  • Drum or Fluid Bed Dryers?

    Dryer suppliers often promote their particular technology. This has led to uncertainty among users selecting an optimal drying system. One common dilemma is the decision between drum dryers (rotary kiln dryers) or fluidized bed dryers (vibration fluidized bed dryers). In some cases the two systems...

  • Particulate Monitor for Dryers

    This particulate monitor is designed for chemical spray dryers and pharmaceutical powder fluid bed dryers. Moisture present in a drying process will not affect operation nor will the buildup of wet powders. The company’s proprietary combination of induction technology and a protected probe...

  • Liquid to Powder Conversion: Improving Efficiency and Performance

    High yield is always an important factor in selecting the right drying process for converting liquids to powders – and the higher the cost of the product the more important it becomes. There are various methods by which to implement this process and the decision on which to use of course...

  • Running the Plant on Dried Potato By-Products

    A °Celsius screw heat exchanger is used for a sustainable co-fermentation process in which wastewater, together with potato skins and starch, is converted into biogas. As a result Pizzoli S.p.A, Bologna, Italy, the biggest potato processor in Italy that has been supplying a wide range of fresh...

  • Drying End Point Measurement Options

    Drying is a vital unit operation in various process industries. The end point of drying is one of the critical process parameter that normally dictates final product quality attributes. Industries use moisture/solids analysis for a variety of process and quality tests. The speed and precision of...

  • Comber Nutsche Filter-Dryer

    The Comber Nutsche filter-dryer with integral active isolation chamber is a central piece of equipment used in many bio-pharmaceutical and chemical processes that can filter a slurry and dry under vacuum to a bone-dry powder, and then discharge the powder for packaging, all in a fully contained...

The Bella dryer can be used for drying, mixing, spraying, agglomerating, and cooling in the same unit without additional equipment or costs. Operation is efficient because...

  • Microwave Mixer For Heating, Drying, Cooking

    The microwave mixer is used for heating, drying, and cooking applications. Marion Mixers has partnered with AMTek Microwave to design and manufacture microwave vessel heating systems for the processing industries. Benefits include: shorter batch times, smaller footprint, energy-efficient conversion...

  • AeroDry Conveyor Dryers

    AeroDry conveyor dryers process a variety of agglomerated powder and pre-formed materials. Applications include drying, curing, heat setting, tempering, polymerization, solvent reduction, and other reactions. These thermal processes apply to products such as fine chemicals, minerals, food additives...

  • Abrasion-Resistant Linings in Cyclones

    Cyclones that remove abrasive product or dust from dryer exhaust are often lined with Kalocer abrasion-resistant alumina ceramic tiles to extend the cyclones' operating life. These pre-engineered tile linings, installed by Abresist, resist wear, abrasion, and corrosion from the materials being...
