The development of a microclimate system for potato container storage in a frameless building with a capacity of 10 000 tons.

Client

“Magnit” is one of the largest retailers in Russia.

Solution

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.

Distinguishing features

Operational stages:

  • Project development
  • Purchase of equipment and materials
  • Delivery
  • Installation
  • Start-up and adjustment operations

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.
