MECMAR: GRAIN DRYERS SPECIALISTS SINCE 1958
Why Mecmar grain dryers
Flexibility for the farmer
The farmer is free to decide when to market his cereal, regardless of weather conditions, to seize the periods when the market price is more favourable.
Mecmar grain dryers, in addition to drying the cereal, perform a good cleaning of the impurities collected on the field, improving the quality of the final product and its commercial value.
Return on investment
The purchase of a Mecmar grain dryer requires a relatively limited capital commitment; in addition, the value of the used vehicle remains high over the years, ensuring an excellent return on investment.
Benefits of roasting
The cereal is treated delicately so that it can be used safely for animal feed; the Mecmar roasters eliminate the anti-nutritional and harmful components from the grains.
Used immediately after harvesting, Mecmar grain dryers quickly reduce the moisture content of the grains, to allow the storage of the cereal in total safety.
Mobile grain dryers are turn-key solutions that do not require additional loading, unloading or cooling systems. The machine has everything it takes to complete each phase.
Mobile grain dryers can be easily transported from customer to customer or within the same facility, to allow easy layout updates, replacements or movements from one company to another.
Technology tested in the field and appreciated for decades, optimized for a gentle, homogeneous and uniform treatment of the cereal. Years of experience to offer dryers with robust structure and made to last over time.
Mecmar: Tailor-made solutions for grain processing
Mecmar S.p.A. was born more than forty years ago from the family workshop used to repair tractors, in the province of Verona. Today it has become an international leader in the design and manufacture of machines and systems for the treatment of cereals, mainly grain dryers, both mobile and tower, ovens for roasting, cooking and heating, continuous coolers for granular products and special plants.
CPT 7/61 F and STR 13/119 T for corn and rice
FSN 15/138T for rapeseed and soybean
SSI 28/230 T2 BIO for maize and soya
Mobile dryer S 45/370 F for sunflower seeds

Mecmar’s product range includes the following types of products: mobile dryers (with capacities ranging from 7 to 75 tons), tower dry ers for large-scale drying plants, roasters for soy and other cereals, electric roasters for soy and other cereals, cogeneration biological dryers and special systems for drying a wide variety of products.
When considering the purchase of a grain dryer (whether new or used), Mecmar recommends that you do not limit yourself to a comparison of the capacity (in tons) of the various mobile dryer models on the market. In fact, it is also advisable to compare the hourly productivity (ton/h) of the different dryers. Dryers of different brands also have different hourly productivity, even though they have the same capacity at standstill. The hourly productivity, therefore, provides a common parameter for comparing dryers and is also a clear indicator of the machine’s performance during operation.
If a dryer looks good, it is already more likely to have been kept in good service and maintenance condition. In any case, more specific components to check are:
- Control panel and burner. Check for water seepage, rust, and possible modifications that may have been made on site. Are all the machine components original? Regardless of the age of the dryer, the control panel and burner should always remain in good condition.
- Center tube and augers. Inspect the center tube along its entire length, looking for areas that may have holes or old repairs. Also inspect the auger coil reinforcements-the thickness indicates how much longer they can last before needing to be replaced.
- Mechanical transmission components. The best indicator of the condition of the gearbox, which moves the center auger, is the oil in it. Check the belts and that the mixer is aligned correctly.
