Drying Bulk Solids, Oilseeds and Grains
Grains or oilseeds pass slowly downward between a series of vertical hollow heat exchanger plates.
Hot water, steam (or waste heat) flow through the plates to heat the material and evaporate moisture from the product.
A small amount of cross-flow air is used to remove moisture from the product.
Precise Temperature And
Solex dryer/conditioner technology enables both moisture content and the temperature of the final product to be independently and precisely controlled. The combination of the two media - indirect heat and cross-flow air - enables accurate control over the desired outcomes. The indirect method of heating regulates the final product temperature; at the same time, the amount of cross-flow air used regulates the final product moisture content.
Ultra Efficient Technology
The indirect method of heating the product serves to heat the product and maintain the temperature of the cross-flow air. Since the temperature of the cross-flow air does not drop, the air maintains its moisture carrying capacity and is capable of carrying larger quantities of moisture. As a result, only a very small amount of cross-flow air is needed to remove moisture from the product. The result is efficiencies of greater than 90%.
Green Technology Enables Use Of Waste Heat
Due to the indirect method of heating, waste heat from elsewhere in your facility can be used as a heat source to indirectly heat the product, further enhancing the efficiency of this drying technology. When waste heat is used, the dryer operates with minimal new energy consumption - operating nearly for free.
