Mobile Grain Dryer


The mobile grain dryer (MGD) is used to reduce the moisture content (MC) of grain to a safe level or desired MC. It can be towed by a farm tractor making it easy to move to another location.

The MGD provides better control over the temperature and MC. It can be operated either day or night and requires less labor attention.

Moreover. it dries grains evenly and has higher milling yield and head rice recovery.

Holding capacity 6 tons wet @ 24% MC
Drying efficiency Minimum of 75%
Heat source Biomass fuel
Heating system Direct-fired
Components Mounting trailer, generator set
