DE Engineers have developed a very sophisticated but low cost aeration controller (the ‘Safegrain 8”) here in WA for Australian farmers, produce our own fans and have also designed a unique ducting system “Aeroduct” which pushes air down to the bottom of the cone and up the other side for increased benefit.
There are benefits and disadvantages to all grain storage systems – aeration is recommended by grain storage experts as an aerated silo which under optimal ambient temperature and humidity conditions will knock down grain temperature from around 35 degrees at harvest, then maintain the grain by forcing in only cool, dry air (below 80% humidity).
DE Engineers unique aeration ducting is specially designed to push air to the bottom of the silo to ensure all of the stored grain is kept in optimum condition.
Each 100 series fan can aerate up to 100t of grain storage and are made by DE Engineers specifically for silo aeration.
Start-boxes have 12 volt relays to start the fans from the controller output, Earth leakage and lightning-proof breakers for maximum safety.
The Safe Grain 8 controller is also available in 12 volt with remote start to operate a 240v generator when required so you can maintain grain quality where there is no mains power available.
Don’t let damp air ruin your silos. Every night when your silo cools, it draws in air from outside and if this is damp it will condense inside your silo ruining grain and corroding silo walls.
Note the corrosion to the walls caused by the damp grain and the top ring where there was no grain is still OK. This was a near new 109t silo that was filled with grain at harvest that possibly had a little too much moisture that condensed to the silo roof then ran down the silo walls.
