Rice drying technology has emerged as a popular agricultural food processing technique in recent years. This technology allows for the rapid drying of rice, regardless of weather conditions. The widespread adoption of this technique has not only reduced the labor intensity of farmers but also significantly lowered post-harvest losses, improved the quality of rice, and increased the economic income of farmers. Small and simple rice dryers usually do not require installation as they come as a complete set that can be used by plugging them into an electrical outlet or adding coal to them. However, large-scale rice dryers have certain requirements for the site where they will be installed. After purchasing the equipment, customers need to prepare the site according to specific requirements before installation.
The production site for a rice dryer is generally an open rain shelter with an area not less than 90 square meters and a height of about 9-13 meters with rain shields on all sides. The warehouse structure of the grain depot should be designed according to specific requirements. The rain shelter structure should adopt a steel structure, and factory production and on-site assembly can speed up construction progress. The top cover of the shelter should use pressed color steel plates and arch-shaped plates as shielding materials with a thickness between 0.75mm and 1.0mm. When purchasing steel plates, special attention should be paid to their quality and waterproof performance to prevent premature corrosion, shorten maintenance cycles, and avoid leakage issues.
The rice dryer can be constructed on an intact concrete surface with a thickness of 1.80-120 and a C20 fine stone concrete layer that is leveled and polished during mixing. A 150-thick layer of 5-32 pebbles is filled with M2.5 mixed mortar and compacted with a plate vibrator (or 100-thick 3:7 gray soil). According to the layout of the rice drying machine process, the equipment foundation and pipeline should be prepared, and the dust collection room should have an area of not less than 30 square meters and a height of approximately 3.5 meters. It should be sealed with bricks and concrete and equipped with side wall louvers. As for equipment installation, the manufacturer will install the main body of the dryer, while the granary will cooperate in installing supporting equipment under the guidance of the supplier.
After understanding the requirements for constructing a production site for the rice dryer, manufacturers will provide guidance on building production sites based on different types and specifications of dryers. Therefore, it is necessary to consider various factors comprehensively based on actual conditions to develop a set of site planning drawings that ensure smooth installation and use of equipment after it is in place.
