GRAIN DRYING

Grain  has been an important agricultural commodity and primary food source for centuries. The present distribution  of  the  world’s  population  has   made strong demands on grain-handling technology. Irrespective  of  whether  it  is international trade  or  demands  within  a  country,  grain  needs  low  moisture levels for  safe storage.  Drying  has  always  been  the most  common  method  of  preserving  grain.  In  the days   of  premechanization  of  agriculture,   enough grain  was usually  stored  by hanging  ears of corn  in barn  lofts and attics to meet the needs of a community. As mechanization of agriculture  spreads to meet the needs of a population that  was rapidly  growing and urbanizing, mechanical methods for drying large quantities of grain were needed. Grain now travels thousands of miles either in large grain-carrying  ships or in different types of carriers on wheels, and must reach its destination  in a high-quality state. Proper drying of these huge quantities  of grain is a prerequisite to safe storage and delivery. The belt dryer is suitable for grain drying or pneumatic dryer is suitable for drying grain  as powder. you can find some information about drying following below.
