Specializing in the design and installation of dryers for hop, mint, and filberts (hazelnuts).
Pioneer of Agricultural Processes
We’ve been drying, and preserving for 50 years in the Willamette and Yakima valley. We specialize in the design and installation of dryers for hop, mint, and filberts (hazelnuts).
It started with variations of Branson burners in the 1950s, working closely with Capital Farms, Weathers, Goschie, Rogue Brewery, and many more.
Since then, there have been many innovations, one being VFD (Variable Frequency Drives), which automatically adjusts the speed of the fans based on resistance and improving the efficiency of operation. Being able to monitor the levels of moisture and pressure variation anticipates blowout before it happens.
Around the Clock 24/7
For those who don’t want hops dried with oil, or if you want to use natural gas, we build dual-fuel burner systems to give one the flexibility between diesel and natural gas.
We work with Honeywell combustion controls and other innovative control providers to, Digi-Span temp controls, manual reset hight limit controls, combustion supervision controls, flame sensor controls, amplifier, main/pilot gas valves, main/pilot gas regulators, high/low pressure gas safety switches, etc.
We can travel to your location servicing a range from a single dryer to 20 or more dryers anywhere in the Pacific Northwest. We can also prefabricate your drying equipment at our shop prior to field installation.
Our goal is to install and service the dryers to be as efficient and dependable as possible for you and your harvests.
