Zanin - Model FIXDRY - Traditional continuous grain dryer equipped with loading/unloading elevators
From Grain Drying
The drying column of the grain dryer equipped with loading/unloading elevators is formed by a loading hopper and a number of modules with internal conical ducts immersed in the grain, which descends by way of gravity in a zigzag movement. The grain is hit by a counter current of hot air in the upper part and a flow of air from the outside environment in the lower part (cooling), which is released into the atmosphere. The quantity of grain released is pre-determined and regulated by a pneumatic extractor. The product is then collected in an unloading hopper.
