From 100 tonnes to 22,000 tonnes, grain pedestals and fans will cool and condition grain in store and form part of a professional crop storage system.
The purpose of grain aeration is to maintain a consistent relationship between grain temperature and outside weather conditions that could cause product deterioration through fluctuating temperatures.
A McArthur Agriculture grain pedestal system, manufactured by Martin Lishman, allows you to change the temperature of your stored grain using outside air that is a different temperature than the grain. Most of the time the grain will be cooled but there may be situations where you want to raise the grain’s temperature. The goal of grain aeration management therefore, is to change the temperature of the stored product economically, efficiently and to the benefit of the final product.
Grain pedestals are free-standing, metal, vertical ventilation ducts that are fitted with a centrifugal fan that sucks air through grain, cooling it to conserve quality. Any combinable crop can be cooled directly off the grain drier, improving daily output and making grain safe for long-term storage. Grain aerators from McArthur Agriculture can be fitted as part of a bespoke grain processing system or turnkey solution.
PEDESTALS WORK BEST IN DEEP GRAIN
POWERFUL LOW VOLUME FANS
