Plug&Cool Fans Keep Stored Grain Safe
Slotted pedestals fitted with cooling fans provide a less expensive option for keeping stored grain cool with the Plug&Cool system from Gibbons Engineering Group Ltd. in Essex, UK.
  The polypropylene pedestals are placed in the storage area before the grain is harvested. Then after the grain fills the area up to the 13-ft. mark, high-powered grain cooling fans are placed on the pedestals.
  “When switched on, the fans will pull the hot air within the grain pile, through the air slots in the pedestal and expel the warm air out of the fan and away from the grain,” says Rael Bearman, marketing manager for Plug&Cool. “The combination of pedestals and grain cooling fans cool crops quickly to prevent insects, conserve quality, reduce waste, and meet crop assurance requirements.”
  The pedestal perforations, 5 by .14 in., are large enough to cool without being blocked by grain. Customers use the fans for crops such as cereal and oilseeds, wheat, barley and rape oilseed.
  With more than 30 years of manufacturing cooling fans, Plug&Cool is backed with a 5-year manufacturer’s guarantee. The fans are wired for single-phase or three-phase plugs.
  “The poly pedestals are incredibly durable compared with others on the market, so once you invest in them, they’ll last a lifetime. The fans are energy efficient, durable, and the most cost-effective way to cool grain in any sized grain store,” Bearman says. The system can also be used in grain bins, with the addition of a smaller Airspear fan.
  The UK company ships all over the world. Bundled kits start at $900.
