The DryAir system uses low drying temperatures of approximately 110°F (43°C) or lower, which are inline with the Canadian Grain Commission recommendations to virtually eliminate the possibility of seed damage. This recommendation has been adopted by seed growers who have realized increases in germination from 83% to 99%. This perfect natural air drying is replicated whether the temperature is -34°C (-30°F) or if the relative humidity is 100%, allowing harvest to continue even on marginal days.
By harvesting earlier at higher moisture levels, your window of opportunity is expanded. This will ensure that the grain you get into your bin is of the best quality. What is the cost difference to your farm when harvesting grain that is food grade vs feed grade? Well, the numbers can be absolutely huge! Incorporating a DryAir System into your operation will ensure an earlier harvest with the best grades possible, maximizing profits in the process.
Studies have also shown that taking the crop off at a higher moisture content will help maintain optimum test weights. With a DryAir system, you can safely and cost effectively dry down grain with moisture of over 20%.
The hydronic DryAir system produces the clean and dry heated air required for efficient grain drying. Conversely, conventional dryers produce ‘wet’ air, from the direct flame combustion process. This adds a tremendous amount of unwanted water into the airstream. For example, a conventional dryer with an 800,000 Btu burner will introduce close to “one ton” of water per day into the grain being dried.
Many times, we have heard comments on how easy the fall was because of the utilization of a DryAir system. The primary reasons are because the DryAir System delivers high durability with low maintenance, practically eliminates the risk of fire and provides a ‘Set & Forget’ operation that minimizes monitoring.
Also, with a DryAir system, the management of stored grain involves very little grain handling. With a conventional dryer many farms are augering the grain 5 times before the grain is dry and placed in long term storage!
Many farms would benefit from more harvest capacity. However, at a price tag of $750,00 dollars for a new combine, adding a DryAir system to your farm is definitely a lower capital, maintenance and labour cost solution. Ensure your expensive combines are harvesting earlier in the fall, in the morning and after a rain with an extra 24/7 hand from a DryAir system.
With a DryAir system the drying of multiple commodities in multiple bins can be achieved simultaneously. Grain cross contamination and the tiresome clean-out associated with other conventional dryers is a thing of the past.
Capitalize on the thousands you already have invested in aeration by turning it into a highly effective drying system. The DryAir system can fully utilize the fans and aeration systems you now have in place!
Make your DryAir system mobile by mounting the Central Heating Unit on a trailer. This will enable you to access all the bins in a yard site, dry at multiple yard sites and heat remote structures.
In addition to drying grain, the efficient Central Heating Unit can be set up to heat other farm buildings such as the shop and house.
The sum of these positive attributes makes the DryAir system extremely user friendly, maximizing your farm’s productivity while minimizing labour and machinery costs, expanding your harvest window more than any other drying system on the market.
