"We generally see the likelihood of engulfment, and dryer fires increase anytime we have a wet harvest. So, in relation to entrapment in grain bins, when grain is high in moisture, there are a couple of different things that can happen. Generally, we see clumps form that can block the reclaim systems within the grain bins, we have bridging grain and cliffing for a shear face, or columns form within the bin." β€” Joe Mlynek, content creation expert and partner at Safety Made Simple
