Begin the Drying Process

Bindapt+ and Bindapt+ Pro

The Bindapt+ and Bindapt+ Devices have an integrated plenum sensor that reads Temperature, Humidity, and Static pressure in the plenum. These data points are crucial to a successful In-Bin Drying Application. We use Temperature and Humidity set-points to regulate the supplemental heat entering the bin while using the Static Pressure Sensor to understand the fans performance.

The Static Pressure is matched against your Fan Chart to convert Pressure (iwg) into CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) in the platform. We take this one step further by dividing those CFM by the bushels in the bin to give you CFM per bushel. In order to dry grain In-Bin you must have over 1 CFM per Bushel of grain.

Minimum CFM/Bushel
In-Bin Drying
1 CFM/bu
Natural Air Drying (NAD)
1 CFM/bu
Cool Down (Cooling Grain)
0.1 CFM/bu

Do you have enough Airflow?

Traditionally everyone thought they need 1HP / 1000 bushels.

This is NOT TRUE if you are attempting In-Bin Drying!

You need 1 CFM per Bushel to DRY

Our Platform will Analyze your Drying

The Visual Farm Platform will take all the input data points (Plenum Sensor & In Bin Cables) and show you IF you are Drying or Hydrating, how effectively the process is going, and provide an estimated time of completion!
Once a drying event has started it is important to continually run the Aeration Fan to push the moisture front through the entire bin. If you don’t have 1 CFM/bu you WILL NOT be able to push the moisture front through the bin and will be required to remove grain.

Cool-Down Process

Run Cool-Down Cycle for 24-48 Hours

Once the entire bin has heated and ran for a few days (or the estimated time) switch the Bin Mode from Drying to Cool-Down. The Cool-Down Cycle will ensure that the EMC of the grain remains constant while the heat is removed from your bin through Aeration.

After you can see all Grain Cable nodes have cooled down to a safe storage temperature you can turn off aeration and allow the bin the equalize. It takes up to 24 hours without aeration for the bin the equalize and provide accurate Moisture readings.

Evaluate Your Results!

Take a few samples from your grain bin and analyze the results. There are a lot of variables at work when doing In-Bin Drying but with proper airflow and temperatures you can easily reduce your grains moisture levels. You can log your results in the ‘Notes” section of each bin.

The entire In-Bin Drying System can easily be moved from bin-to-bin rather than hauling grain to a dedicated dryer.
