Zimmerman was established in 1963 to build the first modern Tower Dryers. FFI purchased Zimmerman in 1989 and FFI/Zimmerman became a part of GSI in 2001. All FFI Modular Tower Dryers have their roots in the Zimmerman Tower Dryer Design and have been and will continue to be the market leader in grain drying technology alongside the Zimmerman tradition.
The FFI’s Modular Tower Dryer design natively allows for easy heat recovery without the uneven heat issues of other designs, as well as a patented self-cleaning divider floor and quiet operation with the fans located inside the grain column.
In addition to a quality product with exceptional design, GSI has the Dealers and Service Technicians to ensure your dryer works when you need it because we know how important that is; harvest is a short window of time and you depend on your dryer working at peak performance.
|CAPACITIES/HR||Up to 1,690 bph Dry & Cool @ 5 pt. removal|
|Fuel||LP or Natural Gas|
|Standard Grain Inverters|
|Standard Vacuum Cool Heat Recovery|
The adjustable floor allows either 1/3 or 1/5 of the dryers column to be used for cooling, allowing for higher capacities in high moisture conditions or maximum cooling in more normal conditions as well as a higher exiting grain temperature to take advantage of cooling bins, increasing capacity and improving efficiency and grain quality.
Our grain inverters move all but the outside 2" (50.8 mm) of grain, promoting higher test weights, maximum grain quality, and reduced fuel usage. The outside layer of wet grain is dried using the heat that would have otherwise escaped the dryer. When using inverters, you eliminate over-dried grain and maximize drying efficiency as well as grain quality as you simplify your operation with a convenient clean-out door for easy and quick maintenance.
Improve your accuracy with the static moisture sampler. Debris guards ensure a trash-free sample and delivers a uniform representative sample to the test chamber. A blower system gently moves the grain out of the chamber, cleaning it each cycle. Get the most accurate results as the moisture reading used to monitor/calculate discharge grain moisture is only taken while the grain is static and not flowing.
One size does not fit all when it comes to drying grain, and that’s why FFI features a complete lineup of grain dryers. With the ability to dry in or out of bin, batch or continuous flow we have the dryer to fit your needs and maximize your profitability.

"WatchDog offers the farmer a little peace of mind"Trafton Shannon - Saline County Missouri
Using his smartphone, Shannon is able to monitor the dryer operation with GSI’s WatchDog System, which monitors various dryer functions such as moisture, temperature and dryer status, all from the convenience of a home or office computer, or from a smartphone. It sends texts or emails to Shannon’s smartphone on the dryer’s progress. It offers the farmer a little peace of mind. “When I go to bed, I set my phone next to me and I can see what is going on down the road,” Shannon says. “And when I am on the road or in the field, I can monitor the grain system and shut it down if necessary.”
