for plough & discharging grain in lauter tun

The Advantages of this system are below,

▪ Full Automatic Control ▪ Level Off Grain
▪ Better Ploughing ( Plough Grain In Different Levels) ▪ Less Sugar Residue ( Sparge Grain In Different Levels) ▪ Not Destroy Grain Bed
▪ Discharge Spent Grain Clearly
▪ High Concentricity
▪ PE PTFE boards are fixed on the bottom of rakes which can protect the milled false bottom.

Six Positions for proximity switches
▪ First Position:Low Level Protection
▪ Second Position: Plough and Smooth Grain
▪ Third Position:Plough the Top Level Grain
▪ Fourth Position:Plough the Deep Level Grain, (100mm above the false bottom) ▪ Fifth Position:Plough the Bottom Level Grain, Increase filtration rate
▪ Sixth Position:Lowest Level Protection
Three Position During Sparging
▪ Top level ▪ Middle Level ▪ Deep Level
