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.

    We recently had the nightmare situation of a burst heating... pipe in the concrete slab of our house. Trevor was recommended to us by a friend and we were delighted we contacted him. From his first survey of the damage to settling the claim took about 4 weeks. Trevor took all the stress out of having to negotiate our way through an insurance claim. He told us at the start to trust him, and we were so glad we did, Thank you Trevor, I will be recommending you in the future.read more

    We had a leak in our Kitchen and Utility Room and contacted... a firm to fix it during discussions with the owner of the Company with regard to making an Insurance Claim he suggested we should employ Insurance Claim Solutions owned by Trevor Kelly and boy are we glad we did. We never realized how much was involved in making a claim. After we met Trevor and discussed his fees etc he then proceeded to do all the work for us with the Insurance Company. He also put us in contact with a Company that will be able to do all the work for us. Trevor negotiated a very fair settlement with the Insurance Company and took so much pressure off us and his fee was very reasonable for all the work involved. Trevor kept us in the loop at all times and we cannot thank him enough. Would absolutely recommend Trevor 100per cent .read more

    We had a flood in our house a year ago. We contacted Trevor... and he assured us that he could still help even though our situation was slightly different in that the damage from the flood only became visible in the last few months. We gave Trevor all the details and he took over our case dealing with the insurance company. He kept us informed throughout the various stages of the claim and assured us all was progressing well. Within three weeks the claim was processed and we can now proceed with fixing the damage. He took all the stress away from dealing with Insurance Companies. I'm so glad we contacted Trevor, he's very friendly. honest and professional. I can't recommend Trevor highly enough.read more

    Trevor (Insurance Claim Solutions) provided us with a... highly professional and friendly service throughout the claims process. He came highly recommended and we can see why. We had extensive damage caused due to a burst pipe in our boiler which occured only days before Christmas. Trevor responded to our urgent request to assess and submit a claim on our behalf. He took all the hassle and stress out of managing this claim ourselves. His expertise was invaluable in being able to identify all issues and to negotiate with our insurers to ensure all damages were accounted for. Thanks again Trevor.read more

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
