Continuous Double Flow
The Alvan Blanch Continuous Double Flow Grain Dryer is the right choice to achieve uniform drying with any granular crop. It will give you peace of mind at harvest time as it is fully automated with the most advanced sensors and controls.
Advanced Grain Drying Technology
LOW FIRE RISK
Compared to other drying systems. Good acessibility to every part of the drier via hinged doors allowing easy maintenance.
BALANCED AND ADJUSTABLE AIRFLOW
Ensures unbeatable performance even at low drying temperatures when drying malt, grass seeds or any other product sensitive to the temperature.
HIGHLY FUEL EFFICIENT
Due to the total recirculation of waste heat from cooling section. Insulation options are available on request.
NO DOWNTIME BETWEEN CROPS
Instant, electronically controlled follow on without
the need for emptying and re-filling.
PRECISE FLOW CONSISTENCY
Plus the mechanical flow avoids streaming, and
complete bed inversion.
STEPLESS AUTO SPEED CONTROL
Instant response for optimum accuracy.
Will dry any crop, in any condition.
No need for pre-cleaning.
BUILT-IN PRECISION AND
The amount of moisture taken out of the crop is
accurately controlled. Get peace of mind during the harvest with fully automated advanced sensors and controls. The optional remote control means that you
can make any adjustments on your grain dryer from home, or the combine harvester, using a smartphone.
All granular products and nuts are moved within the dryer, meaning no possibility of blockages, bridging or hot spots.
LOW INSTALLATION COST
Mostly pre-assembled, pre-wired and low foundation costs.
MINIMAL ENVIROMENTAL IMPACT
Low profile, low noise (extra silencers
and cladding avaliable).
DUST CONTROL SYSTEMS
Optional dust house to collect dust and chaff.
High fuel savings compared to other drying systems
Built-in air recirculation for the used cooling air which allows heat from dryer to be re-used, saving fuel.
Further fuel savings can be made with external cladding, allowing even more warm air to be re-used. The dryer can be fully internally insulated, to minimise even more heat loss and reduce the fuel usage when drying with extreme weather conditions.
Easily set for every granular crop
All key drying parameters including bed depth, drying air temperature, residence time (amount of drying to be done), airspeed and maximum grain temperature are fully adjustable from dryer / control panel to allow dryer to be optimally set for each product, maximising efficiency.
Less electrical power consumption
Fully adjustable hot fan speed via electrical invertor technology allows fan speed to be reduced on lighter products, saving electrical energy.
Built-in dust and chaff removal
Built in dust and chaff removal system eliminates the need for separate cleaning system prior to drying to achieve satisfactory and safe drying, reducing any additional electric consumption.
Grain is turned during drying process, ensuring even drying.
Continuous Grain and Air temperature monitoring allows the grain dryer to automatically regulate drying process to maximise efficiency and throughput.
Sensors on grain feed system automatically control grain fill level, minimising running time on intake equipment.
Blockage sensors on all connected equipment minimise downtime in event of system blockage.
Built to last for generations
Proven construction with an anti-corrosion finish and strong epoxy paint.
Backed by a 2 year warranty and worldwide support.

How it Works
Continuous Double Flow Dryer Features Gallery
The Continuous Double Flow Grain Dryer was born from the very first drier designed, by Alvan Blanch OBE, in 1946. The drier boasts a completely unique design that has made it the best selling Continuous Flow Grain Dryer in the UK.
