Making the best use of suitable ambient air for cooling and drying decreases fungal problems and insect infestation and avoids condensation problems in the store.
It is a common mistake to wait until cold weather comes to try and cool the grain – doing so increases the risk of condensation caused by heat in the grain meeting cold air above the surface of the grain.
Automatic fan control makes it possible to reach crop temperature and moisture targets more quickly, compared to manual fan control. It reduces crop cooling time and store management energy and labour costs, and ensures crops remain in optimum condition. Cooling and drying energy bills can be reduced by at least 40% since only air good enough to cool or dry the stored crop is used.
Benefits of Automatic Fan Control
Automatic fan control with crop temperature monitoring provides several benefits:
