The Kongskilde Ventus 2400 drying system is designed for the drying of straw in big bales. The drying process takes place in a drying section, which holds one big bale at a time. Wet bales are placed on a conveyor, from where they are conveyed one by one to the drying section. The required drying time is set on a timer. When the bale is dried, it is automatically moved out of the drying section, to be replaced by the next wet bale. Dry bales emerging from the drying section are moved onto a push section. Once on the push section the dry bale is pushed sideways on to the floor. Depending of the smoothness of the floor this can normally be done up to a maximum of 8 bales. The dry bales are then placed side by side on the floor ready to be picked up with a fork lift.
