TEMA Process – Fish feed dryers

Fish feed dryers: Manufactured feeds are an important part of modern commercial aquaculture, providing the balanced nutrition needed by farmed fish. The feeds, in the form of powders, granules or pellets, provide the nutrition in a stable and concentrated form, enabling the fish to feed efficiently and grow to their full potential. The processed “wet” fish feed granules, meal or pellets, can not be transported and stored immediately and require to be dried first. The TEMA Process fluid bed dryers […]

Drying and cooling granules and powders in a static fluid bed

Drying and cooling granules and powders in a static fluid bed: The static fluid bed dryers have no mechanical drive, which means they are lighter and also lower priced. A fluidised bed is a physical phenomenon occurring when a quantity of a solid particulate substance is placed under appropriate conditions to cause a solid/fluid mixture to behave as a fluid. This is usually achieved by the introduction of pressurized air through the particulate medium.

Using heat of cogeneration (CHP) to dry organic fertilizer [video]

DRYING – Cogeneration (CHP). Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) is the use of a heat engine or power station to generate electricity and useful heat at the same time. Products are more effectively dried by using the energy of extinguishing gas generated as a by-product in the process. Since the product is dried using the waste heat of a cogeneration power generator and the use of other heat sources can be restricted or reduced, it’s an energy saving […]

refuse-derived fuel-drying

Refuse derived fuel drying

RDF Drying : Although the cement industry increasingly uses alternative fuels such as refuse-derived fuel (RDF), biomass and sewage, the high water content of these fuels places a ceiling on their maximum share in a cement plant’s fuel mix. However, economical drying technology can extend the contribution of such fuels and move the goal posts in alternative fuel use. The high water content of waste streams such as refuse-derived fuel (RDF), biomass and sewage sludge often limits their use as […]

Food Safety for Spices: In the spice industry steam treatment is preferred,100% natural and chemical and radiation free

Most products intended for human consumption must undergo sanitation steps that eliminate deadly pathogens. These steps might include cooking, pasteurization, pathogen-killing chemical washes, and irradiation. In the spice industry, steam treatment is preferred treatment. The Steam Sterilization Process is 100% natural and is chemical and radiation free. Steam treating uses saturated steam under pressure for a specific duration and temperature in order to kill microorganisms. It is the preferred method in the organic industry because it kills spores without damaging […]

Static fluid bed dryers and coolers are ideal for products that are free flowing

Static fluid bed dryers and coolers are ideal for products that are free flowing

Static fluid bed dryers and coolers are ideal for products that are free flowing. This type of dryer is referred to as a static fluid bed because the dryer remains stationary during operation. The static system provides an effective method of drying relatively free flowing particles with a reasonable narrow particles size distribution. The feed may take the form of powders, granules, crystals, seed, pre-forms and agglomerates. A static fluidized bed dryer can be continuous or batch operation and may […]

Commissioning Sea Salt (NaCl) TEMA Process Fluid Bed Dryer

Sea salt is salt produced from the evaporation of seawater. Its use is practical only in warm climates where the evaporation rate exceeds the precipitation rate, either annually or for extended periods, and ideally, where there are steady prevailing winds. When an adequate layer of salt has built up on the pan floor, harvesting commences. A machine digs up the salt, deposits it onto a conveyor belt, which carries it to trucks. Contracted workers also harvest by hand. The raw salt is […]
