The TopDry from GSI features fan units on the ground and works best with a roof drying floor. The equipment is available in manual or completely automated versions. The Stir-Ator turns a storage bin into a drying system. Because it completely mixes up the grain while drying, the product on the bottom of the bin gets as dry as that on the top. The single or split plenum dryers from Sukup allow farmers to choose to dry their grains at full heat or use a mix of cool and hot air to preserve the quality of grain.
