Martin Lishman Ambient Humidity & Temperature Mesaurement
It is important to regularly measure the air inside the grain store if you are ventilating with Pile-Dry Pedestals, or the outside air if you are blowing air in from the outside using underfloor ducts.
Measurements should be taken when fans are operating and at the beginning and end of each day when ambient conditions can change quite rapidly in order to avoid ventilating with unsuitable air.
Knowing the humidity of the air that will be used for drying grain is essential to ensure that drying targets are reached as quickly and energy-efficiently as possible.
Damp air will not increase grain moisture, but it will reduce the efficiency of drying systems if damp air is allowed to enter the grain bulk.
