fluid bed dryer for salt

Tema Process has developed a new range of industrial-grade and pharma-grade salt fluid bed dryers

Salt is extremely soluble in water. Sea, ocean water or salt brines are the major sources of the world supply of salt. The recovery of salt from sea/brine water occurs by the evaporation of water and until the salt begins to crystallize. Crystallization occurs when the concentration of a chemical exceeds the solubility in the particular solvent. Brine (salt water) is chemically purified and by a process of controlled thermal compression and vacuum evaporation, solidify and crystallize into a spherical […]

Saving energy with Evaporative Cooling on a Tema Fluid Bed Dryer

Fluid bed dryers work on the principle of fluidization, a process in which hot air is introduced into the spaces between solid particles. Each particle is in direct contact with, and surrounded by, the hot air – creating an efficient and uniform drying process. The material is dried in the first section of the machine and cooled in the second. Most minerals can be dried using evaporative cooling. Evaporative cooling means that the last part of the moisture is evaporated […]
