Batch Grain Dryers
TORNUM GRAIN DRYER TS
Tornum’s Batch Grain Dryer TS can be adapted to different capacity requirements and is equipped with adjustable shutters for drying smaller batches. There is a discharge section between the dryer sections and the discharge hopper, which makes it possible to re-circulate the batch without having to empty the entire unit. This helps ensure even drying, a high-quality end product and good heating economy.

Heat Recovery Grain Dryers
The Tornum heat recovery dryer is the result of Tornum’s ongoing efforts to develop their product range whilst reducing the energy consumption of their grain dryers. The HR grain dryer makes use of the energy that would be lost in a traditional dryer. Normally, up to 30% of the heat is recovered. It also provides a quieter and cleaner work environment thanks to its unique design. All our dryers are made from hot-dip galvanized sheet metal.

Around a quarter of the hottest moist air in a heat recovery dryer is recirculated. Moist air that is recovered is passed through a recirculation zone and then mixed with the heated cooling air. As the recycled air is warmer than the ambient air, you can reduce the energy supply for the gas burner. Nevertheless, you still achieve the desired drying temperature compared to only using fresh air. The design of the HR dryer also means that the exhaust fans at the top require less power.
