Core Machines


The "Heart" of a Shivvers System


The heart of a Shivvers System, the core machine component controls grain flow throughout the drying process. Core machines can be purchased as a part of a complete Shivvers Performance System, or as an individual component and paired with a Shivvers Command Center® for use with existing equipment.

Core Machines are offered in two main designs: The Dri-Flo or Circu-Lator (Learn More). Each system design is available in 4 models to match your bin diameter & drying capacity needs.

Circu-Lator Models

Perfect For The Operator Looking For:

  • Optimum Drying Precision
  • Continuous-Flow & Batch Operation Flexibility
  • Maximum Storage Capabilities
  • A Comprehensive Drying & Storage Solution Without the Need for Additional Transfer Equipment

How It Works

Through the incorporation of a center vertical auger, Circu-Lator Systems offer a unique set of capabilities by allowing both continuous-flow & batch drying operation.

As tapered sweep augers pull an even layer of dried grain toward the center of the bin, the Ciru-Lator uses a center vertical auger to move grain up vertically through the center of the drying bin.

Grain can then be continuously carried through the system’s transfer auger system to storage bins, or recirculated within the drying bin.

The Circu-Lator’s center vertical auger provides 3 distinct benefits:

  • Ability to transform your drying bin into a storage bin by recirculating your last batch of dried grain within your drying bin.
  • Comprehensive grain drying & storage management without the need for additional transfer equipment, such as grain legs or air systems - the center vertical auger integrates with the Circu-Lator’s overhead transfer auger system to carry dried grain to storage bins.
  • An added layer of drying precision, provided by the option to recirculate grain through the drying process. 

Circu-Lator machines are available in 4 options, depending upon your operation's bin diameter & drying capacity needs.

Dri-Flo Models

Perfect For The Operator Looking For:

  • Continuous-Flow Operation
  • Maximized Removal Capacities (up to 2400 bph)
  • Integration With Existing Wet Transfer Systems, Such as Grain Legs or Air Systems

How It Works

Dri-Flo Systems unload dried grain through a horizontal unload auger located underneath the drying floor and do not feature a vertical unload auger.

Instead, tapered sweep augers pull an even layer of dried grain toward the Dri-Flo’s center bonnet. The center bonnet accurately meters grain into an underfloor auger for discharge outside of the bin.

The Dri-Flo System is perfect for the operator with an existing dry transfer system, looking for Shivvers Counter-Flow drying precision at maximized removal capacities. Dri-Flo machines are also available in 4 options, depending upon your operation's bin diameter & drying capacity needs.
