A Holo-Flite Thermal Dryer is useful in heating and drying a variety of materials. In chemical processing, they are used to dry alumina, carbon black, sodium, chloride and plastics, and for heating pesticides, potassium and chloride. In industrial power drying, the dryer is used for volume reduction of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes and for heating limestone filler and petroleum coke. They are also used for drying molybdenum and fine coal in the mineral processing industry and are useful for many one-of-a-kind heating and drying applications in the food processing and environmental industries, such as soil remediation.
In the thermal drying process, material is first received into a cyclone, which serves as a collection unit. The cyclone transfers the material through the bottom opening into the actual dryer. Ambient air is sucked into the system through a heat exchanger. The heat is generated by some form of electrical heating device, gas burner or steam. The steam and hot air are then sucked into the blower. These vapors are passed through the blower, where they are agitated with extremely high temperatures, and into the drying unit. The drying section is large enough to create the necessary dwell time to ensure that the hot air fully absorbs the humidity, thoroughly drying the material.
