"Tak" is the English spelling for the Ukrainian affirmative.The devices in the grain elevator are for sampling the quality of the grain. The grain truck drives onto the trundle. Depending on the setup, it will get weighed and hoisted towards the augers that dump into the hopper. The elevator manager assesses the grain quality by size and weight. He may use a separator to sort grain of different sizes. Factors that affect grain are age, weight moisture content, size, disease and frost burn if any. A sample goes on the small scale, where most of these factors are assessed. The truck load is measured and the grain gets hoppered to its proper location. A grain elevator will hold many different grades and types of grain. Each different grain will have its own hopper. After the load is taken care of and the farmer is paid off, the grain will be elevatored to its proper bin in the tower. Later, the bin gets emptied by gravity into a train car and sent to wherever.
