New Automatic Aeration Control For Grain Bins
"Grain bin monitors tell you if hot spots are developing but they don't do anything on their own to solve the problem. Our new Automatic Aeration Control does," says Tom Kuutti, president of OT Industries, of St. Paul, Minn. "If there's a problem such as a hot spot developing the control automatically senses the problem and turns on aeration fans."
You simply set the unit to the desired ranges for temperature and humidity. If any one of several sensors located inside the bin detect a reading outside of the pre-determined range, aeration fans automatically start. When both temperature and humidity return to-within the set-point limits, the fans are automatically turned off. A built-in hour meter automatically records operating time of the blower fans so you know how much aeration activity there's been. Simple monitoring and electrical hookup makes the unit easy to move from one bin location to another, says Kuutti.
Sells for $699. Comes with 5 sensor probes for inside the bin and automatically controls up to four blower fans.
