I'm looking for an appropriate technology to separate an air-blown waste stream that contains sub 100 micron powder and water. A 20% moisture product is passed through a piece of equipment that splits the water from the base material and reduces it to a fine powder. I need to then remove the moisture from the air stream before it is re-absorbed into the powder. This is so that the powdered component of the stream can be reintroduced into a dry milling facility. This needs to operate at up to 20tph (i.e., 4tph of moisture is stripped out). Can you help or point me in the right direction?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Separating an air-blown waste stream11 September 2006 at 1:29pmMy only recommendation would be a flash dryer. Ove Christiansen wrote a good summary on this in CEP, "Find the Optimum Flash Dryer to Remove Surface Moisture", Vol.97/No.8, pg 54-58.
