Commissioning and maintenance of grain cooling devices
With the new fully automated controller from FrigorTec, the grain cooling unit operates fully automatically. In addition to correct commissioning and settings, careful maintenance is essential for the best possible cooling performance. We describe these and other aspects clearly in our videos.
For efficient grain cooling and trouble-free operation, it is necessary to correctly prepare and set the grain cooling device. Careful maintenance also helps to maintain the performance of the device in the long term.
In our video we explain the points that should be considered when commissioning a grain cooling device. The setting of cooling temperature, stored goods, moisture content and storage for fully automated operation are also explained. In addition to the maintenance of the heat exchanger and the air intake filter, you will find out how to deal with any faults.
The GRANIFRIGOR™ Europe range of grain cooling units are performance- and energy consumption-optimised for the temperature and humidity of European temperate conditions.
The GRANIFRIGOR™ Subtropic grain cooling units are performance- and energy consumption-optimised for the temperature and humidity of the subtropical climate with tropical summers and non-tropical winters.
The GRANIFRIGOR™ Tropic grain cooling units are performance- and energy consumption- optimised for the temperature and humidity of the tropical climate.
The special grain cooling units for hot dry countries of the GRANIFRIGOR™ Desert series are performance- and energy consumption-optimised for hot desert climates.

The best cooling strategy for your grain storage method
Grain can be cold-stored in both floor-level stores and silos. However cooling of the loose grain requires professional air distribution. The grain cooler must also be selected according to requirements. The fully automated control then frees up time for other activities.
How you protect your grain from fungi and pests
The infestation of the grain with pests and the development of secondary fungi must be prevented. It is therefore all the more important to create suboptimal conditions for insect pests and moulds during storage, thereby reducing the risk of spoiling of the grain to a minimum.
Combining grain coolers for a flexible solution
Operators of a grain storage facility with a capacity of 76.000 tonnes are looking for a cooling solution that works independently from the weather. A combination of one permanently installed central GRANIFRIGOR™ cooler and two mobile units proves to be a flexible solution that meets all requirements.
Safe storage conditions no matter the weather
A storage facility from the 1970s was designed for ambient ventilation. The switch to a GRANIFRIGOR™ KK 280 AHY allows for precise cooling in all weather conditions. The new cooling solution also eliminates silo condensation problems and prolongs the storage duration of malting barley.
