Products like seeds, fruit, meat, spices, yeast, gelatine, powder, wood and spices have all been dried throughout history. Basically these products are hygroscopic, they absorb moisture from the air so drying is done to extract the unwanted moisture or dry the water particles. Seeds can be preserved for longer period by lowering he moisture content of seeds. The quality of the seed, much like the quality of dried fruits or spices, is crucial to the life span of the seed. Seeds are the basis of plant life, destined for consumption or rebirth and regrowth. Like a dormant egg or cocoon, seeds preserve themselves until the prime moment of plantation in the ground or water. However, seeds age and die over time due to moisture content, humidity and temperature. Seed drying should be done to preserve seeds for plantation and to lengthen a seed's life otherwise seeds may lose their ability to germinate or become diseased depending on the moisture within the seed.
The moisture content of the seeds needs to be kept around 5%. This is achieved by drying the seeds. Conventionally, seeds are dried at elevated temperatures which destroys their germination potential. Seed dryers, based on desiccant dehumidification drying technology, dry the seeds to the required level in approximately eight hours without affecting their quality and germination potential.
Technical Drying Services (TDS) provides seed drying services with the help of desiccant based seed dryers. The seed dryer consists of a chamber with trays for keeping the seeds to be dried and a desiccant dehumidifier which continuously feeds dry air to the chamber. This unique air distribution pattern optimizes drying capacity and time. The quality and the germination potential of the seeds remain intact and their longevity increases. The main USP of TDS services is that it provides highly qualified technical manpower along with all the required equipments. As the service is provided on rental basis it can be availed whenever required.
