Proper cleaning of your dryer each season is very important and contributes to the longevity of the dryer. In order to perform at peak performance, use the following suggestions for cleaning your grain dryer:
- The first method is by brushing the dryer clean. This works well if dryer surface area is not too large or if debris on dryer is fairly light to remove.
- The second method is high pressure water line. The pressure washer can be used to cover a fairly large surface area and will clean off heavier debris. The heavier debris would normally develop on the screens when drying high moisture corn.
- Both methods of cleaning can be done with the dryer full or empty. If dryers are full it is easier to clean with the fans running.
