Convection dryers vary greatly in size, features and delivery method and design of the air and heat distribution. To meet your process requirements efficiently, it is important to select the right type of dryer for your products and processes. It is equally important, however, to properly size and design the dryer.
Replacing non-functioning boiler systems — pressurized vessels placed in a facility to heat water — can take quite a bit of time. Enter the boiler-bypass system: a non-pressurized system that sits outside a facility or building. It heats up hot water, which then goes through the heat exchanger inside the building. Such units can be deployed rapidly and are scalable.
