The presence and location of a single-blade "manifold" in the P-Type Ring drying system is what differentiates it from the Flash dryer and other Ring dryers.
The solution for drying thermally sensitive products.
The manifold uses the centrifugal forces created through passing a product containing airstream around a curve to concentrate the product into a moving layer. The adjustable splitter blade is used to cut this layer and return the heavier, semi-dried material back to the top of the drying column, where the temperature is lower, for another pass through the system. The lighter, drier product exits the manifold and proceeds to the product collection system.
In addition to improving the thermal efficiency of the system, the use of the P-Type manifold in recycling the solids to a cooler section of the system, also minimizes the risk of thermal degradation. As a result the P-Type Ring Dryer is well suited to use with thermally sensitive materials including modified starches and soy fibre.
The Feed-Type Ring Dryer incorporates a top bend and simplified manifold, with the heavier material recycled via a chute into the wet feed disperser. The Feed-Type Ring Dryer is used for waste products, sludges, animal feeds, organic fertilizers and chemicals.
The GEA Flash Dryer is a pneumatic system primarily used to dry products requiring the removal of free moisture. Drying takes place in a matter of seconds.
Almost any product requiring a powdered product can be dried in a Ring Dryer, which can handle a broad range of feed materials including powders, cakes, granules, flakes, pastes, gels, and slurries in addition to viscous products such as vital what gluten (VWG) which utilize a a proprietary feed extrusion system.
When it comes to drying pastes, filter cakes and highly viscous slurries, the SWIRL FLUIDIZER® provides a cost-effective solution for obtaining a fine, homogenous, non-agglomerated dry powder – in one compact processing operation. The SWIRL FLUIDIZER® is the preferred choice of customers within both chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries.
