Hosokawa Micron's Drymeister (DMR) flash dryer technology combines drying, milling, and classifying in a single installation. The Drymeister can transform damp feed material into an ultrafine powder with a narrow particle size distribution in a matter of seconds. Various options are available for feeding the Drymeister, for example a twin screw conveyor can be used. The product is taken into a milling chamber where a rotor reduces the particle size of the material. This produces a large contact area, allowing rapid drying. A hot stream of air fluidizes and dries these particles. The dry, light particles are carried up into the airflow and are able to pass the classifier wheel at the top of the installation. The still wet and therefore heavier particles will fall back into the drying chamber until they are also dry. The particles taken up by the drying air are separated out of the airstream.
