“The ideal storage conditions, all the time”
The consumption of potatoes, vegetables and fruit is becoming less dependent on seasonal or local demand. To cater for increasing all-year-round demand and availability of products such as potatoes, onions and carrots, harvests are now stored in large-scale in storage facilities. Flower bulb producers and exporters also make extensive use of storage facilities in order to balance supply and demand.
Precision control of the climate inside the storage facility is essential for the large-scale storage of bulbs and tuber crops. Advanced climate computers provide the ideal solution for monitoring storage areas with precision and accuracy. Ridder has developed special drive systems that ensure accurate and reliable control over ventilation in storage facilities. Ridder’s solutions play a crucial role in creating the ideal storage climate and help to guarantee crop quality.
In order to store crops successfully over longer periods and on a large scale, it is vital to regulate the climate to provide the ideal storage conditions. To do this, you need complete control over the storage conditions. Ridder's drive systems give you exactly this, ensuring the ideal ventilation and air quality: air temperature and humidity levels can be regulated with unprecedented accuracy, so that your crops can be stored and dried in a controlled environment. Mould and pathogens do not stand a chance.
We work closely with the developers of crop-storage systems and installers. They are involved in developing new systems so that together we can provide effective customized solutions.

We specialize in drive technology. Ridder has a vast pool of knowledge and experience to draw on when it comes to creating the right drive system for any type of crop store, anywhere in the world.
The right mixture of air is required in order to dry the crops internally. Humid air must be introduced in a controlled manner, possibly controlled using a storage computer. Incoming air is then retained in a pressure chamber with a mixing unit, where it is brought to the right temperature and humidity level.
Ridder has developed special intake valve drive systems based on RW motor gearboxes, combined with rack drives.
Ridder has developed a number of systems specifically for crop storage, which enable you to control the outlet valves to achieve ideal air humidity.
These drive systems are based on RW motor gearboxes combined with rack drives.
