Tema wide dust recovery hood captures airborne particles and returns it to the process [video]

Tema wide dust recovery hood captures airborne particles and returns it to the process.
The Tema fluid bed dryers are equipped with a special designed wide hood that reduces the airflow velocity. As a result of this velocity drop, gravity takes over and the fluidised product will remain in the dryer. The expanded hood cuts the volume of product lost as waste and increases the capacity of finished product at the discharge. Undersized fine particles entrained in the airstream, can be […]

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 […]
