Dehumidification in Storage Silos
Storage silos are a vital component of many industries, including agriculture, food processing, and manufacturing. When bulk dry materials like grains, wood pellets, coal, or any other dry products, are kept in storage silos, that material’s number one enemy is moisture. Any dampness can create mold, reduce the product quality, and even result in wastage. At Bry-Air, we offer dehumidification solutions for all types of storage facilities to ensure your peace of mind. Keep reading to learn more about dehumidification in storage silos and how it can benefit you and keep your costs down.
What Is Commercial Dehumidification?
While using storage silos for dry bulk materials is the best option, it does face issues with moisture. In particular, the unoccupied space directly above the dry product (known as the ullage) is prone to condensation problems. Dehumidification is a process by which moisture is removed from the air, the ideal solution in this setting.
Why Is Moisture in Storage Silos Bad?
Many products stored in silos are hygroscopic, meaning they readily absorb and retain moisture. In order to prevent condensation, storage silos require stable humidity. There are a number of problems caused when moisture is introduced.
- Bacteria growing and spoiling the product.
- Products clumping, caking, and adhering to the silo sides.
- Aeration problems resulting in difficulty unloading the product.
- Silo blockage.
- Corrosion, rust, and deterioration of equipment and infrastructure within the silos.
What Is Dehumidification in Storage Silos?
There are a number of mechanical devices, such as vibration pads and hammers, that can help to minimize the effects of product build-up, but they do not address the core issue of moisture. Bry-Air offers innovative dehumidification solutions designed specifically for storage silos. These products function to regulate moisture content by preventing condensation, thus creating a controlled environment that ensures the quality and longevity of the stored product.
