Refrigerating devices: cooling preservation with grain cooling unit
Grain is one of our most important staple foods. It is cultivated and harvested with great care. Proper storage must be ensured to maintain quality and avoid loss of volume.
Spoilage of freshly-harvested grain is caused by self-heating of the grain due to cellular respiration. Carbon dioxide, water, and heat are released through cellular respiration. Self-heating depends on grain moisture and grain temperature. The result is loss of dry matter, as well as development of microbes, mildew, and insect feeding, e.g. through the grain weevil.
Cooling of grain to below 13 ° C with the Granifirgor grain cooling device
These losses can be effectively prevented by cooling to under 13°C. Cooling preservation is the most natural method for limiting quality and quantity losses associated with grain storage. Chemical additives are not required. Moreover, cooling preservation brings further economic advantages that should be of interest to any storage facility.
