Seed Drying

We offer the best solutions for drying, storing, maximising and rescuing your seeds at an affordable price. Just as there are many different types of seed coatings, there are also a great number of seed drying methods. Centor Oceania offers solutions for drying all types of seed and coatings, from the pure simplicity and brilliance of drying beads, through to the high efficiency / large volume drying of the Rotary Fluid Bed units.

 

SEED DRYING MACHINERY

Rotary Fluid Bed Dryers

rotary_dryer

Continuous Fluid Bed drying without a vibration system.

Todays challenge is how to maintain the advantage provided by the high output of the rotary coating systems with an efficient continuous drying system. Patented technology gives us the option of adding a continuous fluid bed dryer to rotary coaters either new or existing. RFBD systems are available in various sizes – we can custom build a system to suit your needs.

Fluid Bed Mini Dryer

fluid_mini_dryer

Simple and easy drying of small seed lots.

The Fluid Bed Mini Dryer is one of our most flexible dryers available, it can be deployed everywhere in your company where a power connection is available.

Fluid Bed Lab Dryer

fluid_lab_dryer

New design for a larger capacity and easy to handle.

The FBL is one of our smallest dryers, found in many seed coating / pelleting laboratories.

It is specially made to dry small seed lots using the fluid bed principle.

ICD Systems

icd

Fast and easy continuous coating and drying your seed.

Introducing the ICD system, which is a perfect system when coat ing with high slurry loads. The design, based on the conventional pelleting pan, has gentle seed handling characteristics and is easy to clean. The gentle seed handling is important, as this coating method is less burdensome to specific crops, such as beans.

This ICD-system is very suitable for high loading of crop protection and / or polymer slurries on small vegetable seeds.

The capacity of the system is 35-40L / batch and the actual capacity depends on your slurry load and drying requests. A 100-200ml slurry load typically takes approx. 20 minute.

IRCD Systems

ircd

Automatic coating / pelleting / encrusting and drying system.

Since the development of rotary coating equipment, many conventional seed dressing systems have been replaced by state-of-the-art pesticide application principles.

The IRCD system has been designed for high loads and / or fragile seeds, using combined system of coating / drying in one machine.

The IRCD systems offer a combined application using the rotary coating principle and its unique, connected non-vibration fluidised bed system and is capable of handling pelleting, encrusting and film coating processes rapidly.

 

Cart Drying

Flexible and easy drying of different products.

This flexible and easy to use drying system is specially made for drying of non-threshed corn ears or other non-threshed seed.

However it can also be used for static drying of a multitude of different, smaller seed lots.

Simply connect a moveable stack of containers to the machine and start the drying process (as shown in the above video).

The CDS system has 10 connections for 10 individual carts, with an automatic closing valve.

Multi Batch Cabinet Dryer

Rotary Fluid Bed Drying System with Centor Oceania details.indd

Static drying of several small seed lots at the one time.

The Multi Batch Cabinet Dryer is a static dryer specially made to dry more than one sample at a time. Because the design is a closed cabinet, there is no airflow going into the working space – just connect an exhaust system to the dryer.

Two sliding doors in front of the machine give access to the left or right of the dryer. The airflow trough is in every tower of the drying cylinders which can be adjusted by the valves in the front.

QualiDry®

qualidry

Drying seeds has always been one of the most difficult processes to master. Drying has an enormous impact on the quality and longevity of seeds, however drying can also significantly add to the cost price of the produced seeds.

The QualiDry system combines quality, speed, controllability and efficiency – making it quite unique.

QualiDry is a drying system that has been developed to optimise the quality of the dried product with the aim of minimising costs.

 

Batch Dryers

The Automated Batch Drying System combines highly efficient fluidised bed drying with ‘single batch containment’ advantages.

This system is especially used for combined coating/ drying of pelleted product. If pelleting time for example, is 15 – 20 minutes, an accumulated 4 batches can be dried in about
60 – 80 minutes. Systems of 60 – 600 litre per batch are available. This results in fully automated coating/ drying systems with a capacity of 120 – 1800 litre per hour coating/ drying capacity.

The Automated Batch Drying System is extremely compact, efficient and moderate in cost.

DRYING BEAD TECHNOLOGIES

 

DryStore ®

The DryStore is a new product with a smart, simple design that would fit right into the agricultural space and environment anywhere in the world.

Based on Drying Beads ® technology, it is intended for dry and storage purposes but with many uses; for seed drying, seed storage, anti-moisture, anti-mold, storing cameras, video recorders, computer magnetic discs, audio and videos products, and more.

Drying Beads

drying_beads

Drying Beads® are a crystalline type of clay and thus almost indestructible. They contain pores with a very precise pore size (3Å) and can therefore only absorb water molecules. They are very hygroscopic, and absorb water very fast even in low relative water vapor (or low RH systems).

This is also the major difference with other systems such as silica-gel. This characteristic makes the beads very useful in drying seeds and other agricultural products.

Drying Beads can be re-activated, find out how.

 

Drum Dry

drum_dry

DrumDry® is a vessel which can be used to dry and store seeds under optimal conditions, and give a “color” warning if the seed moisture content inside the drum increases.

Seed moisture content will come to equilibrium with the relative humidity (RH) of their environment, which is the reason when seeds are dried and stored out in the open, they will re-absorb water until they reach equilibrium.

Sizes available: • 50 L • 100 L 200 L
