What Fan Should I Buy?

It’s that time of year again, when your pedestals are in place, your grain is in the store, and it now needs to be maintained.

Harvest is nearly over; you can almost relax before the next year’s cycle begins. Or can you?

Any savvy farmer knows it is often better to sit on their grain. The markets have been wild the past year, and it has proven that it may be financially beneficial to wait to sell your grain.

To see maximum profits, you need to cool your grain to maintain its quality or risk it spoiling*.

One of our most common questions is ‘what sized fan do I need?’.

Often this answer depends on the size of your barn, how much grain you yield, or what you are cooling.

We stock a huge range of fans to suit your needs at Plug&Cool. As our background is in Engineering, we can make sure we create the best fans on the market.

1.1kw – Perfect for most farms. This is our standard fan which works well for small to medium-sized grain stores, assuming you are spacing out your pedestals at least 3 meters away from your barn walls, then 6 meters apart from each other.

1.5kw – This fan is for people who want a bit of extra cooling power than a 1.1kw, but do not need the full power of a 2.2kw. It can be used up in grain from 4.5m to 12m deep, depending on the spacing of pedestals.

2.2kw – Need to cool a bigger than average grain pile? Or is your grain hot to touch and needs cooling immediately? Use our 2.2kw range. These mega fans work quickly and effectively.

Our fans are built to last harvest after harvest. Check out our bundle deals here or give Lee a call (01621 868 138) to discuss which fans will suit your farm.
