Polycool plastic grain pedestals; designed for crop cooling.
Polycool moves air through your floor stored crops to keep them free from storage bugs and moulds.
Under floor grain ventilation is expensive to install, requires annual maintenance and can provide an additional breeding site for crop storage pests such as mites and weevils.
Constructed from tough twin wall plastic, our grain ventilation pedestals are ‘loader proof’ and easy to move. Combined with high output centrifugal fans there is no better way to condition your floor stored crops than with Polycool grain ventilation pedestals.
•Polycool allows unrestricted airflow when cooling grain.
•Metal Pedestals do have a greater slotted area than plastic however this does not achieve any better airflow.
•With over 18000 units on farms across Europe, Polycool works.
When placed in a crop, a lower percentage of the slotted area of the Polycool pedestal is blocked by the crop it is ventilating, so although we have fewer perforations more of them are capable of passing air. The ribbed construction of the Polycool base not only adds strength, it stops the crop from blocking the perforations and allows equal air movement from less open area.
Polycool is available in Standard and Maxi sizes.
Standard Polycool Pedestals are suitable for crop storage depths of 2.6m – 5.5m
We would recommend using our VBW8 fan with this pedestal.
Maxi Polycool Pedestals are suitable for deep crop storage of 5.35m and above.
We would recommend using our VBW9 fan with this pedestal.

Installation tips for Polycool Pedestals
Plastic pedestals manufactured with a 300mm diameter base or a base made from black drainage pipe are inadequate, but our 450mm Polycool base is designed specifically for use in your grain store.

Metal Grain Pedestals - METALCOOL
Metal Grain Pedestals
The base is louvered so no material has been removed, making the pedestal stronger.
There is no need for a filter when used to cool OSR and small seeds. Seeds are less likely to block louvered slots and even air distribution is maintained.
Metalcool are available with 250mm or 300mm diameter bases with top pipes to suit your fan size of either 150mm or 200mm.
Whatever your material preference there is no need to look any further for crop ventilation products than Evans and Pearce.
