Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR DRYING AND COOLING SEEDS
Abstract:
Apparatus (10) for drying and cooling seeds (S), comprising a container (38) for the seeds (S); a device (15) to suck in the air (Va) from the outside environment and to send it toward the seeds (S) to be dried and cooled; a first heat exchange unit (11) configured to cool the air taken from the outside environment and raise its relative humidity; a second heat exchange unit (12) configured to lower the temperature and absolute humidity of the air from the first heat exchange unit (11); and a third heat exchange unit (13) fluidically connected to the second heat exchange unit (12) to receive the cooled air exiting from the latter, and provided with a first heat exchange circuit (110) able to be selectively activated to raise the temperature and lower the relative humidity of the air passing through said third heat exchange unit (13), and able to be selectively de-activated to send the cold air coming from said second heat exchange unit (12) to the seeds (S).
