A corncob-fueled drying system

A corncob-fueled drying system

Transactions of the ASAE American Society of Agricultural Engineers 27(2): 556-560

A system to collect, transport, process, dry and burn maize cobs to dry shelled maize was evaluated. A mixture of shelled maize and cobs was harvested by a conventional combine harvester, with minor adjustments and modifications. It was then transported to the drying facility where a continuous, automated system separated, dried and conveyed cobs to the combustor, a two-stage downdraft device with a 400 to 800 kW heat output.
