Westeel has introduced an advancement in grain storage: its new EasyCheck monitoring system. The most sophisticated and easiest-to-use grain storage monitoring system on the market today, EasyCheck provides the producer with instantaneous digital reporting of both current and historic storage temperature levels, says the company. This allows the producer to finely tune aeration to both achieve and maintain optimum temperature and moisture levels in the bin, providing the best chance of avoiding spoilage and shrinkage to deliver the grain to market in peak condition.

Available for both smooth-walled and corrugated bins, EasyCheck is a two part system that comprises a hand-held monitor and a cable which is hung from the roof with sensors every four feet to profile the temperature of the bin. The hand-held unit features intuitive controls and a large, easy to read display capable of viewing interconnected groups of cables, as well as the complete storage history by table or graph.

Another important benefit of EasyCheck is that the producer can now determine both when and for how long to operate aeration fans. As such, most EasyCheck users find they are able to significantly reduce fan time and electrical costs. The EasyCheck system comes with a recharging kit, a carrying case and a PC connection for downloading of information to a computer.
