Tips for Preventing Grain Dryer Fires on Irish Farms

Huge Tractors, Giant Combines and Flashing Beacons can mean only one thing, its that time of year again, late summer when Irish Farmers set about harvesting their summer crops and transporting them to bulk storage in preparation for drying.

Grain dryer fires are one of the most significant risks a grain handling operation can face. The devastating results of a fire can include death, serious injury, financial loss, property damage, business interruption and production downtime. 

ICS deal with a number of these type of agricultural fires every year, and we’ve become very knowledgeable about the circumstances that give rise to and increase the risk of a fire breaking out in the first instance.

We’ve put together a few simple tips that can help reduce the risk of fire to your Grain Dryer;

  • Get your drying equipment regularly serviced by a competent engineer/Supplier.
  • Check thermostats, temperature settings and automatic shut-off devices, and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • All surfaces on which dust, grain or other materials can collect should be cleaned out regularly- Records should be maintained, and checklists should be followed.
  • Keep the area around the dryer clear of grain and other combustible material.
  • Keep the airflow to the furnace free from dust, chaff and straw.
  • Don’t leave plant running unattended for extended periods.
  • ‘No smoking’ rules must be strictly enforced.
  • Allow the dried grain to cool to ambient temperature prior to any further processing or storage – this will reduce the chance of self-heating.
  • Make sure that staff know how to isolate equipment and what to do in the event of a fire- Correct training
  • Suitable fire extinguishers should be available to fight any fire (Class B rated for oil-fired furnaces and CO2 for electrical equipment).
  • Have the address, postcode and grid reference of the grain dryer location to hand, in case you need to call emergency services.
  • Make a farm emergency plan to assist the emergency services – list the hazards, water supplies and access details.

    I contacted Trevor on behalf of an elderly family member... who had a leak resulting in water damage in his house. Trevor reassured me from the very first call that I was doing the right thing by using his service. He was extremely professional and very thorough in his assessment. We didn't have to fill out any hefty paper work or bounce back and forth with the insurance company. Trevor took care of all that. I couldn't believe how quickly it was processed and settled. Amazing work Trevor. We can't thank you enough for the time and effort that you put in. We can concentrate on the repairs now 👍read more

    Trevor Kelly was referred to me by our insurance broker... after complications arose with our claim for water damage to our home. Trevor was not only extremely thorough and experienced with his advice but was also helpful, kind and compassionate. He alleviated so much of the stress endured by the situation by handling absolutely everything for us. Without Trevor's expertise, our claim which was initially declined would never have been approved. His advise was fundamental to the success of our claim, which surpassed all our expectations financially. Thank you so much Trevor for all your wonderful work, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your service to anyone who might need it.read more

Thank you again Trevor for looking after me so very well.read more

Insurers attempted to frustrate the claim, without Trevor's help we would never have been able to navigate the claims process successfully.

    Thanks a million @insurance_claim_solutions_ for looking... after my mam and dad insurance claim after a flood wrecked their bathroom and sitting room. Thank you Trevor for making sure she got fixed up even after the job was finished they would have had no idea how to claim and probably would have left it without claiming, and you took over everything for them. They now have a beautiful wet room which is a godsend to my elderly parents I would highly recommend you in the future and have passed your number on. Thanks again for making a huge difference to their lives greatly appreciated From Antoinetteread more
