Leading conglomerate Hayleys to enhance SL grain processing industry 

In an ambitious move to enhance Sri Lanka agriculture productivity with modern technology in grain processing technology, a leading local conglomerate Hayleys Group will be introducing the all-new Shizuoka Circulation type Grain Dryer.

Hayleys Agriculture, one of Sri Lanka’s leading agricultural solutions providers, partnered with Shizuoka Seiki Japan, which has been manufacturing agricultural machinery for over 40 years, is set to introduce the Circulation type Grain Dryer, with cutting-edge Japanese technology, in an effort to enhance the country’s grain processing industry.

The Shizuoka Grain Dryer will revolutionise the grain drying process, which has long been bottlenecked by the use of conventional drying methods in the local grain processing industry. 

A large portion of the industry currently relies on the sun-drying process, which results in high damage to the grain during the milling process for consumption and low germination rates for seed-purpose grain processing due to the long drying periods and low consistency, agriculture ministry sources said.  

On the other hand, the entire process was made even more challenging due to the susceptibility to environmental changes as well.

It is with these issues in mind that Hayleys Agriculture introduced an all-new, specifically designed grain drying system that can stand out from its competitors in the market through its improved drying mechanism that reduces grain damage and encourages even drying regardless of the weather condition.

The Grain Dryer is equipped with a specially designed bucket elevator and screw system to minimize any mechanical damage to the grain. 

It also ensures an even distribution of grain within the dryer to enhance the consistency of the process. Another key feature is an improved online grain moisture analyzer that provides highly accurate and continuous drying parameter readings, which allows for better control of the process. On top of that, the compact design of these dryers makes installation, maintenance, and operation extremely easy and user-friendly.

 Sumith Herath, Director/General Manager and SBU Head of Agri Equipment Division of Hayleys Agriculture commented: Sri Lankan farmers will be able to get firsthand experience of the fine mix of trustworthiness and reliability that Shizuoka has gained worldwide through decades of manufacturing agricultural machinery and technological advancements.

Aalong with Hayleys Agriculture’s unparalleled customer care, pre and after sales service capabilities, as all dryers are subject to a manufacturer’s warranty, which will be provided by Shizuoka through Hayleys Agriculture.
