Plastic polymers are all around us in the products we use every day. Learn what they are, how they're made and how Solex Thermal Science is using their indirect heat exchange technology to make the drying, heating and cooling of polymers more stable and efficient.
Learn what minerals are, how they are processed and what technologies can be used for the processing of minerals. Read more about the Solex Heat Exchanger and how it uses the principals of thermal dynamics to improve downstream processes for the minerals processing industry.
Foundry sand is clean, uniformly sized, high quality silica sand, used in foundry casting processes. The sand is bonded to form molds or patterns used for ferrous (iron and steel) and non-ferrous (copper, aluminum, brass) metal castings. Shake-out sand from completed metal casting are often reclaimed back into the foundry sand process.
In the last 25 years, a more efficient and cost effective method has been introduced, using indirect heat transfer to heat free flowing bulk solids. Indirect heat exchange technology results in a higher quality finished product with increased energy efficiency and reduced emissions.
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.
