Dryer components

A dryer typically consists of three main components and often has some additional accessories.

The main components are:

  • The drying bin for holding the grain;
  • The fan for moving the air through the dryer and the grain;
  • The air distribution system; and
  • The heating system for pre-heating the drying air.

In addition, dryers can have various accessories for automatization and monitoring the drying process.
