POST HARVESTSince 1960
For almost 60 years, Gellert has innovated your Climate Solutions with University-based Research and years of applied data. We were the reason Post Harvest began and expanded globally. And you’ll be the reason why we continue to grow.
GELLERT. POST HARVEST SUCCESS. WE KNOW HOW!
PRESSURIZING AND BALANCING –
Gellert creates your Post-Harvest success by pressurizing your building. We do this using a perfectly designed plenum, then placing certified equipment that meets the design requirements. We don’t cut corners in design or equipment.
CREATING THE PERFECT CLIMATE –
Once the building is sealed and pressurized, and the entire building is balanced, the system can create the perfect climate for storage without obstructions and limitations. Like water in a tank, the air freely flows to all open areas and spaces.
CLIMATE DISTRIBUTION TO THE PRODUCE –
To control respiration and transpiration, Gellert’s air distribution method controls the climate and gets as close to the product as possible. Fans that create packets of air effectively carry the necessary humidity and climate and deliver it to the produce.
UNLIKE HIGH-SPEED OPTIONS….
where the humidity falls out of the air packet long before it reaches the produce, Gellert’s certified fan speeds treat the produce like a human. Living root vegetables like calm, consistent air flow over a 24-hour period. Anything besides that means potatoes respirate and transpire quickly – and the desired Post-Harvest goals of longevity and quality fail.
Where Post Harvest Ventilation is concerned, Gellert doesn’t cut corners, there’s too much at stake. All fans are AMCA Certified. This is key to performance and also to qualify for utility incentive programs and meet life and standard criteria. It’s a tough test – but our customers deserve it. CLICK HERE for more information.
Gellert’s Centrifugal Humidifiers provide a simple solution to humidification needs as they are completely self-contained. Specifically designed for minimum maintenance, all parts coming in contact with water are made using stainless steel, copper, brass, and aluminum to aid in corrosion resistance.

Inconsistent seasonal temperature challenges are easily solved with Refrigeration. Gellert can help with a variety of affordable solutions depending on your budget. From Fixed Condensing Units, Portable, Unit Coolers and more Gellert can adapt to your refrigeration needs.
The Gellert Company Agri-Star™ Control Panel features a large, full-color touch screen display with complete on-screen graphing. Comes internet-ready with no proprietary software to operate, a user friendly, clear operating interface, on-board help menus, and software flexibility to control both Potato and Onion systems.

Gellert’s Ruskin® Backdraft Exhaust Dampers are gravity operated and open with air flow and pressure. Every damper is built with performance in mind and tested per AMCA standards in Ruskin’s Laboratory. Backdraft design prevents air from entering the building through the Exhaust Dampers. Damper blades are constructed from .050” thick extruded aluminum with extruded vinyl blade edge seals and are mounted in an aluminum frame with synthetic bearings. Gellert’s Ruskin® Backdraft Exhaust Dampers provide high performance with minimal maintenance to guarantee a long operational life.
Gellert’s GDC Door Controller is simple to operate, reliable, and provides precise control of ClimaSeal Doors or Fresh Air Louvers. Service features include status indicating LEDs for all signal power and fusing and full manual override of all control functions to insure simple trouble shooting.
The Gellert Linear Actuator features a potentiometer for precise positioning and integral adjustable limit switches to automatically shut off actuator within desired operating ranges. Housing and motor are fully sealed to protect all internal components from harsh environments. When integrated with the Gellert Control Panel, the actuator offers precise temperature control and is available in a variety of stroke lengths.
ADDITIONAL APPLICATIONS and INDUSTRIES
Our Climate Design works for all kinds applications and industries. Besides potatoes, popular long-term storage produce like onions, carrots, sweet potatoes and root vegetables also benefit greatly from the proper environment.
And it doesn’t stop there. WHATEVER your commodity is, call Gellert so we can discuss your perfect storage climate options!
