The innovative design of MEGA dryers and their drying system is nowadays recognized both in the domestic and international market which helped the company become a leader in this field.
Specialized in I & D and grain drying systems development.
MEGA´s annual production capacity leads the market: 140 drying equipments (850 modules of 20 tn/H) that achieve a capacity of 17,000 t/h of drying.
General technical features: The design of MEGA drying system can also be called mixed flow, because it combines the existing systems of columns and trestles. In these types of systems, the product to be dried goes down through columns (without perforated sheet) that have half trestles inside. This combination generates a zig-zag movement of the dried grain, which is accompanied by air at high temperature during a section of the columns, followed by a zone of tempering in which there is no air circulation inside the grain mass until it is crossed once again by another stream of hot air. These "flashes" of exposure to heat and waiting times occur several times as the grain goes down through the columns of the dryer.
In 2022-23, the International Grains Council’s July report anticipates worldwide wheat production to reach 770 million tonnes, down from 781 million tonnes in 2021-22, with 195 million tonnes available for trade.
Most wheat production comes from a handful of countries and even fewer are major exporters, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. Here’s a look at the top 10 wheat-producing countries worldwide, based on total yield in tonnes from 2000-2020 with 2022-23 production and consumption projections.
