DIRECT HEAT VS INDIRECT HEAT! HOW ABOUT THE BEST OF BOTH!!
In this Article the expert affirms that air drying is nearly impossible without heat when temperatures drop below 10ºC. They also mention that they feel using direct heat is better, because they get higher efficiencies, but the down side is it does add some water, which is counterproductive.
With our Grain Drying units we have the best of both systems! As we are an indirect system, meaning “0” water is added to the bins and our burners are 98% efficient as compared to the 80% efficiencies of our competitors. With the added protection of no flame and our ability to set the temperature exactly where you want it and it will maintain regardless of what the outside temperature is. Meaning you can dry day and night and get your aeration fans shut off faster, saving you gas and electricity. There is nothing that compares to the MACHED Grain Dying System! Call us today!!
