Grain dryers perform a vital task in the modern food chain.
The drying of grain is still an active area of agricultural research. The energy used to complete the process continues to get more expensive, so computer programmes are used in order to model the performance of a train dryer; and by taking into account various factors involved in the drying period, such as chemistry, physics and thermodynamics, a better drying rate can be achieved. A benchmark in the process is the creation of \'bread making \' quality grain, and another is the percentage of grain that germinates.
The actual grain drying process itself is fairly simple. It starts at the bottom of the grain dryer bin, where the grain first makes contact with the air. This dry air is pushed up by a fan to meet the initial layer of wet grain. The grain drys in a layer up to two feet thick, often referred to as the drying zone. This drying zone moves from the bottom to the top of the drying bin and when it arrives, the grain is dry. The air is then forced out of the grain dryer via exhaust vents.
