Continuous Mixed-Flow Dryers
Optimum Grain Quality
Caldwell Continuous Mixed-Flow Dryers Yield Big Benefits
Continuous Mixed-Flow Dryers are used for drying commodities such as corn, wheat, soybeans, and rice, with a reputation for durability, energy-efficiency, dependable performance and advanced technology.
Preserves Grain Quality
Dryer Master Moisture Sensors
With the Caldwell Continuous Mixed-Flow Dryer and Dryer Master's grain moisture technologies, the guesswork of drying eliminated.
The Continuous Mixed-Flow technology dries grain uniformly with less dispersion of outlet grain moistures. This results in grain of higher quality, improved test weight, and better storability.
Rather than the conventional screen drying method, grain is gravitationally separated and continually mixed as it cascades and gently tumbles around honeycombed ducts.
The larger holding capacity allows grains to be tempered and heated slowly. Longer retention time and gentle heating reduces the likelihood of grain crackling due to stress.
Greater Energy Efficiency
Caldwell Mixed-Flow Dryers provide 40-45 cfm of air per bushel.
Fan-Under Mixed-Flow Dryers
The fan-under Continuous Mixed-Flow Dryers offer capacities of 1,150 BPH (29MT/h) to 7,000 BPH (178MT/h)(5 point dry and cool).
Fuel-efficient Maxon Burners accept propane or natural gas. Single burner, gas train and ignition are standard on all models.
Easier to Install and Operate
Modular construction allows for the sections to be delivered in stages and offers attractive time and cost-saving assembly.
Conveyance Unload System
Caldwell Mixed-Flow Dryers are unloaded by twin drag conveyors (one per column) and powered by a single drive.
Remote Touch-Screen Control Panels
The interactive control panel allows for ease of operation. Only a few settings need to be made prior to operation.
