What temperature should set when drying the corns?

The dryer for corn is an indispensable piece of equipment in modern agricultural production. It replaces the traditional drying method by mechanical means, which saves a lot of labor and time, and improves the quality of corn. The dryer for corn has been widely used for drying the corn, but the operation of this kind of equipment and the setting of various parameters is still very unfamiliar to people who are unknown the dryer for corn. For example, people do not know what temperature should be set during the drying process?

According to our consultation with the dryer manufacturers, the temperature setting of the corn dryer mainly depends on moisture. You can buy a grain moisture meter online to measure the moisture of the corn before drying. If the moisture exceeds 30%, the temperature needs to be set higher, which usually should be set between 300 and 350 degrees. If the moisture content is less than 30%, then the temperature should be set at 300 degrees. This is just a reference value. The specific temperature setting is related to many factors, such as the speed of the equipment, the feeding volume, etc. The temperature setting is usually completed by the manufacturer’s technicians. When the customer receives the purchased drying equipment, the manufacturer will send technicians to the site to guide the installation. After the installation is completed, debugging will be carried out to adjust the equipment speed, temperature, and feeding volume to the best level, and then train the workers to operate the method.

The temperature setting of the corn dryer should follow the principle that it should keep low and not too high. If the temperature is too high, the corn will pop or break. If it is too low, it may not be dried thoroughly, but it has the chance to be re-dried, which will not cause any damage to the corn.
