After their start in 1963, Zimmerman became the market leader in tower design. With a design that allows for easy heat recovery without the uneven heat issues of other dryers, along with a patented self cleaning divider floor and quiet operation, Zimmerman tower dryers give you the features you need.
Controls: Functionality comes first when it comes to controls. The Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC Controls communicating with the PanelView operator interface offers an easy-to-read large color graphical touch display that’s located on your dryer or remote with a few wires. You’ll have unmatched options and settings to get the exact performance you’re looking for from your system. These controls are specifically designed for Zimmerman Tower Dryers and allow for seamless integration with other grain system PLC controls, making your day to day easier.
Grain Inverters: Eliminate over-dried grain and maximize drying efficiency and quality by using a GSI’s patented grain inverter. This system inverts all but the outside two inches of grain promoting higher test weights, maximum grain quality, and reduced fuel usage. The outside 2 inches of wet grain is dried using the heat which would have otherwise escaped the dryer, keeping your operation energy efficient. A convenient clean-out door provides easy, quick maintenance.
Moisture Sampler: Improve your accuracy with the new static moisture sampler. Debris Guards ensure a trash-free sample while a SideKick Auger mixes and delivers a uniform representative sample to the test chamber. Get the most accurate results as the moisture reading used to monitor/calculate discharge grain moisture is only taken while the grain is static and not flowing.
WatchDog allows you to monitor and control your dryer from anywhere. Monitor and adjust moisture and temperature from your phone, tablet, or computer with ease.
Zimmerman’s emissions control features a tapered design to keep particulate in the dryer instead of in the air. Standard small .078” perforations are used to retain bees wings and particulate material, while even smaller (.0625”) perforations are used at the critical areas below the Grain Inverters and on the inside of the cooling area. Solid, non-perforated exterior sheets are used at the Grain Inverters and in the discharge section to minimize particulate escape.
Zimmerman’s field proven patented Accu-Trol metering system is self-cleaning and has UHMW in all contact areas for lower horse power demand and increased longevity. Your grain travels a short distance with no damage on a standard stainless steel floor with a VFD drive for accurate, dependable operation.
