Sukup Introduces new Phase Converter for Centrifugal Dryers

Single-phase power is sufficient to run Sukup's 16-foot centrifugal dryer, with up to 50 horsepower motors.

Published on: Dec 6, 2011

The development of an on-board power conversion system for its 16-foot centrifugal dryer is helping Sukup offer its products to growers with only single-phase power – without costly wiring additions or external phase converters.

The new circuitry in the Sukup Single-Phase Centrifugal Dryer offers on-board power conversion and the capacity to run fan motors up to 50 horsepower.

The innovation makes the dryer a "plug-and-play" tool for farmers with single-phase power and allows them to dry more grain with bigger equipment than they have been able to in the past.

Sukup adds circuitry to centrifugal dryers to help operators with no three-phase power get the most from their dryers without external phase converters.
