We have worked closely with hybrid seed corn producers for 25 years to understand their processes and requirements. Optek has designed the specific hardware and software to provide a system that offers a cost effective solution to the seed corn drying application.
This has been our primary effort since 1992 and has produced the most complete process monitoring, control, and recording system in the industry.
1 or 2 - 10 foot moisture probe(s) in each drying unit for individual bin moisture measurement.
A top and bottom bin NIST calibrated temperature device.
Air pressure across the corn to monitor air flow
Burner control for custom temperature profiles per hybrid in single pass dryers
2 Pass dryers - Plenum temperatures, pressures, motor currents and bearing temperatures in each dryer
Up to 128 drying units in both 2 pass and single pass reversing dryers
Complete tracking, recording, and monitoring the entire drying process.
Recommends Air Flow Reversal Times.
Recommends Heat Off Times
Includes programmable cooling time
Includes the shelling operation.
Any user defined information important to each batch can be entered and filed along with the process variables.
We invite you to view a system slide show that walks you through a complete seed corn drying process from data entry to final shell out.
