Powder System Offers Advances in Flash-drying Technology
Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems' Drymeister model DMR-1 features advances in flash-drying technology. The machine is available in a range of sizes from pilot to large-scale production, with evaporation rates as high as 6,000 kilograms per hour. The design of the machine and its high speed dispersion rotor in combination with utilization of classifying rotor yields proficient drying efficiency. Features include the ability to handle a range of feed viscosities, from slurries to pastes to filter cakes. The machine maintains dispersion of solids for efficient drying and high inlet gas temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius. Additional features of the Hosokawa Micron Drymeister include minimal product build-up on internals, minimal product re-agglomeration, drying products as fine as 250 nanomolars and high evaporation rates. Closed-loop systems can also be designed using inert gas or superheated steam to dry explosive materials, heat sensitive materials and foods.
