipment. The Grain Processing Research Center of Henan Province is established in our company. And the international agents are wanted for us now. What Can We Supply? We can supply various ...

  • Improving the fermentation characteristics of corn through agronomic and processing practices

    This study determined the influence of corn (Zea mays L.) hybrids, N availability, grain harvest moisture, and drying temperatures on dry-mill ethanol production. Six hybrids, ranging from 92 to 108 d in relative maturity (RM), were planted at two locations over 2 yr. One of four N fertilizer treatments were applied. Grain was hand-harvested at grain moistures of 20 and 25%. Grain was dried to ...

  • Towards achieving nano-structured sintered ceramics with high stability for SOFC applications: Ce1−xMxO

    Through selected examples, we have demonstrated the importance of using nanoparticles of oxides to obtain nanostructured sintered ceramics at low sintering temperatures. For this purpose, we have prepared two series of single doped ceria solid solutions of the general formulae Ce1−xMxO2−δ, where M = Gd and Sm and x = 0.05-0.2 using a modified combustion process, namely a mixed ...

  • Beer: Making Bread And Mushrooms

    A traditional brewery of today (see model of traditional brewery below), that brews beer according to the German purity standards, produces beer, but also produces organic waste streams and lost energy. This waste from the brewery is organic material which means that its polluting effect could be seen as minimal. However, given the quantity of water needed for the large volumes of beer produced ...

  • Structural characterisation of textured gold nanowires

    Gold nanowire ensembles of high aspect ratio were grown by electrodeposition into nanoporous polymeric templates. Under dc electrodeposition conditions a strong texture of the nanowires was observed, whereas under ac deposition conditions a preferred growth direction in was found. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X–ray diffraction (XRD) investigations confirm the broken bond model ...

  • An alternate wetting and moderate soil drying regime improves root and shoot growth in rice

    A major challenge in rice (Oryza sativa L.) production is to achieve the dual goal of increasing food production and saving water. This study aimed to investigate if alternate wetting and drying regimes could improve root and shoot growth and consequently increase grain yield and water use efficiency (WUE). Two rice varieties were field-grown at Yangzhou, China in 2005 and 2006. Three irrigation ...

  • Response of yield heterosis to increasing plant density in maize

    Genetic yield improvement in maize (Zea mays L.) has been associated with heterosis and increased tolerance to high plant densities, but the physiological processes underlying heterosis for tolerance to plant density stress have not been identified. The objective of this study was to quantify the response of heterosis for grain yield to increasing plant density, and to examine the processes ...
