Schak to Manage Kason Fluid Bed Line

Schak to Manage Kason Fluid Bed Line

James Schak has been named product manager of fluid bed processing equipment for Kason Corp., where he will oversee expansion and technical support of the company's line of Vibro-Bed circular vibratory fluid bed dryers and coolers.

“Jim brings 30-plus years of experience with direct and indirect dryers, ranging from process engineering and design to teaching and marketing," said Henry Alamzad, president, Kason Corp. "We expect him to expand the application range of Kason's circular vibratory design through his wealth of technical expertise."
Credited with numerous advancements in fluid bed drying technology, Schak says, "Kason's circular design offers high-energy efficiency and excellent cleanability, plus built-in internal back mixing that allows wetter, sloppier feed materials to be dried with a lower heat history.”
Schak was previously chem systems national sales manager for GEA Niro in Columbia, MD, and a process engineer for The Witte Co. in Washington, NJ. He holds a BS in Chemical Engineering from New Jersey Institute of Technology, and has been the instructor for the University of Wisconsin’s drying technology course for more than 13 years.
In addition to circular fluid bed dryers, coolers, and moisturizers, Kason Corp. manufactures Vibroscreen circular vibratory screeners, Centri-Sifter centrifugal sifters, and Cross-Flo static sieves.
