Spray Dryers Feature Rotary Atomizer Technology
Dedert's new range of spray dryers, built around its patent pending atomizer, adds to its portfolio of evaporation and drying technologies. The new design, based on magnetic bearing technology, eliminates the need for high-maintenance gear drives, bearings, shafts, oil lubrication and cooling systems.
The rotary atomizer is a mechanical and compact design, which was designed to offer lower maintenance and higher reliability over conventional rotary technology. The atomizer comes equipped with a variable-speed drive and a fully automated PLC-based utility and control system.
Key features include magnetic-bearing technology, speeds of up to 16,000 rpm, compatibility with existing installations and units available up to 350 hp. The unit also includes a gas disperser to ensure optimum contact between the heated drying gas and atomized spray cloud. A proprietary explosion vent-door protection system for new and existing installations meets the latest code requirements and is flush mounted, providing sanitary tight seal design.
