Pallet storage units are suitable for storing potatoes, fruit and vegetables. Pallet storage is preferable to many products, because the pressure on the bottom of the pallet is much smaller than that of bulk storage. Pallets also provide great flexibility and allow for the storage of different varieties in one storage room. Agroel recommends its Integrated Mixing Chambers (ISK) – an affordable climate control system for these types of warehouses.
AGROEL ISK INTEGRATED MIXING CHAMBERS
An integrated mixing chamber can work in a variety of modes: an ambient ventilation mode using outdoor air for cooling, a refrigeration mode or a combination of the two modes. Significantly lower operation costs of ambient ventilation are arguments for combined ventilation and refrigaration systems, compared with storage facilities equipped only with a refrigeration system. Cool air (either ambient, mixed or refrigerated) is blown by the ISK above the top pallets, and then it drops by it’s own weight in spaces between pallets. The so-called „top ventilation“ limits water condensation in the top pallets and therefore significantly reduces the risk of storage diseases. ISK units supply large amounts of air in high velocity, sufficient for evenly covering the whole storage volume.
Depending on installed equipment, the ISKs can work in several modes:
