Hotspots In Your Grain Pile?

Your grain is in store, and your fans and pedestals are working to cool the grain to the perfect temperature. However, it’s around this time of year that hotspots will start appearing in your grain pile. These hotpots can damage your grain and lead to claims when you eventually sell.

Mites and other nasties can build up in these hotspots, so it is important to cool them quickly. But it’s too late to move your pedestals once the grain is in storage. This is why it is always handy to have some of the Plug&Cool® Airspear® range handy.

Plug&Cool® sell two types of Airspear®: the traditional Airspear®, and the Airspear® Max. Each product comes with a 2.1m galvanised steel grain spear, and a fan (these are also sold separately). The Airspear® uses a 130w fan; it is lightweight, easy to use, and gets to work quickly. This is our most popular Airspear, it gets hotspots cooled fast. The tapered spigot means no loss of suction, so the fan can work effectively.

The Airspear® Max uses a 1.1kw fan – so it has the power of a pedestal but the portability of a grain spear. The Airspear® Max has been specifically designed for grain piles that need that extra cooling boost. Whether you need to get a large hotspot cooled fast, or you have undercounted how many pedestals you need – the Airspear® Max will suit you.

Our fans are made with the best quality aluminium casings, lasting year after year. We have been making agricultural fans for nearly 30 years, so we know the importance that durability and quality have. Grain cooling equipment needs to be able to withstand the bumps of loading and unloading. Both fans come with a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty, giving you peace of mind.

We know hotspots need to be cooled urgently. That is why we offer next-day delivery on all Airspear® or Airspear® Max orders. So, you can get your grain to the perfect temperature as quickly as possible.
