Drying of straw bales
The Ventus is a drying system for drying straw in big bales in heights of either 1200 mm or 900 mm. The bales are dried one by one in a drying section. The system is based on wet bales being loaded on a moving stock (chain conveyor). The moving stock can be extended to hold the number of wet bales required.
The bales are automatically moved one by one into the drying section to be dried by warm air blowing into the bale. The warm air picks up the moisture in the straw through the passage of the bale and escapes though the surface of the bale. The dried bale moves to a push station, pushing the bales sideward to the floor. The bales are positioned to make top stacking easy for common transportation by forklift.
The system runs fully automatic. It only needs to be operated for loading and unloading of bales.
