AIR TREATMENT FOR RICE SILO
| Rice Business has taken another dimension in Thailand with the implementation of this project, known to be one
of the Largest Rice Mills in Asia. It is located in Central
Thailand where most of the country's Rice is being grown.
As far as the Storage is concerned, the latest state-of-the-art
Silos have been selected and each of them can store up
to 6,000 Tons of Rice. Coming right from the paddy fields,
this Rice must be preserved properly in order to avoid
Fungi (Mold) and Bacteria Growth under our Tropical Conditions.
Thus great care has been taken to treat it well with a
Centralized Air Treatment System.
As a matter of fact,
every of the 15 silos is controlled from a computer and
Temperature inside is monitored by not less than 41 Sensors,
down to levels as low as 12 degrees Celsius and with a
Equilibrium Relative Humidity below 65%. The Cooling is
done through Air Handling Units taking in 100% Fresh Air
as no recirculation is possible. Inside this unit, two
Direct Expansion Coils allow a Double Step Cooling, while
Dehumidification is carried out by a Heating Coil. The
latter is being directly fed from the Condensing Units,
using the Super Heat from the Refrigerant Cycle and thus
does not require extra power to operate.
As Environment is also a concern, Proper Filtration takes
place on the Air Entry and Sound Absorbing Baffles are
also part of the design. The Clean, Chilled and Dry Air
is then being blown from the bottom of the Silos by means
of very powerful Centrifugal Fans, enabling the Air to
go up through 20 meters of Rice layers.
It can take up to ten days to properly treat the whole
Silo, when it is full of Rice.
