Grain Cooling Units
No more waiting for specific weather temperature and humidity conditions to cool your grain silos with the conventional ventilation systems. You can run the TKS Series Grain Dryers (Grain Cooling) to store or stock your grain with specifically required conditions in your silos even under dessert heat or tropical rains. TKS series help you protect your products such as cereal, soy, rice from losses caused by overheating, molding, infestation, and drying.
Grain has been one of the most important food sources for thousands of years. It is grown and harvested with care. Unconsumed excess grains are stored in silos and when necessary, grain needs are met from these silos. The temperature and humidity values of the grain in the silo must be kept under control in order to keep the grain intact for a long time in the silos and to protect it from insect and mold fungi that damage the grain. In order to preserve the nutritional value of the grain and to keep the moisture value in the grain within the targeted value ranges, cooling is necessary. Thanks to the cooling process performed with TKS Grain Cooling Units designed and produced by TMS Industrial Cooling Industry and Trade Inc., the temperature and humidity in the silo are kept under control and grain; stored for a long time in fresh and healthy environments.

A grain cooler is a specialized type of industrial air conditioning system that is used to cool and preserve grains, such as wheat, corn, and rice, after they have been harvested. These coolers are used to protect the grains from damage caused by moisture, insects, and fungi, which can lead to spoilage and reduced quality.
Grain coolers typically use a refrigeration system to cool the grains to a specific temperature and humidity level. The cooled air is circulated through the grain storage area using fans, which helps to evenly distribute the cool air and prevent hot spots from forming. Some grain coolers also incorporate moisture control systems to remove excess moisture from the air and prevent condensation from forming on the grains.
Grain coolers are commonly used in agriculture and food processing industries, where the quality and preservation of grains is critical. They are also used in grain storage facilities, such as silos and bins, to maintain the quality of stored grains over an extended period of time.
There are several reasons why a grain cooling unit may be used in agriculture and food processing industries. Here are some of the main benefits:
- Preserve grain quality: When grain is harvested, it typically has a high temperature and moisture content, which can lead to spoilage and reduced quality if not properly managed. Grain cooling units help to quickly cool the grain to a safe storage temperature and reduce the moisture content, which helps to preserve the quality of the grain.
- Prevent insect and fungal growth: Insects and fungi can thrive in warm and moist grain storage environments, which can lead to grain damage and reduced quality. Grain cooling units help to create a cool and dry environment that is less conducive to insect and fungal growth.
- Extend grain storage life: Properly cooled and dried grain can be stored for longer periods of time without deteriorating in quality. Grain cooling units help to extend the storage life of grain, which can be important for managing inventory and optimizing pricing and sales.
- Reduce energy costs: Grain cooling units are often more energy-efficient than other types of grain storage cooling systems. By using less energy to cool the grain, these units can help to reduce energy costs and improve the profitability of grain storage operations.
Overall, grain cooling units are an important tool for maintaining the quality and safety of grain during storage and transportation, and can help to ensure a reliable and sustainable food supply.
