Grain Silos - Gas Sealed
  
      

Gas Sealed Grain Silos

APPLICATIONS

Grain silos which are gas sealed are recommended for the long term storage of grain. Gas sealed grain silos protect stored grain by ensuring that effective phosphine or controlled atmosphere fumigation of insect pests can be achieved.

Gas tight storage can be used as a “hospital” silo for pest eradication of infested grain from non sealed existing storage.

For further information on the importance of gas sealed silos in the drive to control insects and maintain grain free of chemical residue, speak to one of our friendly staff.
