    You have planned every aspect of the planting and care of your crop.

    Planning for success at harvest and post-harvest should be no different.

    FFI Grain Dryers give growers the CONTROL to harvest when necessary and

    to moisture levels ideal for long-term storage. Being confi dent in the

    PROTECTION of your properly conditioned grain allows you to

    turn your attention to managing your operation, monitoring

    the markets, and the overall STRENGTH of your business.

    THE GENIUS OF FFI Our #1 concern is the quality and preservation of your grain,

    a valuable asset that must be protected.

    Storing, conditioning, moving, and protecting grain is a

    science, and it is the foundation of our business.

    That is why FFI designs and manufactures the

    total grain system… not just one or two aspects.

  • MODULAR TOWER DRYER When cooling bins are not available, dry & cool 5 point

    removal capacity requirements are in the 800 to 1,690

    BPH range, and the available foot print space is re-

    stricted, a Modular Tower Dryer is a great selection. Wet

    grain needs to be supplied at 43’ to 63’ heights which will

    normally require a bucket elevator. Modular construction

    makes for easier installation while standard grain invert-

    ers, vacuum cooling heat recovery, and proven tower

    dryer technology assures the best quality and effi ciency in

    a farm series dryer.

    W H I C H D R Y E R I S R I G H T F O R Y O U ?

    F-SERIES TOWER DRYER Where the largest capacity, even commercial in scale is

    required, the F-Series Tower Dryer is the solution. Dry &

    Cool 5 point removal capacities from 1,500 to 10,000 BPH

    are provided with the same structural and grain quality,

    effi ciency, and environmental performance as the

    Zimmerman Tower Dryers. With diameters from 12’ to 30’

    and heights from 54’ to 135’, this series gives the

    highest capacity for the square footage consumed, mak-

    ing the F-Series the best choice for large farm and even

    most commercial site needs.

    Today’s farm operations have greatly varied needs for their drying solutions. Size, type, and investment all play a part in

    the decision for which to use. Fortunately, FFI provides systems of every size and type to help with those needs.

    PORTABLE DRYERS Once drying needs exceed what a bin drying system is

    capable of, Portable Dryers provide higher capacities with

    greater fl exibility while minimizing the investment. They

    may operate either dry & cool or all heat while cooling

    in properly equipped bins using LP or natural gas with

    many models able to use single phase electrical supplies.

    This design covers the smaller to middle capacity 5 point

    removal requirements from 220 to 2,450 BPH dry & cool

    and 420 to 4,000 BPH all heat. From a simple system with

    grain moved with augers to a more involved system with

    an overhead wet bin, drag conveyors, and bucket

    elevators, FFI’s portable dryer models are the most

    versatile. The low profi le of the single module dryers

    work well with overhead wet bins, while the 8’-26’ basket

    lengths give growers the fl exibility they need for capacity

    growth. Depending on the model, FFI’s optional grain

    inverters, heat recovery systems, and noise suppression

    systems can further enhance effi ciency, quality, and

    environmental requirements in a high percentage of

    today’s growing farms.
