"The installation of our new cleaning plant has been timely," Jo Cameron, General Manager of WIMPAK  said. "It ensures we can effectively clean grain for our growers while offering competitive prices."

Aiming for zero waste and 

100% deliverability of products

WIMPAK is committed to provide 100% deliverability of products and zero waste to growers within the region and has tasked Pneuvay Engineering to make this a reality. Some of the services they deliver include:
  • Seed cleaning and grading 
  • Product warehousing (storage of pulse grains at our Minyip site)
  • Contract packing 

Four pneumatic conveying systems in operation

There are four systems in operation on the new Wimpak cleaning and grading system. Each of these systems are used for conveying the graded seed and refuse after cleaning.

Some of the materials conveyed pneumatically include:
  • Refuse
  • Dust
  • Broken kibble 
  • Quality seeds 

With a flow rate of three (3) tonnes per hour, Pneuvay designed an efficient, reliable and cost effective pneumatic grain handling system of storing various materials in separate silos at ranges of 40 meters. This included utilising the following equipment for the required mobile and fixed plant installations:

Michael Francis of Pneuvay stated, "This type of installation is typical for us. There are no engineering challenges in moving grain in such a situation."

"Pneuvay is well versed at setting up mobile and fixed plant bulk material conveying systems for grains like corn, soya beans and wheat to load in bulk into silos and trucks. We also service blowers throughout the grain industry, including installations storage." he added.

WIMPAK - delivering better opportunity 

to local producers

The pneumatic grain conveying system resulted in 100% deliverability of farm products. It lead to zero waste as each component of the produce can now be used in value added opportunities. This provided a fantastic opportunity for local producers to increase both their domestic and global market sales, increasing the financial output of their farms. 

Pneuvay Engineering is proud to be associated with it and congratulate WIMPAK on their success. Read some of the pneumatic conveying projects we have completed.
