  • Indirect-Fired Rotary Calciner Transforms Wood Biomass into Biocoal

    October 9, 2014

    Heyl & Patterson Inc. supplied an indirect-fired rotary calciner to the University of Minnesota Duluth’s Natural Resources Research Institute (NRRI) minerals lab in Coleraine, MN to transform wood biomass into torrefied wood, or “biocoal.” The biocoal will have an energy...

  • Increasing Drying Efficiency

    September 9, 2014

    Drying processes are one of the most energy intensive unit operations. Drying has been reported to account for anywhere from 12 to 20% of the energy consumption in the industrial sector. Typical adiabatic dryers account for about 85% of all industrial dryers, where air is heated by the combustion...
