For My Business / Grain dryers
More than 80% of grain dryers run on propane. The latest generation of propane dryers are highly efficient and allow very precise control of the heat produced, which ensures uniform drying and high-quality performance. They use 36% less propane compared to older systems.
With modern systems, it takes about 3,600 BTUs to extract one kilo of water. In fact, 90% of the propane extracted from the tanks is converted into energy.
High efficiency drying devices are designed to optimize drying speed and yield. They are also manufactured for a long lifespan and low maintenance costs.
Propane grain dryers limit fungi and bacterial growth. Burning extremely cleanly, the dryers never contaminate grains during the drying operation. With propane’s energy efficiency, relatively low and stable price, portability, environmental safety and reliability, it is a vital and economical energy for grain drying.
Propane can also be used to dry oilseeds, sunflowers, nuts, vegetables or fruits to increase yields and reduce storage losses. Dehydration reduces moisture content without damaging food products. It helps to obtain better prices for crops that must meet certain moisture content criteria.
