Delux Mfg. Co. has been building grain dryers since 1962. Over the years, many different types, sizes and models of grain dryers have been manufactured. Delux was the first company to market a `vacuum cooled` grain dryer. This type of dryer has received great acceptance and has grown to be the largest type of commercial dryer on the market today. Over these 50 years, many things have been significantly improved; however, many things have remained the same. Delux has always known to get good capacity and excellent grain quality, a dryer has to hold a lot of grain (example: a dryer rated at 1,000 bph 20% - 15% should hold close to 1,000 bushels). A dryer that does not hold enough grain will require higher heat (that will damage grain) and will still not dry its rated capacity.
Delux also knows a dryer is a long term investment. Many dryers that we built in the 1960's are still running strong today.We continue to build a dryer that will last you for many decades. Only the best quality parts and components are used on Delux Grain Dryers and we do not cut corners during assembly. We use a roll formed 'lock lip' on our screens and they are all bolt and nut assembly for superior strength and longevity. All aluminium outside screens are standard to eliminate corrosion.
In any grain dryer, the fan and burner are very important components. We spare no expense to provide the correct air flow with a very clean efficient burn. Our fans are designed to move a lot of air and do it very quietly. Our burner provides a very short clean blue flame for very safe and efficient operation without disrupting our airflow.
With Delux exclusive flip up access doors, it’s very easy for you to inspect and access your metering rolls and unload system (a feature you will demand once you have it). We also offer an unload drag conveyor on any Delux Grain Dryer. Drag conveyors are standard on any of our dryers over 1,500 bushels per hour and optional on our smaller units.
Operation of a Delux Grain Dryer is very easy. A stepped process allows you only to start the dryer in the correct order so no mistakes can be made. If your Delux Grain Dryer shuts down, it has a “tattle tale” system to let you know why it’s shut down. We also make an automatic moisture control system standard on all Delux Dryers to give you even moisture control for your dryer.
If you would like to have the most accurate moisture controller on the market, we also offer our MoistureLink and MoistureLink Plus controllers. This technology combines the newest moisture capacitance sensing with mid-grain temperature sensing to precisely control the moisture of your discharging grain. With the MoistureLink Plus control, you’re able to view and control your dryer over your smartphone, iPad or other web enabled device. Click here for more information on the MoistureLink technology.
