Keep Your Seed Store Dry
STORING SEEDS AT A LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY CONSERVES ENERGY, EXTENDS SEED LIFE, PREVENTS STORAGE LOSSES AND SAVES YOU MONEY
Seed moisture and storage temperature are the most important factors in determining how long seed can be stored. The drier the seeds are, the longer they can be stored. Relative humidity influences the moisture content of seed if it is not stored in moisture-proof containers. This is as seeds are hygroscopic, which means they pick up moisture from the air and release moisture to the air. The seeds adjust their moisture by trying to reach equilibrium with the relative humidity of the surrounding air.
SOLUTION: KEEP THE AIR SURROUNDING THE SEEDS DRY
Air Solutions are New Zealand's leading supplier of desiccant dehumidification equipment. Desiccant dehumidifiers keep the air dry around the seeds - so that they cannot absorb excess moisture that leads to fungus growth. Desiccant dehumidifiers achieve low humidity levels in seed stores by absorbing the moisture from the air as a vapour. There are no cooling coils to freeze, no condensate to drain and the desiccant that absorbs the moisture becomes even more efficient in cold weather. This means you can specify the level of RH you need to protect your investment.
Extend Storage Life
Triple storage life in a low humidity environment.
Ensure Safe Cold Storage
Air Solutions provide dehumidifiers that work at high and low temperatures so you can store seeds at any condition without having to worry about high humidity.
Avoid Costly Repackaging
Desiccant type dehumidifers prevent moisture regain, hence, there is no need to invest the time and money to repackage seeds in vapour-tight bags.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Dehumidifiers reduce microbiological growth and provide a dryer, healthier and more comfortable working environment for employees
