There are potato storage for sale on Etsy, and they cost $ on average. The control system should have accurate measurement of the potato temperature, the plenum temperature and relative humidity, and for processing potatoes, the storage carbon dioxide levels.

These values should be easy to access as decisions are made on the status of the crop in storage and the operation of the ventilation system. POTATO STORAGE VENTILATION. Cooling air temperature and relative humidity Potato cooling should be done with air that is not too cold relative to the potato pile temperature.

Cool outside air can dry out the potato pile when it is a lot cooler than the potato temperature even when it is saturated with moisture (when it is foggy or raining. Bulk storage with controlled floor ventilation is probably the most used storage system for, long day onions and mature potatoes.

This system has forced ventilation. Book Accessories wooden potato veggie & onion bin / vegetable storage / potato bin / onion bin / vegetable box wooden potato and onion bin three compartments divided for Potatoes and Onion Storage with decorative air ventilation holes CICILIAS.

For fresh market potatoes, a temperature of 40° F. is recommended. Seed potatoes may be stored at slightly lower temperatures (38° to 40° F.) for better weight loss and sprout control.

HUMIDITY. A storage system which only uses lateral ventilation with air-mix units, is the most economical storage system. Box storage with lateral ventilation, using air-mix units. By " lateral ventilation ", we mean moving air around the (open) storage boxes, not forcing it between the potatoes and onions.

Shim available to make transition from round duct to flat duct. Suitable for 12", 16", 24" PVC pipe. UV resistant corrosion-free. Good ventilation is arguably one of the more important factors in potato storage. Ventilation will create a uniform environment and maintain temperature. It will also supply oxygen for respiration and remove carbon dioxide, the product of respiration.

Poorly designed ventilation systems can cause air to be pulled from and directed to the wrong. This book provides practical and engineering information on potato tuber storage. It includes chapters on post-harvest losses and methods of loss reduction and control, engineering with attention given to insulation and ventilation, and the management and economics of storage.

Appendices supply conversion factors, data on insulation and condensation, psychrometric charts, information on. The highest ventilation rate is required at cool down after harvest, thus the fan capacity is sized to this requirement. In Wisconsin, fans are typically sized at 20 cubic feet per minute (cfm) per ton of potatoes.

Once the potatoes are cooled to storage temperature, the ventilation requirement is. Potato storage: technology and practice: proceedings of an international symposium, June, Michigan State University, E.

Cool, humid ventilation is crucial for potatoes in bins versus air-cooled storage rooms. Poor ventilation results in shrinkage, sprouting, and decay. Too much airflow or too little humidity may cause weight loss. Potatoes are usually packed into perforated.

Gather crates. We store our potatoes in open plastic crates on plastic pallets, which allow ventilation but not rotting or holding of fungal spores. Like most root vegetables, potatoes store better if they are not washed before storage. In summer we stack the crates of harvested potatoes under tree near the cellar the first night, to lose some.Ventilation of potato stores is discussed with reference to forced ventilation and end use of potatoes.

Ventilation components are outlined, covering fans, shafts, channels for bulk stores, ventilation of large crates (1 t capacity), flaps and controllers.
