Crop Systems - SmartStor

Helping to combat rising crop storage costs

Crop Systems Ltd says it has always pushed the limits of store control to enable cost savings, using over25 years of accrued store data to develop its SmartStor controller.

The controller has enabled Crop Systems Ltd to put this knowledge and information at its customers’  fingertips, utilising smart defrosting and multiple energysaving features.

Always at the forefront of technology, the company’s latest innovation, SmartSola, has now been launched – giving customers
full control of the solar energy they produce.

Crop Systems Ltd says this revolutionary system can control multiple stores, automatically choosing the store that needs cooling the most. Using Smart optimisation of crop setpoints the
company claims its cost-e ective algorithms will reduce your energy
costs, offering fast returns on investments.

SmartSola can be incorporated into existing stores, regardless of
manufacturer or age. One of the questions Crop Systems Ltd says it gets asked a lot is how the loss of CIPC is changing the design of stores – with the company’s response being: “Quite simply, for us, it isn’t! Our stores have always been designed to be airtight, and we have been installing inverters for the last 22 years giving you optimum air speeds throughout. Therefore, in conjunction with SmartStor auto control of fans, the use of alternative sprout suppressant treatments is straightforward, and fans are matched to the correct fan speed
requirement whilst saving energy.

“We also get asked for help with the many problems, particularly on the older stores and advise our customers to concentrate on their air flow, checking louvres, repairing, adjusting and checking for air leakage on intake louvres; just because you cannot see daylight doesn’t mean they don’t leak between the blades.

“Check around the actual box frames, many were  fitted when the
importance of sealing wasn’t seen as an issue.
“Doors may need adjusting, and/or brush strips  fitted. We oversee
all these services and will gladly just advise, or offer a full store
evaluation service along with fixed price servicing.
