What does a Curing Bin Operator do?

Tends moistening drums of curing bins that spread moisture uniformly through cooked grain prior to or after being shaped into breakfast cereal, such as flakes or shredded biscuits: Opens gate in conveyor duct to deflect incoming grain into first bin. Closes gate when bin is full, records time, and repeats filling operation with next bin. Pulls lever to dump grain onto conveyor as specified curing time is completed for each bin. Dislodges remaining grain from bin, using pole. May tend bins and cooling towers that cool toasted grain to specified temperature for packaging by starting fan and turning water valves as grain moves through equipment and moving lever to direct grain into chutes of filling machines.
