Agricultural Drying

Drying with natural gas – give yourself the advantage

Natural gas grain and tobacco dryers deliver consistent and reliable operation and cost efficiencies over other fuels.

Natural gas is the high value fuel that offers the most heat content per dollar and a range of options to meet energy needs.

Here's how we can save you money

All dryers operate by accelerating the process of evaporation. Increasing the air temperature and airflow across wet crops causes them to dry more quickly. Natural gas dryers instantly heat to full temperature by drawing air into the burner.

The warm air then circulates through the bin to pick up moisture and deposit it outside. The result is dry crops at a lower cost than propane.

Reliable and flexible

Natural gas dryers are the best choice for agricultural use not only because they cost less to operate but also because they dry crops more quickly and gently than propane alternatives.
