Chilled Storage Hire- The Challenge

This was a really nice job for a great customer on the Island of Jersey.

Jersey Royal were experiencing a problem with seed potatoes sprouting early. This causes issues when planting mechanically- the sprouts are knocked-off setting the growing cycles back and ultimately effecting the yield.

Critically, keeping the potatoes dormant can literally be the difference between profit and loss.

The Solution

Chilled storage hire was required in three areas with a target temperature was specified at 2 Degrees.

I view of this, we recommended cooling systems comprising of ACR LT50 low temperature air handlers with full defrost controls and low temperature water chillers running a Glycol mixed water solution.

The AHU’s were mounted at high level to give good coverage to the densely packed areas.

Summary

Installed for a total of 6 months, chilled storage hire project achieved the customers target temperatures- sprouting was completely stopped, setting the potatoes for successful planting and high yields.

 

A great result for everyone….
