Automatic Dampening Machine | TOCA

It is used in the grain processing plants to moisten the grain at a desired rate.

Automatic Dampening Machine - TOCA


  • The machine is constructed of stainless steel, consisting of semi circular 25° inclined worm with Plexiglas cover
  • Rotor consisting of 600 mm screw and 1700 mm of variable pitch mixing paddles
  • Square section iron structure supporting the screw conveyor, water flow control equipment and motor
  • Manually operated valve for closing water circuit

Working Principle

The grain flow entering the casing agitates the water flow sensor; the water is sprayed into the grain and mixes with it. The blades push the grain mixed with water to the grain outlet. Capable of adding up to 5% water to cleaned wheat with even distribution of moisture. Avoids grains breakage, minimize the wear of rotor and prevents its unbalance thanks to limited operational speed. The water distribution to kernel is fast and uniform with thorough penetration and absorption.
