Engine-Driven Fan Helps Dry Grain
eat from a propane-fired motor aids low temperature grain drying with this set up devised by Fred Markers, Tallula, Ill.
A Kohler 20 propane engine drives a 2-ft. dia. drying fan that was originally electric driven. The fan blows atmospheric air into the bin along with captured engine heat. A special-built hood on the engine helps direct heated air into the fan. Markers says the low-temperature set up works best wth corn at 22 percent moisture or less. The engine driven fan is portable so he can move it from bin to bin.
