T-Type Dryer

Drying

Structure and Principle

To dry materials, this dryer relies on heat transfer from steam, hot water, or other heating medium (indirect heating type dryer). The heating medium is supplied to the jacket and rotating disc shaft. The material is fluidized by the force of gas blown in from the bottom and dried as it is stirred by the disc. The dried product is pushed out by the material feed, passes over the weir at the outlet, and is discharged as overflow.

Features

Compact
This indirect heating type dryer concurrently uses fluidized gas. It offers high drying efficiency and a small footprint.
High thermal efficiency allows many customers to use the dryer as a cooling system that uses the heating medium as coolant.

Low emissions
The gas is mainly used to stir the material, minimizing exhaust volumes. This in turn allows smaller exhaust gas treatment units.

Drying the material without fragmentation
The disc structure minimizes shear for drying with minimal fragmentation of the particles of the material.

Easy moisture content adjustment
Moisture content can be adjusted by controlling retention time and heating medium temperature. Retention times can be controlled by adjusting the height of the weir at the dryer outlet.

Applications

Organic crystals
Anhydrous glucose, granulated sugar, amino acid, terephthalic acid

Inorganic crystals
Potassium carbonate, calcium chloride dihydrate

Resins
PPS, PP

Other
Polymers, beads, iron powder, etc.
