Contents: A rotary drum dryer prototype was designed, fabricated and tested to combine convection drying with conduction heating of paddy to increase moisture reduction rates. Ambient air forced inside the drum counter-flow to the direction of the cascading grains brought about “dryeration” of the hot grains, resulting in cooler grain output and increased moisture reduction rates. Its partial drying capacity doubled that of the benchmark pre-dryer at 5 rpm drum speed and quadrupled at 7 rpm, requiring only a single-pass operation. Tests using freshly harvested and re-wetted paddy showed that partial drying capacity, final moisture content and moisture reduction rate were all significantly affected by counter-flow air velocity, Its overall thermal efficiency was also 50% higher.
