Selecting the Right Fan for In-Bin Natural Air Drying System

used with permission from OPI-Integris
by Chandra B. Singh, Ph.D., P.Eng. and Ron Larson, M.Sc.

OPI-IntegrisAirflow rate is the most significant factor in achieving effective, timely, and successful natural air drying results. How much air a fan can deliver depends not only on the fan (type and size) but also on the bin diameter, grain type (size and shape), grain depth, loading practice, bin capacity, grain packing factor, and percentage of fines, broken, and foreign material. For natural air drying, the minimum recommended airflow rate is approximately 1.0 cfm/bu.

Often, improperly selected/undersized fan delivering less than desired airflow rate leads to the failure of natural air drying. Therefore, it is important to select the right fan that can deliver the desired airflow rate. Increasing the fan horsepower doesn’t always result in increased airflow. Thus, properly selected fan will result in significant energy savings.
