Grain Chilling Advantages

 

• Store the grain freshly for a longer period

• Slow down the respiration of the grain

• Avoid losses caused by unwantedbiologic activity from insects, fungus etc.

• Optimizes the use of your grain driers

• Avoids use of toxic fumigation

 

 

Features

 

• High efficiency cooling fan

• High capacity flow, resulting in

more uniform cooling

• Unique touch screen computer makes

the machine simple and easy to operate

• Superior quality at low cost

 

Safe storage of grain – and application of chilling

 

If grain is chilled to a temperature below 16 deg. C, then unwanted biologic activity will be stalled

and bug procreation will stop. This is the reason why chilling has become so popular.

Depending on the specific application grain storers normally choose to chill their stored grain to temperatures between 8 and 16 deg. C, and in some cases much lower. Aeration with “natural means” (ambient dry and cool air) that is vented trough the grain is of course the cheapest way to maintain grain in a safe and cool condition. However in some cases grain infestation occurs to a larger degree, and in tropical areas and during summers in temperate climates it is sometimes necessary to cool the grain with a chiller.

Some reasons for this could be:

• to coolthe grain as a safety precaution

• to stop emerging infestation at an early stage by cooling it down (insect and fungus growth is

very limited at low temperatures)

• in cases of heavy infestation sometimes fumigation is first used to eliminate as much biologic

activity as possible (this is best done at high temperature), and then chilling the grain

• even when grain is stored for only a short period of time ( 2 – 6 weeks) it may also be a good

idea to chill it in order to secure the quality, this applies specifically to parboiled rice and

other partially processed grains and feeds
