Clark & Sutherland provide a design and consultation service to allow you to see the proposed layout of the plant before you even start work on site. Using 3D CAD software alongside our point cloud scans we can design a complete turnkey system for your plant. 


Our 3D scanner collates every single dimension available in the space to which it is placed therefore allowing us to take a complete like for like replica of your site into our design software. Once the scans are collated, a 3D model of the plant can be created and the new proposed equipment can be placed in to the customers’ requirements.

If you require advice on how best to layout new machinery or re configure old systems, please contact a member of our team and we will be happy to carry out a site survey.

Grain Driers

Clark & Sutherland is well known across Scotland for designing, manufacturing and installing traditional heavy duty tray driers, both with and without stirrers. In recent years we've installed dozens of tray driers from Caithness to Islay and back across to Edinburgh.

We manufacture our own furnaces but also regularly provide trays and fans for use with biomass burners. Interchangeable heavy duty augers are available to adapt crop stirrers for use with wood chips.

Give us a call if you'd like us to arrange a visit to your farm, or if you already know where you'd like a tray drier situated, contact us for a quote.

In addition to tray driers, we also supply and install mechanical driers such as continuous double flow driers. Give us a call for further details.

We pride ourselves on providing independent grain dryer advice to deliver individually designed, well-engineered solutions. We work with many manufacturers, supplying and installing various ranges of dryers including the Allmet continuous mixed flow dryer. Allmet was patented in 1953 and was one of the first continuous mixed flow grain dryers. It has evolved to become one of the leading brands in the industry worldwide.
