Crop Storage

Supporting your hard work by creating optimal conditions for crop storage.

We can design and supply flexible, efficient ventilation and control products to ensure the environment is perfect for your crops.

Our products provide flexibility in environmental control within crop storage units to keep the produce in first class condition.

Produce must be in optimum condition to achieve premium returns. It is essential when storing produce to maintain optimal climate conditions.

Crop storage produces high quantities of heat which, along with excess humidity, needs to be removed to prevent premature germination and rodent infestation. Hydor can design and supply efficient ventilation and control products to ensure the environment is perfect for the crop.

Hydor fans and systems can be used in conjunction with drying and cooling fans, to improve overall conditions by providing a simple solution to eradicate heat moisture.

Crop Storage Applications

Stirrer Store - Temperature Drying

The hot air rises above the crop, at temperatures of around 30°C with very high humidity level. Condensation forms and clings to the metal purlins and drops back onto the grain stored, providing the perfect environment for premature germination or the crop condition deteriorates.

Crop Store - Drying & Cooling

This operation removes the warm air and aids the cooling and drying process, which in turn eliminates the condensation and reduces the operational time of the pedestal fans, thus saving energy.

Roof Extract

Humidity generated by the warmth in the crop (there is no artificial heating), causes condensation to form on the fittings and moisture drops back down resulting in germination or the crop condition deteriorating.

Drying

This situation is commonly found in stores housing root crop such as carrots and potatoes. Humid warm air collects in the ceiling void, forming condensation on fittings and causing moisture to drop back down onto the crop, resulting in germination or the crop condition deteriorating.
