Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2011/132481
Kind Code:
Provided is a grain-drying facility that can effectively utilize the thermal energy of hot air generated by the combustion of biomass in a biomass combustion furnace. The disclosed grain-drying facility (1) includes: a biomass combustion furnace (3) provided with a heat exchanger (24) that generates hot air on the basis of the heat of combustion of biomass fuel and outside air taken in from outside; and a circulation-type grain drier (2) provided with a grain-drying section (7) to which the hot air generated by the biomass combustion furnace (3) is supplied via a hot-air supply pipe (15). The circulation-type grain drier (2) is provided with a grain-heating section (6) including: a plurality of heating tubes (6a) provided inside a grain storage/circulation tank (5) for heating the grains therein; and an air-exhaust fan (14) that is linked to the exhaust-side opening (6c) of each heating tube (6a), the exhaust-side opening being located on the side of one end of each heating tube. The circulation-type grain drier (2) also includes an exhaust-hot-air supply pipe (11) that links the exhaust hot air discharged from the biomass combustion furnace (3) with the intake-side opening (6b) of each heating tube (6a), the intake-side opening being located on the side of the other end of each heating tube.
