In the June 2020 issue of Process Heating Magazine, Solex Thermal Science explores the history of heating/cooling bulk solids, including advancements that have led to global use of indirect plate exchange technology.
In recent years, the oilseed processing industry has greatly expanded globally. The growing need for vegetable oils and biofuels is due to increase in global oil consumption and increasing awareness of environmental and sustainable alternative energies. In this article, we will explore some of the major types and uses of oilseeds along with conditioning and drying technologies in oilseed processing.
Drying of bulk solids is often required for preservation of the product and as a final step before storage. It also serves as a feed stock preparation step for adjusting the moisture content of the incoming material to the desired level for downstream processing.
The drying of grains and oilseeds is critical for downstream processing and storage as it prevents caking, agglomeration, spoilage and degradation of material.
