GTR mobile batch dryers are designed for drying all types of cereals, maize, oilseeds and legumes, as well as consumption, feed and sowing material.

The operation of the dryer consists in the continuous movement of grain in the dryer column until the desired (indirectly set) humidity is obtained, regardless of the initial humidity of the dried material.

The circulation dryer by RIELA Polska, thanks to the use of thermostats and measuring the temperature of the furnace, drying air and grain in the column, is subject to constant control and prevents exceeding the set values.


The drying process consists of four phases:

  • backfilling the column
  • drying the material
  • cooling the material
  • column emptying

Riela Polska type GTR dryers are equipped with a switchable heat exchanger. Thanks to it, it is possible to dry the grain with clean air, preheated in the exchanger, and not with exhaust gases.

The furnance in our dryers is longer than in other manufacturers’ dryers. Thanks to this, we minimize the risk of burning the grain with a flame.

The dryer head works in two modes: loading and recirculation and unloading. In the loading and recirculation mode, the grain is brought up through the central screw, then it falls into the drying chamber and circulates in this way. After switching to the unloading mode, the grain is also brought to the top by the central screw, and then it is unloaded outside the dryer thanks to the discharge chute.


Characteristics of the GTR dryer:

  • Made of galvanized steel

  • Perforated stainless steel tank

  • Air heater with fuel oil burner (optional with gas burner)

  • Furnace with a switchable heat exchanger

  • Optional air grain cleaner

  • Possibility of powering from the tractor’s PTO through the generator
