Industrial drying system designs include rotary dryers, calciners, screw presses, multidisc thermal processors, flash dryers and fluid bed dryers. What they all have in common is they are used to remove excess moisture from the product being processed. Available heat sources range from hot fluids and steam to gas and electric. In this photo gallery, the advantages and disadvantages of some dryer designs are explored.
Pressure-reducing valves, expansion joints and steam traps all are commonly uninsulated components in process heating applications. Yet with a little knowledge and attention to detail, you can identify opportunities to insulate these components and other weak links in your heating system and save energy.
