POST-HARVEST

Our Native Industry

 

For almost 60 years, Agri-Stor has innovated your Post-Harvest Solutions with University-based Research and years of applied data. We were the reason Post Harvest began. And you’ll be the reason why we continue on.

SYSTEMS

BULK STORAGE

By far – the most popular storage design for holding Raw Product. Applications include Process, Fresh Market, and Seed Growers. Design options include Internal or External Fan houses. Fan houses are perfect for sending and returning air as well as balancing and holding interior climate. Air distributed through the plenum has two purposes; pressurize the building and  carrying climate elements to the product. Reactive product management can happen sufficiently at the duct level making storage management specific, targeting trouble areas. Chippers and Process Growers can appreciate more targeted management. Contact Agri-Stor for a consultation with this design.

BOX STORAGE

Letterbox design is perfect for Box or Crate Storage and is an extremely affordable option compared to Box or Bulk Air Floors. Our first Letterbox Storage was designed in 1965. Designed like a segmented wall to transfer letters into, air is distributed through designed air slots and carried to the crated products. Agri-Stor’s Post Harvest design is always done with the end product goals in mind.  Ventilation – or more specifically – fans… are specified to perform at the level they are designed to.  That’s not good enough for Agri-Stor…our air handling equipment is Gellert’s proprietary equipment and is AMCA Certified.  AMCA published performance ratings are reliable and accurate – meaning you are getting what you paid for.

BIN STORAGE

Bin Storage offers at least two advantages; first a material handling advantage if it’s crates or boxes. Second – and just as important – is the mechanically zoned option with more specific climate distribution. Seed and Variety Growers can appreciate the increases in pack-out but arguably the automated management that zoned control can bring to smaller, more remote locations. In this case, specialty organic market potatoes may benefit from both the material handling and zoned mechanical benefits! Contact Agri-Stor for a consultation for designs that that increase pack-out capabilities as it relates to this design.
