Advanced controls on grain dryers

Synopsis 

Manual control in grain drying operations with large moisture variation often leads to significant overdrying or underdrying, and is very inefficient from an energy point of view. Feedback-based automatic controllers can help to minimise energy consumption by more precisely controlling energy inputs to meet the needs of the product being processed. While preservation of grain quality is the primary benefit, energy savings of up to 20 percent can be achieved.
