Dave dries about 250,000 bu/year of corn, wheat and soybeans with his 1612 model Grain Handler dryer. He has had his Dryer Master DM510 since 2016.
What had you heard about Dryer Master before you purchased one?
I had seen DM at trade shows. DM came highly recommended by our dryer dealer.
How does the Dryer Master change the way that you dry, from an operational perspective?
The DM gives me better information to monitor my drying operation.
How often do you typically calibrate your outlet moisture sensor? And what is your calibration procedure?
Every 2 to 3 hours depending on incoming moisture. We take a few samples into a pail, mix and test.
Do you use DM-Mobile? If so how do you use it (phone/PC/home/at night?), how often do you use it?
I use DM-Mobile to check the dryer at night from home on my phone. If things are running smoothly, a couple of times before bed and 1st thing in the morning – if conditions are tough, several times while away from dryer.
Have you contacted Dryer Master Support Center? And if so, what was the experience?
DM support is fantastic! They’re always helpful and work on a problem until it’s resolved. Very responsive.
