I have questions for the experts
This is my first experience with a rotary in wheat, I'm used to walker machines. Anyway I tried some of the setting here on the board and didn't have much luck with them, I got a real dirty sample. Heres where I ended up: Small wire concaves with fillers on 1,2,3 positions, concave clearance 20, rotor speed 850, fan 850, chaffer 18, sieve 5, separator fillers 2 rows on right 3 on left. Conditions are fairly dry, we are taking most all the straw through the machine for bailing and it is pretty heavy wheat between 120 and 160 bpa. For an idea on the straw we are getting about 8 4x4 bales per acre. With the chaffer and sieve setting the sample is really clean just a few white caps, the return is running between 1/4 and 1/2 full and sieve loss is very minimal, but my rotor loss is what is limiting my speed. I'm running between 1.8 and 2.5 mph with a 25' head. I don't have a set of large wire, I do have a set of round bar for HM corn, any one have any pointers?
Just for a plug for the STS, after years of using walker machine I'm impressed with the 9660, grain quality is top notch you have to hunt to find a cracked kernal, the sample is cleaner and capacity is quite a bit better. Thanks for any help.
