Ventilation of silos (flat bottom)
Efficient conditioning of the grain in a silo storage is important to keep a high-quality crop. When it comes to drying of the grain it is important to secure steady strong airflow through the grain.
The system built into the silo can either be a flat perforated bottom which the grain lays on, allowing to blow air into the room between the floor and the perforated bottom. Alternatively, lateral ducts can be placed on the floor making tunnels which distribute the air at the bottom of the silo and thereby releasing the air into the grain.
