The development of a microclimate system for potato container storage in a frameless building with a capacity of 10 000 tons.
“Magnit” is one of the largest retailers in Russia.
In order to enlarge useful space and reduce load on the axial flow fans, non-standard valves were fabricated, thereby providing for the energy-efficiency of the system.
The humidification system was specially designed so that it could be used in a frameless building.
The four storage sections were equipped with a centralized automatic system.
Design engineers and the construction department were in charge of the project, as well as Agrovent specialists in the area of ventilation equipment.
Because the new vegetable-storage buildings were equipped with automatic microclimate control and the old buildings had not been automated, it was suggested to combine all of the items into a single control system.
The previously-built vegetable storage had been implemented with a high-pressure humidification system, which reduced the level of drying during the entire storage period.
