Online calculator: Grain Drying with Natural Air

2015-10-30  Natural air can be used for drying grain if the conditions are right. This calculator will determine if the ambient outside air is suitable for drying. The inputs are grain moisture content, %, grain temperature, C, and the outside air temperature, C. The output is the threshold relative humidity for several different types of grain.

2020-3-11  Typical drying rates of rice dryers are in the 0.5%/hr to 1%/hr range. A drying curve, as illustrated in the figure below, shows how the grain moisture content (MC) and grain temperature change over time. As can be seen in the chart, the drying rate is not constant but changes over time. The temperature of the grain equally changes over time.

Wheat Drying and Storage

The goal of wheat drying is to reduce grain moisture content to meet the recommended levels for safe, long-term storage. When placed in storage, wheat should be dried quickly to a moisture level of about 12 percent to minimize any quality deterioration. Wheat drying can be accomplished in bins by blowing large volumes of dry air through the grain.
