First Burnley® Baffles have been installed in New Zealand in 2017

Last year Mideco extended its reach to New Zealand – we began working with Rakaia Engineering Ltd (REL Group). This company designs, engineers and imports a full suite of farming solutions.  One of their areas of expertise is specialist grain storage and handling equipment.

Grain processing usually produces a lot of dust and without special machinery the whole process could be slow and environmentally challenging. Mideco’s Burnley® Baffles are a perfect dust solution for working with grain. In fact, this so far has been its most common application. Specifically, for grains and feeds handling Mideco recommends Model 1 with baffles depth of 339 mm.

The Burnley® Baffles provides a dust control service preventing 75% dust escape without the use of additional dust extraction equipment. This is due to its unique design and ability for customisation. It is also much cheaper and more efficient then installing a dust collector.

Last year Rakaia Engineering was able to implement Burnley® Baffles, Model 1 in two different projects at grain facilities in New Zealand.  This year has begun by discussing Rakaia clients’ needs for 2018. Mideco is awaiting confirmation regarding two more projects that will involve Burnley® Baffles.

We look forward to another successful year together.
