  • Microwave Drying System

    February 27, 2013

    Marion Mixers’ new microwave mixer features a horizontal trough reactor with a paddle-style agitator, transmitter, and waveguide system with controls. The paddle-style agitator keeps the material in constant motion with gentle agitation as the ingredients are being heated. This allows the...

  • Cylindrical Plow Blender Dryers and Vacuum Dryers

    February 26, 2013

    These dryers use a combination of enhanced mixing technology to fluidize the ingredients exposing more of the particles to the drying effects of heat and vacuum, indirect heating via ASME jackets designed for hot water, steam, hot oil, or vapor, and, vacuum in a vacuum dryer to lower the flash...

  • Custom-Designed Conveyor Dryers

    February 25, 2013

    Buhler Aeroglide provides single-pass and multi-stage custom-designed conveyor dryers that enable the efficient drying of super absorbent polymers (SAP), elastomers, polyacrylonitrile (PAN), fluoropolymers, and other industrial products. Complete control of airflow and temperature provide the...

  • Circular Fluid Bed Dryer

    February 22, 2013

    The Kason Vibro-Bed circular fluid bed processing system for batch or continuous operation increases efficiency, cuts cleaning time and reduces cost. Inherent rigidity of the circular fluid bed processing chamber (in 18- to 84-in.-diam, exceeds that of traditional rectangular fluid bed processors,...

  • 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...
