However, rapid drying, using air with extremely high temperature, can produce stress on the kernels and form a crack or fissure in the kernel. Hence, special attention should be paid to the temperature and relative humidity of the drying air.

2021-2-17  The rate of drying is determined by the moisture content and the temperature of the grain and the temperature, the (relative) humidity and the velocity of the air in contact with the grain. Figure 5.1 (see Figure 5.1. Drying and Drying Rate Curves.) demonstrates the drying of a single layer of grain exposed to a constant flow of air.

Basic principles of grain drying Food and Agriculture

2021-2-17  The dewpoint temperature is the temperature at which condensation occurs if moist air is cooled at constant absolute humidity. The three temperature terms are of significance in understanding grain drying principles. Two additional thermodynamic terms of the drying air are required in grain drying calculations: enthalpy and specific volume.

Drying Times for Corn with Heated Aeration

2009-11-3  A rough rule of thumb is that adding 20°F to air reduces its relative humidity by half. The next 20°F increase drops the new value by half, the third 20° F rise drops that value by half. Table 2 in How to Reduce On-Farm Grain Drying Energy Costs shows how changing the temperature of an air mass affects its relative humidity.
