COVID-19 update 20-12-21:

The LAMMA Show announced today that it will move its dates from January 11 and 12 to May 4 and 5, 2022, in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation due to the Omicron variant.


All things grain handling will take centre stage on the BDC Systems’ stand at LAMMA, in Hall 8, Stand 8.410.

"After the catchy and difficult harvest 2021, we have had significant growth in the number of enquiries for our grain handling systems and customers are taking initial enquiries forward to the design stage more quickly than usual," said Andrew Head, its managing director.

"In particular, enquiries for BDC Systems’ Svegma continuous flow driers have increased. A reflection of the struggle some farmers had this harvest to get their crops dry in time to meet market and storage requirements. I am sure there will be a lot of interest in the Svegma continuous flow drier we will have on display on our stand and the uncertain weather patterns we are experiencing mean that everyone is looking to get geared up for future harvests," he added.

The first Svegma drier was installed in the UK 38 years ago and there are now more than 1000 installations.

"We will also have BDC Systems’ Moisture Monitoring System (MMS) on show at LAMMA. This is helping farmers/grain store operators overcome the perennial challenge of how to accurately and automatically check moisture content (MC) of wet grain as it enters storage," said Mr Head.

The ability to pre-configure the MMS to automatically send text alerts should the MC fall above or below predefined maximum and minimum levels, enables farmers/grain store operators to make the necessary adjustments remotely and swiftly restore MC to required levels.

Being able to remotely adjust grain drier settings ensures that the drier is optimised to ensure that the correct mc is maintained, helping to significantly reduce energy costs.

Skandia Elevator’s next-next generation H-Line elevator has been available for delivery since early 2021, but Covid-19 restrictions meant that this will be the first time that BDC Systems will be able to showcase the elevator in the UK.

Larger farm enterprises, commercial grain storage operators and milling plants, all requiring high tonnage grain handling capability, will be able to see the H-Line in the flesh on the BDC Systems’ stand. This next-generation H-Line delivers has elevators that are easier to maintain, optimised flow meaning less wear and tear, and can now reach an overall height of 70m.
