Tobacco Dryers are available in two models:
Model TD 150 with 150,000 BTUs furnace for barns up to 25’ long.
Model TD 300 with 300,000 BTUs twin furnaces for barns 40’ long.
How Does ADS CVHR Save
more air coming out of your barn, the more heat you lose.
That is why we developed the Controlled Ventilation with Heat
Recovery (CVHR) system for our tobacco dryers.
Even with Conrolled
Ventilation, you still lose heat through the exhaust air and the flue
pipe. Therefore, we use a heat pipe system to recover waste heat.
Our heat exchangers are certified at 80% efficiency by GAMA,
which means that 20% of the heat
is still wasted in the flue pipe. Our heat pipe system recovers half of
the heat from the flue bringing the overall efficiency of the funace to a
insulation of your barn will add more to the savings.
All together if
compared to barns using oversized burners and heat exchangers with
uncertain efficiency, 40% savings in propane or more can be expected with
our drying technology, and drying time can be as short as 6 days.
