Read more on page 30 PCX Dispersion Dryers These dryers effectively disperse material, which helps to ensure rapid evaporation and uniform moisture content. Their intense and intimate mixing action increases product surface area, which makes them energy efficient and enables a compact unit to provide high throughputs. Applications include: minerals, agricultural products, chemicals, food (ingredients, additives, colorings), and specialty chemicals. They are ideal for drying wet cakes, pastes, and slurries. The dryers can be configured for many applications. A variety of heat sources, feeders, classifiers, and dispersion-plate configurations provide flexibility.

Ventilex fluid bed dryers maximize ROI by reducing energy expenditures. The energy cost per year to operate a large dryer is typically as much or more than the initial investment in the dryer. These dryers are engineered and manufactured in Europe where energy costs have been up to three times higher than in North America. Using state-of-the-art designs to recapture the thermal energy that was once just exhausted to the atmosphere and combining energy-efficient design with PLC controls and advanced algorithms guarantees energy savings of 10 to 60% over other dryers.
