Managing Director, David Perry, said “It is imperative that our British farmers are able to continue to support this country through these uncertain times, as a company we aim to support them every way we can with the help of our trusted dealer network. From new installations, upgrading systems and carrying out servicing work, Perry will ensure we have the staff available to support our customers, while continuing to maintain social distancing.”

To this end, Perry of Oakley Ltd., the UK’s most experienced manufacturer of materials handling & drying equipment, have remained open, operational and are still helping their customers with essential maintenance, repairs and new installation works, in preparation for harvest 2020, despite the impact of Covid-19.

A significant part of the Perry equipment range is their driers.  The drier range consists of two continuous mixed flow grain driers; the top-spec Savannah and the entry-level Mistral.

The Savannah Series driers have Perry’s own advanced PLC panel, which is designed and programmed in house, and the auto control, which uses both the exhaust air temperature and hot grain temperature to give advanced control of the drier, to maintain a consistent moisture content of the discharged grain. The Mistral series drier is controlled via a hard-wired control panel, though this is easily upgradable to the Perry PLC touch screen control panel.

The fans on both driers are controlled by an inverter, so there is the potential to save power and crop lift off by running the fans at reduced speed. The unique crop set up page within the control panel, automatically selects the initial fan speed best suited to the crop.

To promote consistent movement of the grain down the grain column, even in very wet conditions, all Savannah Series Driers are fitted with our pneumatically controlled Shutter discharge. As standard, the Mistral range of driers are fitted with Perry’s proven roller discharge (shutter discharge is optional). Perry have set in place dedicated aftersales care, including a technical support line to provide a first point of call for all technical enquiries on any Perry machine.

The key features of the Savannah & Mistral range, provide a truly commercial specification grain drier for use on farms and commercial grain stores.

Perry of Oakley Ltd. also manufactures a full range of 8tph – 1000tph handling equipment including chain & flight conveyors, belt & bucket elevators, augers & screw conveyors, aspirator pre-cleaners, belt conveyors & much more!
