A cloud-based digital service designed to help improve yield while reducing energy costs and the thermal processing equipment’s environmental footprint was launched. MoisturePro, one of a suite of digital services offered by Bühler Insights, is a cloud platform for the food and feed processing industries.
When it comes to heating and drying needs on construction sites, a fuel-efficient system can significantly affect operating costs. The major types of heating systems are direct-fired open flame, indirect air and circulating water (hydronic). Hydronic heaters offer good fuel efficiency and do so while minimizing fire risk.
The 500°F (260°C), top-loading oven can be used for applications such as drying water from racks of piston rings. Workspace dimensions of this oven measure 48 x 48 x 36", and 40 KW are installed in Incoloy-sheathed tubular heating elements.
Dürr AG will purchase the Megtec and Universal businesses of Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc. (B&W) for $130 million. Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany-based Dürr will integrate the companies into its industrial environmental technology division, Clean Technology Systems.
A Wisconsin-based provider of air-pollution-control equipment, industrial ovens, dryers and ancillary systems released a free guide for manufacturers looking to understand best practices in selecting, purchasing, installing and operating an industrial oven or dryer.
Spherical dryer is designed for isolating and drying active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) after wet chemical processes. Rosenmund design offers features such as fast drying, mixing and granulation; ease of cleaning (WIP/CIP); total product discharge; a short drying time due to a high heat transfer design; and explosion pressure shock-resistant construction.
Rotary-drum dryer design resolves problems with inconsistent feedstocks. The dryers can process green biomass — used for co-firing with biomass applications — to a material of uniform moisture content.
Uniformly drying a non-uniform product is difficult. Decreasing the drying time of heat-sensitive products is challenging. One example is a three-dimensional product saturated with water — for instance, molded-fiber packaging products.
