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.
What are biosolids? Learn exactly what they are, how they are processed and what type of technologies are used to dry and cool biosolids. Read more about the Solex Heat Exchanger and how it uses the principals of thermal dynamics to improve downstream processes for the biosolids processing industry.
Read about how coffee beans are processed for one of the world's most-consumed beverages. Learn where coffee beans come from, how they are harvested, and how they are processed, including the drying process that Solex Thermal's Indirect Heat Exchange technology is taking a prominent role in to modernize and make more efficient.
During sugar processing, the cooling and drying of crystalized sugar is the most important step after the purification process to guarantee a high quality of finished product.
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.
Fluid bed technology is used for cooling, heating and drying of bulk solids materials, and takes place by passing a gas (most commonly air) through a perforated distributor plate which then flows through a layer (bed) of solids.
