Only DMC's Stir-Ator single, double or triple auger machines
give you the most thorough, systematic time tested stirring
pattern you can buy.
a DMC Stir-Ator with one, two or three augers to fit 18 to
48 foot bins. Whether purchasing a new bin or updating present
storage to drying, a Stir-Ator can cut drying time by 50%
in a low temperature bin. A Stir-Ator can also help store
grain and be used as a management tool for grain conditioning.
Design III uses a spiral-stirring pattern that completely
and evenly stirs the entire bin every stirring cycle.
(50%) percent of the grain in a bin is in the outside 1/3
of the bin. A DMC Design III provides the ONLY stirring pattern
to spend more time stirring the outside of the bin rather
than the center of the bin. The Design III also moves the
outside auger closer to the bin wall than competitors' machines.
a DMC Stir-Ator for In-Bin Drying (Batch or Continuous flow)
A Design III Stir-Ator turns any drying bin
into a self-contained drying and storage system. With a Stir-Ator
in your bin, you have wet holding, drying and storage all
in the same unit. The bin can be filled with the Stir-Ator
running to stir the grain and insure that the maximum amount
of drying air can be pushed through the grain to increase
drying capacity. A complete bin full of grain can be dried
in one filling with this method. While this method is not
the fastest, it is very efficient and maintains the highest
grain quality of all drying systems.
Stir-Ator decreases static pressure by fluffing or loosening
grain to allow maximum airflow. Grain is mixed so it dries
faster, thus avoiding the problem of overdrying bottom layers
of grain while the top layers are still wet. When all the
grain is dry, a Design III Stir-Ator equipped bin can be used
for storage. Periodic running of a Stir-Ator (with or without
aeration) helps prevent grain spoilage and damage when storing
over a long period of time.
A Stir-Ator works well with an in-bin
continuous-flow system to increase drying capacity. The dry
grain is continuously removed from the bottom of the bin as
it dries. The stirring augers should be cut off 30 inches
above the floor to avoid disturbing the drying front. The
grain above this zone (grain depths of up to 16 feet) is constantly
being stirred, allowing greater airflow and heat to move upward
through the wet grain to provide greater drying capacity and
Design III was engineered to require a minimum amount of maintenance
and remains the most popular selling stirring machine ever
following features are STANDARD with DMC's Stir-Ators.
Graduated Pitch Augers
Easier start ups, more flighting at bottom of auger where
the most grain is stirred. More flighting to move more grain.
A 3/16" aircraft cable drives the machine, no reversing
A fused disconnect box to protect motors and your investment.
The machine will shut down if the trolley gets in a bind position.
Fused Gear Motor
Protects against electrical problems.
Solid State Electronic Tilt Switch
Gear Motor Ratio
The "9 to 1" gear motor ratio makes DMC's Stir-Ator
the most aggressive machine money can buy.
