Antti Marine

Sustainable products and solutions

We emphasise the development of technology-driven solutions that are reliable and efficient in all conditions. We continually test and improve our automation systems, dryers, silos, and other products to ensure optimal performance. By offering reliable and long-lasting solutions, we aim to reduce waste and contribute to the sustainable use of resources in the grain processing industry.

More with less - investing in a sustainable future

Antti’s investment in a new profiling machine for manufacturing silos enhances material utilization, enables production of larger silos and reduces carbon dioxide emissions throughout their lifespan.

Also the new extra-hardened steel material used in our silo manufacturing reduces the rate of material consumption relative to the size of the silo, resulting in cost savings and increased efficiency.

For the new profiling machine Antti-Teollisuus has been granted funding from the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union's Structural Funds programme for Sustainable Growth and Jobs 2014-2020 in Finland.

Transitioning to fossil-free grain drying

We are committed to environmental sustainability and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. We acknowledge the importance of transitioning to more sustainable energy sources.

In line with this commitment, we have announced that our dryers and heaters will be HVO (Hydro-treated Vegetable Oil) compatible from the beginning of 2022. This transition to renewable fuel oil aligns with our dedication to fostering a fossil-free era in grain drying.

Bioheaters - use fuel from your own land

Forget the oil bill, use biofuel. Bioheaters heat and dry effectively. The efficiency of the heat exchanger is excellent. The bioheaters burn wood chips, peat, pellets or briquettes, for example. It helps save up to 70 % of energy costs.

Grain silos designed for challenging conditions

In Finland farmers face challenging conditions, such as a cold climate and frequent changes in weather and temperature. These conditions generate specific requirements for grain silos.

With this knowledge in mind, we design and manufacture grain silos that are sturdy, durable, and require minimal maintenance. Our silos are made from high-quality materials and are built to withstand the harshest conditions. They are also designed to be easy to clean and maintain, so that farmers can focus on their crops. By providing high-quality grain silos, we ensure the longevity of our products, reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimizing waste.

Optimizing control systems for smaller farms

Recognizing the diverse needs of farmers, we have recently updated the control system of our dryers. The new Optima 2.0 system offers enhanced automation and the option for remote control, specifically tailored to smaller farms.

By providing this user-friendly and affordable solution, we enable smaller-scale farmers to optimize their grain drying processes and reduce energy consumption, thereby fostering sustainability at a grassroots level.

Environmental benefits of dust management

Antti's dust management products for dryers are beneficial for both farmers and the environment. By reducing the amount of dust entering the air and machines, the system helps to improve the air and environmental quality. With cleaner, less dusty air, the dryer and the surrounding area are safer, which also reduces the risk of accidents.

Furthermore, dust management reduces energy consumption and increases the service life of dryer actuators which in turn contributes to conservation of resources.

Therefore, using Antti's dust management solution yields environmental benefits in addition to economic benefits.

Optimizing energy efficiency of grain drying

With frequency converters, Antti’s control system allows the automatic control of the speed of the grain drying process, adjusting it based on factors like humidity and temperature. By optimizing the drying process with the frequency converter, farmers can reduce unnecessary energy consumption and save costs. This technology not only helps farmers be more efficient in their grain drying operations but also contributes to overall energy conservation and sustainability in the agricultural sector.
