|Sukup Manufacturing Company introduces the most
advanced automatic grain dryer on the market.
The Sukup Grain Dryer features a quad metering roll
system and easy, computerized operation.
ASAE, The Society of Engineering in Agricultural, Food and Biological
Systems, recently announced that Sukup Manufacturing Co. is one
of 50 winners of 1999 AE50 Award.
Sukup manufacturing developed the Automatic Grain Dryer with patented
quad metering rolls, one of the year's most innovative designs in
engineering products for the agricultural industry.
Companies from around the world submit entries to the annual AE50
competition. Up to 50 of the best products are chosen by a panel
of international experts to receive the recognition. The judges
select products that best advance engineering for the food and agricultural
Quad metering roll system (patent pending) pulls the grain
closest to the heat through the dryer faster, resulting
in less over-drying, moisture variation and temperature
The top metering roll runs 40% faster than the bottom
The metering roll speed is infinitely variable dependent
upon the actual moisture content of the discharged grain.
The Sukup Grain Dryer does not use temperature variations
to control the metering roll speed like other dryers.
Sensors on the Sukup Dryer actually measure the moisture
content of the grain, resulting in much more even moisture
Metering roll speed is adjusted based upon a three-minute
average of the moisture content to ensure better moisture
The Sukup Automatic Grain Dryer features the most advanced
and user-friendly microprocessor controller on the market
for trouble-free, no-hassle operation of the dryer.
All controls, as well as the printer, are standard equipment.
The large, 4-line LCD read-out on the control panel provides
prompts to lead the operator through all keyboard functions.
An Optional stand for the control box on the Sukup Grain
Dryer allows it to be remotely located, so it can be positioned
for greatest convenience.
Control box designs include a double-sealed door system,
and a large keyboard for easy operation, even when wearing
The printer records important operation data including;
metering roll speed, moisture content of discharged grain,
and temperature of discharged grain. If a safety shut-down
occurs, the system supplies you with a print-out telling
why the shut-down occurred.
The wet holding bin can be folded for transport and/or storage.
The Sukup Grain Dryer can fill from the front or rear
of the dryer without taking the entire wet bin off. Simply
reverse the motor and move the paddle switch and hopper
to the opposite end.
Tapered hopper can accommodate 10" augers.
Air mixing chamber design provides more even heat distribution.
4' x 20" Interior Access Door offers the most accessibility
to metering rolls and auger of any dryer on the market.
Exterior threaded rod adjustment of the internal flow
control gates allows you to easily adjust the dryer for
different grain types.
Easy-to-handle single latch doors on the outside of the
dryer allow for easy clean-out.
Sight glass at the rear of the dryer allows easy viewing
of the burner.
Sample spout design is easy to use.
