Tolsma-Grisnich show storage innovation at Agritechnica

Tolsma-Grisnich show storage innovation at Agritechnica

At the Agritechnica, The Tolsma-Grisnich Group presents several innovations of its Vision Control climate computer for (potato) storage.

November 2, 2015
From the 8th to the 14th of November, Agritechnica in Hanover will be a must for anyone interested in global innovations in mechanisation.

Tolsma-Grisnich (Hall 24, stand A10) is a regular exhibitor at this fair.

In addition to new modules for our Vision Control storage computer (Energy Management and Weather in Control) Tolsma-Grisnich will be showcasing the Samro stone and clod separator, its in-house developed Track & Trace system for box storage, the Fresh Box, and its innovative washing installations.

Vision Control innovations

Tolsma-Grisnich's user-friendly Vision Control climate computer was designed to control the climate in storage facilities for potatoes, onions, carrots etc. Within this process, the Vision Control system regulates, among other things, fans, hatches, mechanical cooling units and stoves on the basis of measured temperature, RH and CO2.

This means control is totally focused on product quality and optimum storage efficiency.

Vision Control: Energy management

Vision Control: Energy Management Extension

In addition to being large-scale consumers, agricultural businesses also increasingly act as energy producers and suppliers: biogas, wind and solar energy are just some examples.

The Energy Management module on the new generation Vision Control storage computers from Tolsma-Grisnich enables optimum alignment of energy supply and demand within a business.

This makes it possible to make significant savings on both fixed (connection and standing charges) and variable costs.

Vision Control: Weather in Control extension

Vision Control: Weather in Control module

In addition, Vision Control can be extended with the Weather in Control module, which makes it possible to take the weather forecast into account as much as possible when ventilating stored products.

This is advantageous in terms of storage efficiency (higher quality, lower energy costs).

Vision Control: Industry 4.0

The Energy Management and Weather in Control modules fall within Industry 4.0.

Based on this innovative vision, an intelligent combination of all available data is used within the Vision Control system for storage control.

In terms of product storage these data are:

  • prognosis of progress (temperature and humidity) in the batch stored
  • current weather forecast
  • expected energy yield and needs of the business

TG Samro stone and clod separator

Tolsma Grisnich Samro Stone and Clod Separator

Meticulous separation of stones and clods without any negative impact on capacity but yielding a significant labour saving at the same time – this can be achieved with the TG Samro.

You will be able to watch live demonstrations of this machine at Agritechnica. Based on simple sensor technology, the machine separates stones and clods from a dry product flow.

The TG Samro can either be used as a stand-alone unit or as part of a comprehensive processing line.

Tolsma Track & Trace

Easily locate and keep track of any box in box storage with Tolsma Track and Trace

Tolsma Track & Trace gives you access to all the current information about the contents and position of stored boxes at a glance.

This provides a unique overview of storage as well as optimising business management and ensuring hygiene within the business. Track & Trace uses automated box registration and is suitable for box storage and grading businesses. In addition, Track & Trace makes for a significant labour saving.

The benefits of Track & Trace are obvious: increased efficiency of the logistic process, less time-consuming administration and savings on operational costs because human error is avoided.

Tolsma Fresh Box

Tolsma Fresh Box

The Fresh Box ensures that the air within the storage facility is refreshed at the right time, so product quality is improved. The Tolsma Fresh Box also saves energy and avoids excess humidity during warm spells and in hot climates.

The Fresh Box controls the fully automatic intake of warm fresh air from outside to the interior, the air is cooled and CO2 is removed to the outside.

This means that air is refreshed in an energy-efficient manner and temperature differences are kept to a minimum.

TG innovative washing installations

Tolsma-Grisnich Wet Cleaning Technology

Our range of stone, haulm and clod separators, clay/salt baths, drum washers, felt driers and combi machines is now complete!

Tolsma-Grisnich provides a wide range of machines for the cleaning and drying of agricultural products.

The machines feature intelligent sensor technology and control techniques for reduced energy and water consumption.

Box handling systems

The TG Automatic Box filler-18 is capable of stacking, de-stacking and filling empty boxes fully automatically.

Tolsma-Grisnich offers also the automatic box emptying system, which can automatically de-stack and empty filled boxes as well as re-stacking the empty boxes.

The box handling systems reduce the number of forklift truck movements by 40% and result in a significant saving in workload.
