FREESTANDING CONCRETE GRAIN WALLS
Freestanding, concrete grain walls are designed to minimise the hassle of storing bulk materials such as grain, potatoes and sugar beet. Concrete grain walls are the optimum shape and profile for the storage of grain, aggregates, solid fuels and other materials whilst, the bunker wall is suitable for storage of many bulk materials.
Forklift recesses allow for easy repositioning of concrete grain walls, and the unique shape means it is load bearing in both directions and allows the free flow of material. A freestanding grain wall from McArthur Agriculture allows for easy separation of product before transportation to a grain silo or grain handling equipment. Our freestanding concrete grain walls are built to stand the test of time and are suitable for the needs of an ever-changing agricultural environment.

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.

Do You Meet HGCA Cooling Guidelines?
Grain Cooling Targets
|Within 2 weeks||Cool to below 15°C||To prevent saw-toothed grain beetles completing their life cycle|
|Within 3-4 months||Cool to below 12°C||To prevent grain weevils completing their life cycle|
|By end-December||Cool to below 5°C (except malting barley)||To kill surviving insects and prevent mites increasing|
