The results of operating a submerged plastic tube heat exchanger in the 1080 m**2 Research Salt Gradient Solar Pond at Argonne National Laboratory are presented. The heat exchange system simulates grain drying in which the temperature of the ambient air is raised 8-15 degree C when it passes through a liquid-to-air heat exchanger that is coupled to the submerged heat exchanger. Approximately 1. 0 multiplied by 10**1**1 J (100 MMBtu) were extracted from the pond. The operation had no adverse effects on the stability of the salt gradient.
