At FS Construction Services we talk a lot about the importance of grain storage systems. Having enough space, having a well-protected grain bin, having good airflow, etc. are all integral to effectively storing your grain long term or short term. Less often, do we talk about grain handling or grain drying, so today we want to take a little time to focus on the importance of these other types of grain systems, and we thought there is no better way than highlighting a project we have recently completed.
New Sukup Axial Fan Dryer for Efficient Grain Drying
Our client had an established four-bin setup, but was in need of a new, efficient dryer. To make this possible, we installed a T16 Sukup Axial Fan Dryer. This 14’ 7” H x 25’ L x 7’ 11” W dryer has the ability to hold up to 440 bushels and has a grain column holding capacity of 380 bushels. The T16 grain dryer has a top-line drying capacity of 725 bushels per hour. Additionally, we installed a double run conveyor to adequately fill the new dryer as well as a second bin to act as a wet bin.
When all was said and done, our client is now able to quickly and effectively dry, move, and store their grain for however long they need to. With properly dried grain they won’t need to worry about mildew, rot, or spoilage, and rest comfortably knowing it will be there for them when they need it.
