  • PCX Dispersion Dryers

    February 11, 2013

    These dryers effectively disperse material, which helps to ensure rapid evaporation and uniform moisture content. Their intense and intimate mixing action increases product surface area, which makes them energy efficient and enables a compact unit to provide high throughputs. Applications include:...

  • Fluid Bed Dryers

    February 8, 2013

    When drying large volumes of material, energy consumption is a controllable expense. Ventilex fluid bed dryers maximize ROI by reducing energy expenditures. The energy cost per year to operate a large dryer is typically as much or more than the initial investment in the dryer. These dryers are...

  • Flash Drying Hazardous Materials

    February 8, 2013

    In many continuous flash drying applications, the products being dried and solvents being evaporated are often non-toxic and do not present an explosion hazard. Therefore, system design is relatively straightforward and the environmental issues are of minor concern as water vapor and sometimes...
