PHOTO REPORT: Mecmar grain dryer in Wroclaw, Poland

A huge tower dryer was recently installed in Wroclaw, Poland. This is the most powerful continuous dryer within the Mecmar portfolio with a daily production (24hrs) of 1,440 tons of maize – considering a moisture reduction from 20% to 15%. The final moisture content of the grain can be changed by the end-user. The cost of the system depends upon its configuration (e.g. type of burner, type of grain you want to dry, etc.).

  • Next to the dryer you can see 2 silos for storage and one smaller silo for fast loading. The dryer is completely automatic: load, drying, cooling, and unloading does not require any intervention of the operator.
