We design and manufacture crop storage solutions for farmers all over the world, having refined our product over many years for the demanding British & Irish growers. All potato farmers are tortured by price fluctuations and unpredictable weather. Traditionally crop is left in the ground until required. A strategy that involves multiple harvesting in poor ground conditions incurring fuel cost and tuber damage.
“Your Coldstore saved my business this year, I’m still selling stuff out of it which would have needed dumped in March.”
– Wilson Fulton, Strabane, Ulster Farmers Union
One of our solutions for small scale growers is a simple unit that will store their potatoes in an insulated shed through to summer. Just think, all of the crop harvested in the dry, no more winter digging, customers supplied all year round – a cash return on the whole crop. And more than all these – the unit heats the grading shed too! All costing much less than you would imagine.
Requiring only a single phase supply, our less intensive farmers can now store for market like the big growers with a compact refrigeration unit. Supplied ready to run, specially designed Magdek Crop Storage™, will maintain high humidity and low holding temperature allowing you to cool and keep long term up to 100 Tonnes of vegetables.
Our latest electronic control system protects the crop and maintains a perfect environment in your store. Fitted through an opening in the potato storage unit wall, the cooler runs off a 16Amp single phase electrical supply.
Magdek Crop Storage™ units can be ganged together for larger capacity stores and offer ambient cooling or refrigeration and rapid or extended cooling capabilities for bulk or boxed crops.
40KW cooling coil in a bulk store, this assists cool down at harvest and helps extend storage at the end of the season for improved pricing.
External cooling system designed to cool without the need for complicated defrosting.
