This eprint provides information on the design and use of this equipment for teaching and research. This manual, which is one of a series on locally made equipment for teaching and research in agricultural engineering and associated technologies, describes a rig for studying the air flow through and drying of grain by forced air circulation in a vertical bed. The rig is described and construction drawings are rovided; a parts list and sources of supply for purchased items are given. The use of the rig for air flow/pressure and grain drying drop experiments is described and the relevant theory is presented. It is not a rig for drying significant quantities of grain.
