GRANIFRIGOR Grain Cooling
GRANIFRIGOR™ grain cooler units are the perfect way to deliver guaranteed cooling results completely independent of weather conditions. Grain cooling units use refrigeration and dehumidification technology to ensure that grain stored in a silo or on a ventilated floor can be quickly and cost effectively cooled.
The GRANIFRIGOR™ grain cooler units have been manufactured in Germany since 1963 by refrigeration specialists FrigorTec. The series is modular in design, enabling options for sound insulation, remote sensors, forklift slots and other features depending on your needs. A natural method of cooling for the conservation of grain and oilseeds. McArthur Agriculture supply grain cooler units with a capacity to cool up to 400 tonnes of store grain per day.
The wide range of GRANIFRIGOR™ grain coolers and general products supplied by McArthur Agriculture have been developed by generations of specialists, giving you confidence that you are investing in world market leading technology when purchasing a GRANIFRIGOR ™ grain cooler unit.

Why Grain Cooling Is Important
Once grain is dry temperatures must be reduced as quickly as possible to avoid spoilage. The main causes of spoilage in stored grain are fungi, insects and mites. Temperatures above 15°C increase the risk of insect and mite populations developing.The HGCA Grain storage guide advises grain cooling should commence as soon as the grain comes into store.
GRANIFRIGOR™ grain cooling units can cool crop to below 12°C in a matter of days independently of weather conditions.
The GRANIFRIGOR™ grain cooling units refrigeration and dehumidification technology ensure that grain stored in a silo or on a ventilated floor can be cooled to below 12°C regardless of weather conditions.
Prompt cooling protects against development of insects, microbes and fungi. Once the crop is cool it remains cool ensuring long term storage without quality losses.
When a GRANIFRIGOR™ grain cooling unit is used no costly expenditure on fumigation or other chemical treatments is required, drying costs are reduced and respiratory.
